After years of sharing the same block on Fox Sunday nights, 'The Simpsons' and 'Family Guy' are finally doing something that no one ever expected: they're crossing over. To be more specific, an upcoming episode of 'Family Guy' will see Peter Griffin and his family stumble into the town of Springfield, where they encounter the Simpson family.

The madness of Comic-Con 2013 is only days away, and FOX has made its biggest push to promote the 10+ series on display with some seriously collectible new posters. Among the exclusive art on display for FOX's future lineup, we have fresh posters for 'Bones,' 'Family Guy,' 'The Following' and more, along with major new FOX presences like 'Sleepy Hollow' and J.J. Abrams' 'Almost Human!'
Still going strong after 24 seasons, 'The Simpsons' remains as relevant as ever with its ever-growing cavalcade of guest stars, and more recently, a life-size replica of Springfield landmarks at Universal Studios. Also keeping the show's magic alive will be 'Harry Potter' franchise lead Daniel Radcliffe, returning to the program for a second time to lend voice to an episode this fall.
FOX has officially joined the ranks of broadcast networks to release their fall 2013-2014 premiere schedule, leaving ABC the lone holdout. Among the bigger changes on deck for the network, 'The X-Factor' will debut over two nights with a solid four hours, while 'Bones' moves to Fridays in November, and the much buzzed-about '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' has a semi-official premiere date set for May 2014.
Comic-Con 2013 is nearly upon us, as July 17-21 will once again see legions of pop culture fanatics descend on San Diego to celebrate their favorite properties and we’ll be on hand once again to bring you all of the TV and Movie coverage straight from San Diego! From 'The Walking Dead' season 4 to 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and 'Game of Thrones,' we've got your complete Comic-Con TV panel schedule to check out from this year's event.
'The Simpsons' is entering its 25th year of existence, as hard as that is to believe, and to help celebrate, the show's creators will be appearing at San Diego Comic-Con 2013. What's particularly interesting, however, is that they'll evidently be bringing never-before-seen footage from the show directed by none other than Guillermo del Toro. You read that correctly.
Earlier today we were surprised by the announcement that 'How I Met Your Mother' would make its first (and ultimately last) appearance at Comic-Con 2013, but that's only the beginning of what's to come. 20th Century Fox TV has announced their full list and schedule of the 11 different TV panels; among them are new series and fan favorites like 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Futurama'!
It's impressive to consider how far ahead of time we learn of 'The Simpsons'' guest stars, given the lengthy production cycle, but the latest casting from the long-running FOX series is far from a case of 'Arrested Development.' Gob Bluth himself, Will Arnett, will lend his voice to a late 2013 episode of 'The Simpsons,' but what tricks illusions might he play on Homer?
Now that 'Family Guy' creator and lead voice Seth MacFarlane has hopped universes to lend a voice to 'The Simpsons,' let it never be said that the animation titans can't have a friendly back and forth. Former 'Simpsons' writer and late-night legend Conan O'Brien will lend his voice to an upcoming episode of 'Family Guy,' but as whom?
Given the popularity of Universal Studios' many film attractions, from the 'Transformers' rides to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it was only a matter of time before the park corporation dug into a place fans have been longing to go: Springfield! 'The Simpsons' will get its own themed attractions at Universal Studios Florida in the near future, from rides to Duff beer at a real-life Moe's Tavern, so find out when you can visit Springfield IRL inside!
