This Sunday, 'Family Guy' will reach the honor esteemed for any TV series, let alone animation, debuting its 200th episode with "Yug Ylimaf." The outing will see Stewie Griffin's time machine going haywire, reversing the flow of time itself and winding back through 'Family Guy's' critically-acclaimed, and often controversial history.

What better way to give them this than through the first promos for the newest season?
Sure, we're all a little tepid at the prospect of a new season of 'Saturday Night Live' that lacks Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig, Abby Elliott, and potentially even Jason Sudeikis as well, but the show will always go on, no? Seth MacFarlane has been announced to host the premiere of the long-running sketch comedy's thirty-eighth season, but who will join him on the stage? And what other stars will fall from the sky to deliver a premium rush in the ensuing weeks?
