Sunday Nights Get Even More Animated This January When FOX Airs Encore Episodes of 'Family Guy'

[via press release from FOX]


Will Ferrell, Jimmy Kimmel, Adam West and Jennifer Tilly Provide Guest Voices

In anticipation of FAMILY GUY's return later this season, FOX will air back-to-back encore episodes of the animated comedy on three consecutive Sundays from 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT.

On Sunday, Jan. 16 on the "Fifteen Minutes of Shame" episode at 9:00 PM, Meg (Mila Kunis) decides her family has embarrassed her one too many times and turns the tables on them, exposing them on a talk show. The Griffins create such a sensation on the show, the network executives decide to turn their outrageous life into a reality series. Adam West and Jennifer Tilly make guest voice appearances. At 9:30 PM on the episode "And the Wiener Is�", Peter (Seth MacFarlane) joins a gun club. But when he takes Chris (Seth Green) on a father-son hunting trip, it takes brains, not brawn, to save them. Meanwhile, Meg finds herself the target of the cool kids' wrath at school. Fairuza Balk and Patrick Duffy make guest voice appearances.

On Sunday, Jan. 23 on the "Death is a Bitch" episode at 9:00 PM, Peter runs up a huge bill during a stay in the hospital. In an effort to get out of paying it, Peter claims "deceased" on his insurance forms and prompts Death to pay him a visit. But when Death sprains his ankle chasing Peter, he's forced to recover at the Griffins' house. At 9:30 PM on the "Peter Griffin: Husband, Father ... Brother?" episode, Chris embraces African American culture, so Cleveland (Mike Henry) takes him to an Irish heritage museum to teach him about his own culture and Chris makes quite a discovery. Meanwhile, when the Peterschmidts come to visit, they reveal a family secret and must bribe Peter to keep it quiet.

On Sunday, Jan. 30 on the "Mr. Saturday Knight" episode at 9:00 PM, Peter's boss dies and the Happy-Go-Lucky Toy Factory is destroyed in order to make way for the Happy-Go-Lucky Terminal Disease Institute. Out of a job, Peter decides to follow his lifelong dream of becoming a knight with the traveling Renaissance Fair, but when he's caught in a compromising position with the infamous Black Knight's (guest voice Will Ferrell) wench, he must defend his family's reputation in an old-fashioned duel. Jimmy Kimmel also makes a guest voice appearance. At 9:30 PM on the "Fish Out of Water" episode, Peter decides to become a fisherman. When he takes out a huge loan to buy a boat, he also unwittingly gives up everything he owns as collateral. Faced with losing his home, Peter resorts to desperate measures and hunts down a famous man-eating fish for the reward money. Meanwhile, Lois (Alex Borstein) and Meg hit the beach for Spring Break.
