At the very least, we can all learn a lesson from this: If your husband is involved in a blood feud with a giant chicken, it’s best not to befriend him — especially if he’s a married giant chicken. »

Watch: Seth Green Channels Chris Griffin as Anakin Skywalker in ‘Star Wars’ Spoof

9 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Seth Green has enjoyed a very successful career doing silly voices for animated TV shows and specials, most notably as Chris Griffin on Family Guy and innumerable roles on Robot Chicken. Both animated series have famously poked fun at the epic and expansive Star Wars universe over the years. Seth MacFarlane's creation even enjoyed three very special episodes--"Blue Harvest", "Something, Something, Something, Dark Side" and "It's a Trap!"--that paralleled the three original Star Wars films, with Green's Chris Griffin taking on the role of Luke Skywalker. And while there isn't any word of a … »

Family Guy: Season 15 Ratings

17 October 2017 12:43 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, Family Guy dropped again in the ratings. Thanks to its numbers in the 18-49 demo though, it remained one of the top 10 scripted Fox TV series, so it seems less likely to be cancelled than other shows. Still, the sitcom is aging, and Seth MacFarlane debuted The Orville this fall -- a live-action sci-fi comedy. Could the end possibly be nigh? Will Family Guy be cancelled or renewed for season 16? Stay tuned. A Fox animated comedy, Family Guy centers on Peter Griffin, his family and friends, and their crazy mishaps in the Rhode Island town of Quahog. The voice cast includes MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Seth Green, Mila Kunis, and Mike Henry.Read More… »

Ratings: Ten Days in Valley Stabilizes in Week 3 — Too Little, Too Late?

16 October 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Episode 3 of Ten Days in the Valley delivered 2.6 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating (per finals), holding steady week-to-week — but is it too little, too late?

Fwiw, show boss Tassie Cameron promised at summer TCA that Ten Days‘ 10-episode freshman run tells a complete story, but “bombshells kind of drop all the way through that I think would be very interesting territory for a second season, should we be so lucky.”

Opening ABC’s night, The Toy Box (2.3 mil/0.4) , Afv (4.4 mil/0.9) and Shark Tank (4.6 mil/1.1) were all steady.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole Review

16 October 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I was three years old when the first episode of South Park aired. This means that I was pooping my pants from the moment that creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, began their journey of satirizing popular culture and making endless jokes about people pooping their pants. Now, 21 years later, I poop my pants far less than I did in 1997, and Stone and Parker still churn out, week after week, some of the most cutting-edge comedy on network television. While South Park might be an old show, it’s still a series with fresh and constantly evolving subject matter that challenge what is and isn’t an appropriate for TV.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is right in line with what you might come to expect from Stone and Parker’s twisted minds. Following up 2014’s excellent The Stick of Truth, The Fractured But Whole builds upon almost »

14 October 2017 1:45 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

What's the deal with the Griffins in the 15th season of the Family Guy TV show on Fox? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether the TV show Family Guy is cancelled or renewed for season 16.

‘Game of Thrones’ On-Demand Viewership Dominance Is Finally Broken, By ‘This Is Us’ — Ratings Watch

13 October 2017 4:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Game of Thrones” has remained a powerful force in on-demand viewership, weeks and months after Season 7 ended. But streaks are meant to be broken: According to the most recent weekly report from Xfinity, NBC’s “This Is Us” has taken over as the new most-viewed on-demand series on the service.

Viewers can’t get enough of “Thrones,” which had been the No. 1 show on Xfinity On Demand every week since May 22 — essentially, since the end of the regular TV season. But now that fall TV is officially underway, it’s probably no surprise that audiences are now looking to catch up with the Pearsons of “This Is Us.”

Users are also sampling new series on demand including ABC’s “The Good Doctor,” HBO’s “The Deuce,” Fox’s “The Orville,” and ABC’s “Marvel’s Inhumans.”

‘Big Mouth’ Creator Nick Kroll on Convincing Netflix to Let Him Make a ‘Perverted Wonder Years’ — Turn It On Podcast

12 October 2017 10:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“Big Mouth” creators Nick Kroll (“Kroll Show,” “The League”) and Andrew Goldberg (“Family Guy”) have known each other since the first grade, and became best friends in middle school — right when the hormone monster began its attack.

Well, at least his attack on Goldberg. Kroll was a late bloomer — and it was that awkward puberty that inspired Kroll, Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett to come up with “Big Mouth.” The animated series stars Kroll as Nick and John Mulaney as Andrew, and centers on their friendship as puberty — personified on the show as the hormone monster — puts it through the test.

Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and Jessi Klein also star on the show, which IndieWire TV critic Ben Travers touted as a show that honestly captures the horrors of adolescence: “The show is unafraid to tell the embarrassing truths of pubescence, but knows »

Seth MacFarlane Says His Harvey Weinstein Oscars Jab Came From ‘a Place of Loathing and Anger’

Seth MacFarlane has added some crucial context to a joke he made about now-disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein while preparing to host the 2013 Oscars, saying he made the joke after learning that Weinstein made “attempted advances” on his friend, and noting that the joke came from “a place of loathing and anger.” In a tweet published Wednesday, the “Family Guy” boss recalled, “In 2011, my friend and colleague Jessica Barth, with whom I worked on the Ted films, confided in me regarding her encounter with Harvey Weinstein and his attempted advances. She has since courageously come forward to speak out.” “It »
