Was it that long ago that 'Family Guy' was dumped by Fox, and it looked like creator Seth MacFarlane had his shot, and that shot was over? That period from 2003-2005 when 'Family Guy' almost went away seems like a lifetime ago, as now MacFarlane has three cartoon shows going on Fox, just had a hit movie with 'Ted,' is about to host the Oscars and has just lined up his next feature film, in which he'll star and direct.

It may have only taken ten years, but it looks like the playful rivalry between 'The Simpsons' and its sort of spiritual successor 'Family Guy' may finally be put to rest. While both FOX series have taken playful shots at one another over the years, the bridge has finally been built as 'Family Guy' creator and voice-artist Seth MacFarlane will lend his voice to an upcoming 'Simpsons' episode! Who might the golden-voiced 'Guy' play, and what does it have to do with 'Downton Abbey?'
A 'Family Guy' movie has been talked about for years now but with the success of 'Ted' at the box office (over $215 million and counting) creator Seth MacFarlane says it's not so much if we're going to get a 'Family Guy' movie but when. And the when looks like it could be soon.
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. But with 200 episodes under their belt, and having survived one cancellation already, is it time for 'Family Guy' to throw in the towel? Creator Seth MacFarlane weighs in.
Meet a most unlikely box office champion: a foul-mouthed teddy bear from Boston. ' Ted' seemed a strange proposition from the get-go, but the little guy with a big heart and extensive vocabulary (courtesy of writer-director-star Seth MacFarlane) made a hefty splash when he burst onto the scene in late-June with a $54 million opening. And now, four months later, he's the King of the R-Rated Comedies.
When are the Oscars this year? It's a good question because you're not going to want to miss this year's Oscar ceremony. Time to start circling the date on your calendar.

Sorry Billy Crystal. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced that 'Family Guy' creator and 'Ted' director Seth MacFarlane will host the 85th Annual Academy Awards on February 24, 2013.
'Saturday Night Live' has returned for an all new season! 'Family Guy' creator and man of many voices Seth MacFarlane hosts with musical guest Frank Ocean, and don't worry, they're totally going to address that Clint Eastwood yelling at an empty chair thing.
Never one to leave a cultural stone unturned, SNL did what everyone else on the internet is doing these days: they made a homage to the massively popular "Gangnam Style" music video from Korean pop star Psy. However, SNL took things one step further: they got Psy himself to join in.
