Quotes

Peter Griffin: Okay. Mark Burnett, you did "Survivor" and "The Apprentice". Can you give me a reality show where people do horrible, unforgiving things to each other for embarrassingly small sums of money?
Mark Burnett: I got some ideas. Here's a nickel. Pull down your pants.
[Peter pulls down his pants]
Mark Burnett: There's a show.
Peter Griffin: Ah-ha! Go!

The One Where Peter Wants To Take Over TV...
26 January 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so funny. I laugh every time I see this. I didn't know what a Nielsen family was, until I watched this episode. It's where I got all of my information from.

In this episode, the Griffin Family become a Nielsen Family. Which basically means they have a box connected to their TV, so networks can see what an average family view. But Peter goes and gets hundreds of boxes and basically controls the way TV works. And no one is happy, except for Peter. Peter convinces networks to make ridiculous changes to popular shows, which continues to make everyone mad.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
