Am I the only one who finds it hard to believe that Family Guy started in 1999 and is about to start itâ€™s 14th (!!!) season? The show about a dysfunctional Rhode Island family, including a sociopathic baby with matricide on his mind, and a borderline alcoholic talking dog, found a committed audience, and gained a huge cult following on FOX. When the show was cancelled, fan demand led to a comeback and with itâ€™s ridiculous brand of sophomoric, immature, and sexually suggestive humor, Family Guy has found its niche in the cultural zeitgeist of Americana. Like many shows on for as long as itâ€™s been, many of the shows quotable lines are part of the lexicon.. What Bart Simpson did in the early 90s for â€œCowabungaâ€, Family Guy has done for â€œGiggidyâ€ and â€œITâ€™S GONNA RAIN!â€ Show creator and star Seth MacFarlane transitioned to a successful film writer/director (Ted/Ted 2), and even hosted the Academy Awards in 2013.
