We've reached a very important moment in Simpsons history: The premiere of Family Guy. The controversial series has been airing next to The Simpsons on-and-off for the last 20 years starting on Super Bowl Sunday in 1999. And so we take a little pause on our chronological breakdown to explore the creation of Family Guy, how the first episode debuted in such a major spot, and how the pilot episode looks with the eyes of 2019. Listen now with a Pawtucket Patriot Ale!
