'Family Guy': See Sunday's 'Monty Python' opening credits -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

And now for something completely different than the normal Family Guy intro: The beginning of Sunday’s episode will pay homage to Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Yes, the animated Fox series has hijacked one of the beloved British sketch comedy’s opening credits sequences and given it a Griffin twist. (Family Guy, of course, has a history of reimagining TV show and movie opening credits, including those from The Incredible Hulk, Law & Order, and The Naked Gun.) READ FULL STORY

Fox to air preempted 'Family Guy' episode Sunday

An episode of Family Guy that was scheduled to air last weekend but pulled following the tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn. will air this Sunday, EW has confirmed.

Last weekend, Fox decided to pull the episode titled “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph” in wake of the shooting to avoid running potentially sensitive content.

The same reasoning also led to the preemption of an American Dad episode titled “Minstrel Krampus.” However, that episode, which reportedly contains gun violence, has not been rescheduled.

Fox pulls new episodes of 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad' after shooting

FOX has decided to pull new episodes of Family Guy and American Dad, which were scheduled to air Sunday, in light of yesterday’s tragic shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

It is understood that the network decided not to air the episodes, titled “Jesus, Mary and Joseph!” and “Minstrel Krampus,” to avoid running potentially sensitive content.

Yesterday, Syfy made a similar move when it pulled a new episode of Haven that featured fictitious high school violence.

The episodes of Family Guy and American Dad will be replaced by repeats of “Grumpy Old Man” and “Wheels & The Legman and The Case of Grandpa’s Key,” respectively, according to The Futon Critic.

Seth MacFarlane to guest on 'The Simpsons' as... -- EXCLUSIVE

You may now exclaim, “Holy crap! Woo hoo!”: Seth MacFarlane has recorded a guest spot on The Simpsons.

The Family Guy creator and voice actor (not to mention one of EW’s Entertainers of the Year and the host of the upcoming Oscars) will try to romance Marge in an episode that’s slated to air next fall as the season 25 premiere, EW has learned. The two popular animated shows, of course, share a network, a night, an overweight patriarch that falls well shy of role model, and a rivalry as they’ve playfully jabbed each other on screen over the years. “We wanted to come together in a bipartisan way to make Fox Sunday night rock,” sums up Simpsons executive producer Al Jean of the MacFarlane casting. “This was all very fun.” READ FULL STORY

'Family Guy': Johnny Depp revisits Edward Scissorhands -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The jokes can get pretty random on Family Guy (see: any episode), but this week there will be some high-powered star wattage powering one such gag:  Johnny Depp. The film star makes his debut on the animated comedy by voicing one of his most memorable and sharpest characters from the big screen, Edward Scissorhands.

'Family Guy': Stewie's time machine has reversed the flow of time, vomit in 200th episode- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

When Fox airs the 200th episode of Family Guy on Sunday, you will not only say, “My, how time has flown!” but also “Oh my god, time is flying backward!” In this landmark installment of the animated Fox comedy, titled “Yug Ylimaf,” Brian screws up Stewie’s time machine and reverses the direction of time. Stewie may never be the same. Actually, he may not even be at all. It’s deep.

Things get truly trippy — and gross — when the Griffins wind up reliving a few iconic Family Guy moments in reverse. Only those with strong stomachs may wish to check out this scene from the episode, which revisits a certain ipecac challenge. For those of you who become queasy at the sight and sound of vomit, cover your eyes, ears and mouth, and proceed directly to the bonus video, which involves a most unfortunate diaper-changing incident. Happy 200th! READ FULL STORY

'Family Guy': The Griffins attempt to scale Mt. Everest in the season premiere -- FIRST LOOK

The Griffins are about to peak — or so they hope. In the season 11 premiere of Family Guy, Peter winds up dragging the family to the Himalayas to climb Mt. Everest after learning that Lois’ old boyfriend, Ross Fishman, was taking his family on the same adventure. (Fishman’s uppity wife, by the way, is voiced by… Elizabeth Banks.) As you can imagine, the journey to the top of the Earth doesn’t exactly go as planned. “It’s rough going,” exec producer Mark Hentemann told EW. “They eat a dead kid. And Meg eats a lot.” There are no acts of cannibalism depicted in the trailer for “Into Fat Air,” which airs Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. on Fox, but this minute-and-half preview does involve drinking at high altitudes, a pukecicle, and talk of tampons, so consider yourself warned.

'Saturday Night Live' host Seth MacFarlane breaks his silence on Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson split -- VIDEO

Between the presidential elections and very important pop-culture developments like this, first-time Saturday Night Live host Seth MacFarlane has a lot of ground to cover when he takes the reins during the season premiere of the sketch comedy series this weekend. But one topic the Ted and Family Guy creator likely won’t touch is the heart-wrenching headline-blazing breakup between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

“Who f**ing cares?” MacFarlane told EW, after we gave him a quick primer on the obsession that is “Robsten,” during rehearsals for SNL. “I still have my house, my cat is still alive. I don’t care what happens.” (Make sure to watch the video below to see his complete hilarious reaction).


'Saturday Night Live' announces hosts, musical guests

In a move Family Guy fans will no doubt find freakin’ sweet, Saturday Night Live announced this morning that Seth MacFarlane will host the show’s 38th season premiere on Sept. 15.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt will return to host for the second time on Sept. 22, joined by Mumford & Sons, who will be making their SNL debut.

On Oct. 6, James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, will host, with Muse providing the music.

Warning: Family Guy’s Valentine’s Day episode will be rated ex.

(Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will voice Ida). What, or, should we say, who brings them back into the picture? When our talking canine winds up dateless on Feb. 14, “Stewie gathers scores of Brian’s former girlfriends to get to the bottom of why he’s unsuccessful in love,” exec producer Mark Hentemann tells EW. “The women are not reluctant to point out Brian’s flaws, and have a great time doing so.” READ FULL STORY

Sofia Vergara to guest on 'Family Guy,' 'Cleveland Show' -- EXCLUSIVE

In a cutaway gag featuring Peter as a telenovela lothario, Vergara voices his sassy (and, yes, buxom) lover. And that’s not her only role in the episode; she plays a woman selling roses in a restaurant where Quagmire is “wooing” Peter so that Peter will do him a big favor. READ FULL STORY

'Family Guy': Ryan Reynolds to cameo as the original son of God -- EXCLUSIVE

Many people consider Ryan Reynolds to be God’s gift to man, but this season on Family Guy, he’ll be playing a literal version of that — with a twist. For a cameo role in the animated comedy’s Christmas episode, he will lend his voice to someone who might be described as a precursor to Jesus. Or as Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann explains: “He’s God’s previous attempt at an immaculate conception — his first son that didn’t quite work out.” READ FULL STORY
