Show Summary

Family Guy is an American animated comedy television series created by Seth MacFarlane which centres on the Griffins, a dysfunctional family consisting of parents Peter and Lois; their children Meg, Chris and Stewie; and their anthropomorphic pet dog Brian.

The show uses frequent cutaway gags, often in the form of tangential vignettes which parody American culture.

The series premiered in the USA on Fox on 31 January, 1999. Shortly after the third season aired in 2001, Fox cancelled the series. However, favourable DVD sales and high ratings for syndicated reruns convinced the network to renew the show in 2004. It has aired ever since.

Family Guy premiered in South Africa on TopTV's Fox Entertainment channel on Friday 4 June 2010, at 20h35. It was moved to TopTV's Fox FX channel from Season 8 onwards. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 7 premiered on Fox Entertainment on Tuesday 16 August 2011, at 22h50. New episodes broadcast daily, on weekdays. There are 16 episodes in the seventh season.


The series follows the adventures of lovable oaf Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane) and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders.

Lois (Alex Borstein) is Peter's loving wife, a former Miss Teen Rhode Island who rules the roost but is one step away from a nervous breakdown.

Then there are their kids: frumpy, 16-year-old Meg (Mila Kunis), the family's punching bag; 13-year-old Chris (Seth Green), a kid who doesn't understand girls, much less the evil monkey hiding in his closet; and 1-year-old Stewie (MacFarlane), a diabolically clever baby whose heterosexuality is hanging by a thread.

Rounding out the Griffin household is Brian (MacFarlane), the family dog, a member of MENSA with a penchant for dry martinis and dumb blondes.
