SOME FATHER'S DAY TIPS AND WISHES FROM TWO OF FOX'S FAVORITE DADS

In honor of Father's Day this Sunday, June 19, proud dads Peter Griffin from FAMILY GUY and Stan Smith from AMERICAN DAD share some fatherly wisdom and wishes:

PETER GRIFFIN'S FATHER'S DAY WISH LIST:

1) Peace on earth. And a wicked alien war on Mars.

2) The serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to tell the difference between Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman.

3) A Big Mouth Billy Bass. Those things are hilarious!

4) A new liver for my dog, Brian. A really good one, like from Donny Osmond.

5) For Cher to really retire. Because, I don't believe she's gonna do it. I just don't.

STAN SMITH'S FATHERLY WISDOM:

1) Women with stuffed animals on their beds are categorically crazy.

2) Never order fish Even when it's good, it's still just not bad.

3) There's no nice way to say, "I cheated on you because you got fat."

4) People who like jazz really just like the fact that they like jazz.

5) Do not make eye contact with Tom Cruise. His gaze will render you drunk and disoriented.

6) Intentionally leave the toilet seat up every now and again just to show 'em who's boss.

In the "Petarded" episode of FAMILY GUY airing Sunday, June 19 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT), Lois lets Peter win at Trivial Pursuit during a game night among friends. This leads Peter to gloat and think he's a genius, but Brian knows the truth and challenges Peter to prove his intelligence by getting an IQ test. When the test results determine Peter is legally mentally challenged, he uses this to his advantage and gives everyone a headache.

In the "Homeland Insecurity" episode of AMERICAN DAD airing Sunday, June 19 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), Stan hears his rival Chris White wants to become the new deacon of their church, so Stan decides he wants the position as well. Unfortunately for the Smiths, Stan's competitive nature gets the best of him as he tries to win the race to the altar. Meanwhile, Steve takes a class at the church with Betsy (guest voice Molly Shannon), the Whites' daughter, who's a gold-medal gymnast. Steve does back flips for her and their romance helps bring Stan to his senses. Singer Josh Groban also makes a guest voice appearance as the Whiny Parishioner.
