After facing more delays than a flustered and flaccid lover, Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is finally seeing the light of day. Fans of the series can pick up the newest game in the series today for both Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. It’s no secret that developer Heavy Iron Studios has had issues pushing this one out the door, but here’s to hoping that quality and heapings of multiplayer goodness can make up for the wait.
Gamers can look forward to jumping back into the infamous town of Quahog, taking control of either Stewie or Brian Griffin as they travel through various universes in the Multiverse. There’s also co-op and competitive multiplayer to keep us coming back for more, along with a handful of challenge levels and extra playable characters. But why take it from me?

The Comic-Con 2012 schedule has now been released in full, and barring any major updates, is set. The blessing and curse of being an attendee is deciding which panels/autograph sessions/special events to attend, when they conflict. And they always do.
For you to see for yourself, below are what we are calling the “headliner” panels; those panels that are taking place in Hall H, Ballroom 20, Room 6Bdf, and the just-next-door Hilton Indigo Ballroom, the four major venues for panels. There are descriptions of each panel as well as the show(s) and/or movie(s) they are there to discuss.
See how many conflicts you might have, or how you might arrange time and space to somehow attend these plus spend every day in the vendors’ Exhibit Hall and chasing zombies in the nearby The Walking Dead Escape. By the way, if you figure that out, Please let us know. »

Move over Obama, Romney and the Super Pacs, “Family Guy” knows how to cause a stir with campaign ads. In 2009, “Family Guy” became the second animated series in TV history to be nominated for Best Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards; the first was "The Flintstones" in 1961. In a video chat with Gold Derby, showrunner Steve Callaghan recalled: “We were so thrilled when people took a look at the show and really came at it with an open mind and realised that just because it’s an animated show doesn’t mean that it’s not also a comedy and should be judged by the same standards as some really great shows.” Upon receiving the recognition, “Family Guy” released a series of videos online attacking each of its fellow nominees in one of the most aggressive Emmy campaign moves in history.

Updated: Animated series writers are protesting a decision by the Television Academy to allow NBC’s Community to compete for Emmys in animated categories, arguing that they should be allowed similar cross-genre privileges.
Community made it onto the Emmy nomination ballot in several categories, including best animated program — along with 33 entries from full-time animated shows. The episode, “Digital Estate Planning,” features the cast rendered into 8-bit characters to compete in an old-school-style video game.

We already learned about the Fringe panel from Warner Bros last Thursday, and… that’s it for us with Fox, except for Futurama which is also produced by 20th Century Fox Television. But for those of you who watch shows that we don’t usually cover here, well, here you go:
