8 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Griffin family bring Stewie on his first visit to the fire station. In the fire station fire kills one of the men and Chris blows off Peter's head with water. The griffin family are then picked to be a Nielsen family that will be filmed when looking at their TV's. People from TV channels then come to see the Griffin's looking to get their Nielsen looking so that they will be more watched. When the changes are made to the news Peter gives him some more changes. When the Nielsen guy comes to the Peter steals all the boxes in order to have a lot of control over how TV is. He first starts by changing Mad Men by calling up Mad Men. Just when Peter has all the power a mob comes to his house to complain that he ruined TV. Even the doctor will not help Peter because of what he did to TV. Peter is then not allowed to show his face in public as no one wants to be his friend. Peter then after ruining TV gets all the best writers of TV to fix it all. Peter fixes it in the end is forgiven.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Seth MacFarlene)
