Quotes

[the "Cal Johnson" theme song]
Seth MacFarlane: There was a man who shot the man who was the man who shot the man, Cal Johnson, Cal Johnson. He wore a hat, his favorite hat, he loved that hat, he hated hats, Cal Johnson, Cal Johnson. He was a dad to zero kids and yet he fathered five. He got shot dead a year ago and yet he's still alive.

Unfunny and offensive, but mostly unfunny.
8 November 2009 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Family Guy, and I enjoy the edgy humor and parodies. It doesn't feel so funny when a live action program tries to do the same thing. Chuckling about the Holocaust and imitating how deaf people sound when they talk isn't funny and kinda makes my skin crawl. Amazingly unfunny for someone as funny as Seth McFarlane. It's like he was trying to rack up as many insulted groups as he could in 30 minutes. What was he thinking when he put together this show? If his point was to make it a 30 minute uncomfortable Family Guy style skit, he pulled it off. Another feather in the cap of Fox, was the network so desperate for a program in this time slot that it needed to put this slapped together train wreck on air?
