What’s This TV Show About?
An animated comedy airing on the FOX television network, Family Guy follows stereotypical sitcom dad Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane). Overweight and a bit dim, Peter is close to his kids, despite being a heavy drinker. A piano teacher, wife Lois (Alex Borstein) is a stay-at-home mother and usually the impatient voice of reason. An outcast at school, 18-year-old Meg (Mila Kunis) is the family’s preferred dumping ground. Overweight like his dad, 13-year-old Chris (Seth Green) is socially awkward and clueless, especially when it comes to women. The baby of the family, one-year-old Stewie (MacFarlane) is diabolically clever, if sexually confused. Rounding out the Griffin family is their dog Brian (MacFarlane). A ladies’ man who is particularly devoted to Lois, Brian is about one step away from AA.

Last year, Family Guy registered a sizable drop in the ratings, yet still managed a renewal from FOX. This season, the animated situation comedy is, so far, holding its own. Despite its longevity, Family Guy is still a solid performer among FOX TV series and makes oodles of money in syndication. As long as MacFarlane and crew are game to continue, expect FOX to renew Family Guy for season 15.
