Help Save Family Guy

As many of you already know: Family Guy is the absolute funniest show on television. Unfortunately Fox is sticking this fine program to the dreaded Thursday night time slot opposite Friends and Survivor. This could only mean impending cancellation for Family Guy.

Please go to

To help convince Fox to change their f-ed up minds.

I love this show and have from the very first episode. I don't however expect it to be around much longer. FOX has shown zero support for this show, constantly putting it on hiatus and then brining it back in horrible time slots when they have nothing else to put on. The problem is that the show is above the heads of the average TV viewer. I wish FOX would work out a deal with Comedy Central where they could pick it up, where the show actually belongs.

It was officially cancelled at one point, but a letter writing campaign, like this one and an emmy brought it back. The ratings are strong now, but the thursday night time slot wont hold that up.

If you've seen Family guy and love it, tell the jerks at Fox to give it some proper treatment.

I hate to hear that. Family Guy on Wednesdays at 9:30, just before South Park, is perfect scheduling, IMHO.

Bumping this up to continue the effort and as a reminder to watch Family Guy Tonight.
If you've already wrote to Fox, please do so again. Be as annnoying as as you can.

I think this is tonights episode (from aitnitcoolnews.com):

EPISODE 3-9

After Peter's boss, Mr. Weed, bites the big one, the toy factory, Happy Go Lucky Toys, dies with him and Peter looses his job. After several unsucessful attempts, Peter attempts to realize his dream of becoming a jouster at the local renaissance fair. The usual Family Guy humor takes effect here, only slightly dented. Methinks, this episode is the Family Guy debut of the writer.

Stewie

Anyone notice Stewie hasn't been trying to kill Lois as often this season. He's taken more of a background character- picking on the rest of the family.

That was great on last nights episode when he was trying to console Peter while watching the Jousting! Hilarious.
Then when he was at the funeral "Do her, do her, do her...."
