In the wacky suburban town of Quahog, Rhode Island, the Griffin family strives to cope with everyday life as they're thrown into one crazy scenario after another.
Theres Peter, the dense father and husband. His wife Lois who keeps the household and family in check, or at least she tries. Their children Chris, Meg, and Stewie. Chris is a heavyset teenager whom may have inherited some of his fathers dim-bulbed genes. Meg is a teenager too. Rejected by her peers and at times by her own family, Meg is an outcast who is desperate to seek attention and affection from someone other than Neil Goldman, her nerdy admirer. Stewie is a brilliant talking baby hell-bent on killing his mother, Lois. And we can't forget about the family dog, Brian. He too can talk.
Together, along with the Griffin's neighbors and Peter's friends Quagmire, Joe, and Cleveland, including sub-characters to join the jamboree, Family Guy is an animated animal house sure to tickle your funny bone down to the core. "He-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he-he!"
"The Paul Reiser Show" is a new single camera comedy from Emmy and Golden Globe nominated comedian-author-producer-actor Paul Reiser ("Mad About You") and writer-producer Jonathan Shapiro ("Life"). The show stars Paul Reiser as... Paul Reiser. It's been a few years since Paul's hit TV series went off the air. Since then, he's been enjoying the quiet life at home with his lovely wife and kids and generally minding his own business. Lately, however, Paul has been thinking that it's time he did something new, something meaningful. As to what that next thing might be, he has no idea. In his quest to figure it out, Paul is helped and hindered by his new "friends." Like most men his age, Paul didn't choose these friends. They're the husbands of his wife's friends, the dads of kids that his boys go to school with. Thrown together by circumstance, Paul and his friends form an unlikely comradeship -- and a horrible basketball team.
