Damn, I'll be out when this airs tonight. Hopefully I can figure out how to get my Tivo box to record it even though I cancelled the service.

My two young sons went WILD when the chicken appeared. My 3 y/o was jumping up and down at the end, yelling: Chicken's still alive!! Chicken's still alive!!

"Renee Zellwegger"
"OK, that did it...."


"What's CPR???"


"Bonnie, haven't you been pregnant for like six years? Are you ever gonna have that baby or what....?"

Boy, this whole season is turning into one big cameo fest: the Tumbler, the woman who was engaged to the man who was a woman who was a horse who was a broom, the chicken again, I forget who else I spotted......

Didn't find this episode as funny as the previous two but I got to give a big for the ending.

I actually thought this was the funniest of the three new episodes so far. Some brilliant moments - especially the ending.

Thought this one was okay, but it had enough nice touches for a

Oddly enough I'm liking American Dad tonight. That chase scene with the Raccoon was excellent. Especially him offering the acorn and sandwich. I can see they are also mixing in some 80's references as well.

The "Dave Chappelle Freak-Out Tent" on American Dad was great. I'd say that was my favorite episode of that show so far. Tonight's Sunday lineup was a lot better than last weeks.

Yeah, it was easily the best of the series to this point, but that's not saying too much. Other than Klaus, I really enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed that episode of American Dad...I laughed harder at it tonight than Family Guy.

Laughed hysterically at Family Guy tonight, the best so far this season, and the first episode that actually seems like it'd fit in just fine with previous seasons.

American Dad was ..eh, watchable, just not very funny. They seem to be trying too damn hard, and the Raccoon chase did nothing for me but remind me of the superior Family Guy chases. (especially after the over-the-top chicken fight redux)

Overall though, Excellent Family Guy, decent American Dad.

I thought the Raccoon chase was hysterical, and better than the chicken fight redux. At least the raccoon chase had a deranged logic behind it, while the chicken fight just seemed like fan service. Don't get me wrong, the chicken fight was still good though.

I'd pretty much echoing here but excellent episode, loved the return of the chicken, hope to see it again sometime down the line... liked American Dad a lot as well.

Where was the black woman at this season? Think I missed that.
