Edit
"Family Guy" And Then There Were Fewer (TV Episode 2010) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (3)
The first episode of the series produced in high definition.
Inspired by the Agatha Christie novel "And Then There Were None"
When the talking cat (voiced by Patrick Stewart) says that he is a Professor, it is a reference to Patrick Stewart playing Professor Xavier in the X-Men series.
Syndicated prints cut out the moment when Lois asks Peter "what're they honoring you for?" (same for the Netflix print), Woods & Joe saying "Murder? What're you talking about?"/"You're going to jail for a long time"; Stewie claiming the lack of attention makes obvious that he's wearing shorts; Peter discovering James Woods' secret laundry room; Derek & Julian in the attic with the cat (Patrick Stewart); Derek walking up to the balcony; and Joe intending a detestable actor to play Tom Tucker "in the movie version of this story." Also, all prints including the syndicated and Netflix prints (except DVD) remove the Perry MacFarlane dedication and replace it the updated intro, plus the opening credits are in the general credit font and the "FAMILY GUY presents AND THEN THERE WERE FEWER" is removed as the Griffins leave their home.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Due to the show often ignoring continuity, it would prevent funny and crazy stories. So the producers took the unusual step after the Season 9 premiere of announcing that the events depicted were 100% part of the series canon. Meaning the character deaths featured in this episode would be part of the show's stories going forward. In Season 11, however, James Woods is magically returned to life, with the surreal explanation that he was revived via the life force of a teenage girl because that kind of re-animation is available to celebrities in the Family Guy universe.
Body Count (6): Stephanie, James Woods, Muriel Goldman, Priscilla, Derek Wilcox and Diane Simmons. In season 11, however, James Woods is revealed to have been brought back to life.

When everybody is accusing each other of murder, Diane Simmons accuses Tom Tucker right away. This hints at the end where it's revealed that Diane Simmons is the killer, and her plans were to murder James Woods and frame Tom.
