From the mind of Seth McFarlane, this show follows the adventures of lovable oaf Peter Griffin and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders. Lois 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, the family’s punching bag; 13-year-old Chris, a kid who can’t make sense of the opposite sex, much less the evil monkey hiding in his closet; and 1-year-old Stewie, a diabolically clever baby whose heterosexuality is hanging by a thread. Rounding out the Griffin household is Brian, the family dog, a member of Mensa with a penchant for dry martinis and dumb blondes. This animated hit comes from Twentieth Century Fox Television.
