Family Guy is an animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane in early 1999. The series revolves around Peter Griffin and his family, Lois, his wife, Meg, Chris, and Stewie, their children, and their talking dog, Brian. They are set in the fictional city of Quahog in Rhode Island. Much of the humor in the show is in the form of cutaway gags that often sarcastically criticize American culture. The family was conceived by MacFarlane after developing two animated films, The Life of Larry and Larry & Steve.
Automatically, many viewers started talking about the show. In fact, shortly after the third season of Family Guy aired in 2001, Fox canceled the series. However, favorable DVD sales and high ratings for syndicated reruns on Adult Swim convinced the network to renew the show in 2004.
Family Guy has been nominated for 12 Primetime Emmy Awards and 11 Annie Awards, and has won three of each. In 2009, it was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. In the Urban Dictoinary, the meaning of Family Guy was added, stating _
A great cartoon cancelled by FOX. The main character, Peter, was even dumber than dare i say it, HOMER SIMPSON. And their evil baby Stewie was so badass.
