28 July 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Fans of "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" got a nice treat on Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Diego when Fox debuted five minutes of the upcoming cartoon crossover. Airing Sept. 28, “The Simpson Guy” was teased in May with a few photos and an official description. As you can see, the episode will also include cameos from "Bob’s Burgers" and "The Cleveland Show."

26 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that Family Guy will kick off Season 13 with a special one-hour premiere that crosses over with The Simpsons, in an episode entitled "The Simpsons Guy". During the Family Guy Comic-Con panel earlier today, Fox debuted a special five-minute clip that shows the Griffin clan in Family Guy somehow getting stranded in Springfield, where they meet The Simpsons.

Watch as these two Animation Domination hits share the screen together, along with a few surprise cameos from Cleveland Brown (Mike Henry) and Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) from Bob's Burgers, then read on for more details that were revealed during the panel.

Family Guy producers Steve Callaghan and Richard Appel also teased a special Christmas episode, where Jesus returns and the guys all discover that he's a virgin, as they go on a quest to get him laid. Voice actor Mike Henry acknowledged the sacrilegious nature of the episode. »

Hank Azaria’s Voice To Watch Over ‘Bordertown’

21 July 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

His face is familiar enough, but it’s Hank Azaria’s voice that has become recognizable around the world. He has rattled his tonsils as everyone from Moe Szyslak to Professor Frink in The Simpsons and is now taking the main role in another animated series from the writer of Family Guy. Bordertown is a potentially explosive look at the life of Bud Buckwald, an individual on the less correct side of the tracks who just so happens to work for Border Patrol.

Following Will Ferrell’s toe-dipping into similar waters, it seems lifting the lid on who gets in is the big topic for American satirists at the moment. Azaria will be supported by Alex Borstein (aka Lois Griffin) in a dual assignment as his wife and daughter, with Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) and Judah Friedlander (30 Rock) playing the rest of the Buckwald brood.

Eye on Emmy: Getting On's Niecy Nash Talks Fears, Feces and June Squibb

13 June 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Niecy Nash‘s bold looks and over-the-top persona made her a household name, so it’s understandable the actress was “nervous” to take on the decidedly unglamorous role of Nurse Denise “Didi” Ortley in the HBO comedy Getting On. As it turns out, she had absolutely nothing to worry about.

The harsh, fluorescent lighting of the show’s hospital set may not have been flattering — Nash playfully calls it “the worst lighting God ever created” — but it forced her to step out of her comfort zone, and into the kind of role »

Mindy Kaling Defends ‘Mindy Project’ First Season at Fox Panel

9 June 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The title “Girls Night Out” was a fitting name for the panel that Fox held at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood on Monday, as some of the net’s most prominent female figures turned up to talk their career beginnings, their shows and the challenges that come with working in the industry.

Mindy Kaling (“The Mindy Project”), Jane Lynch (“Glee”) Chelsea Peretti (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Alex Borstein (“Family Guy”), Yeardley Smith (“The Simpsons”), Liz Meriwether (“New Girl”) and Heather Kadin (“Sleepy Hollow”) were all in attendance at the panel. Lynch was sure to tease the audience with some info about “Glee’s” final season.

The Emmy winner said that they hope the last handful of “Glee” episodes all carry a very strong message with them, and even revealed they might get “some of the old kids back” to close out the show. She grew somber, however, when asked about Cory Monteith, »

‘Family Guy: Season Thirteen’ DVD Review

6 June 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Seth Green, Mila Kunis | Created by Seth MacFarlane

Family Guy reaches new heights of hilarity in this outrageous collection of 22 episodes, including fan-favourite Into Fat Air, where the Griffins rock Mount Everest, plus the comedy jackpot Roads to Vegas and the milestone 200th episode Yug Ylimaf, in which Brian and Stewie develop a curious case of reverse aging thanks to a time machine foul-up. It’s a complete season of laughs with celebrity guest voices Johnny Depp, Jon Hamm, Sofia Vergara and more!

The thirteenth season of Family Guy – well I say say season 13 but if you’re familiar with the DVD situation here in the UK (some of the earlier seasons, which ran over 13 episodes, were split into two “seasons” by Fox UK), this isn’t actually the thirteenth but actually season 11 -  is very much a hit and miss season, there are a »

‘The Simpsons’ Meets ‘Family Guy’ In First Crossover Images

12 May 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One first hit our screens back in 1989 while the other, sometimes called a ‘rip-off’, appeared only 10 years later. Hard to believe but The Simpson is 25 this year while Family Guy hits the ripe old age of 15. To celebrate such a milestone, the two shows will be delivering a highly publicised cross-over as both shows appear on the Fox Network in the Us. The episode ‘The Simpsons Guy’ will air in September and will see the Griffin family end up in Springfield and engage in wacky adventures with their counterparts. Marge and Lois will unite, Homer and Peter will bond (James Bond), Stewie and Bart will become friends as will Meg and Lisa. No word yet on the fates of Brian and Chris.

Although still extremely popular, neither show is in its prime and it could be argued that this is another desperate ratings grab. Each show has poured out the gimmicks in recent years, »

Showtime’s ‘Shameless’ Switches to Comedy for Emmy Race

25 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime’s “Shameless” is switching sides in the Emmy race this year, submitting in comedy series categories after three years in the drama heat.

The move was Ok’d by Television Academy officials. The John Wells Prods./Warner Bros. TV series starring William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum as the heads of a highly dysfunctional, debauched family of misfits has competed for the past three years a drama.

Shameless,” now in its fourth season, has its ardent fans but it has been mostly overlooked by Emmy voters, with the exception of three consecutive guest actress noms for Joan Cusack. Showtime noted that the show has been considered a dramedy by fans and that some of its key writers — Mike O’Malley, Alex Borstein, Nancy Pimental and Cindy Caponera — come from a comedy background.

The switcheroo will undoubtedly raise eyebrows as a strategic move to better the show’s chances of »
