'Family Guy' Lap Dance Scene Under Attack - Featured

" Family Guy " once again landed itself on hot water when it aired an episode where Carter Pewterschmidt was given a lap dance by a stripper. The Parents Television Council (PTC) is not happy with the situation, arguing that the Fox animation is one of the most-watched programs with children 6 to 11. PTC has filed a complaint to Federal Communications Commission about the Sunday, December 13 episode. "In the episode, loutish Peter takes his father-in-law and friends to a strip club named the Fuzzy Clam. Peter tells a stripper to perform a lap dance on his father-in-law. She bends over and waggles her rear before his face," PTC starts with the description of the particular scene. " 'Do I stick the money right inside of her?' he asks. When Peter replies, 'No, you do not,' his father-in-law asks, 'Why? Have you done that before?' Peter giggles nervously. As the woman briefly rubs her rear against the father-in-law's crotch, he asks, 'When do I hit her?' Peter pours beer down his in-law's throat and orders the stripper to 'give this old bastard the ride of his life'." "The stripper writhes up and down against the father-in-law's body, shakes her breasts in his face, then straddles his lap and thrusts her groin against his. Lois' father grunts in pleasure, then spasms and collapses to the ground as he has a heart attack." In their argument, PTC says, "Apparently Fox must believe that because the program is animated it can air anything it wants on 'Family Guy' no matter how inappropriate or indecent. Fox hides behind satire and animation as an 'excuse' to air the foulest material imaginable, but Fox needs to learn that broadcast decency laws apply to all broadcast programming aired during the time when children are most likely to be watching." FOX chose to give no comment to this. Meanwhile, the episode which becomes the subject of complaint can be found at Source Here

House: Hugh Laurie on 'Family Guy'

No new episode of House until January 25, but if you watch your cartoons, you've probably seen Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) on another show Wednesday, albeit an animated one. Laurie lent his voice on the Family Guy episode "Business Guy" this week, and while he was only on a few scenes and said only a few lines, it was dead on, and his scenes were among the funniest on the episode. "My methods are a little unorthodox, Mr. Griffin," he tells Peter, after throwing a book explicitly titled Rulebook out the window. A little exaggerated and overt, but that's kind of the thing with Family Guy. It's not the first time the Brit made a guest appearance on the show. On the episode, Peter's father-in-law Carter suffered a heart attack and was sent to (I presume) Princeton Plainsboro hospital under the care of House. Carter went into a coma, and the first thing House did was to punch him just to see that he wasn't faking it. House made more appearances throughout the episode, giving Peter advice on running the company and later he was revealed to be the guy in the swamp monster suit. Scooby Doo, anyone? In fact, Laurie wasn't the only popular television character on the cartoon closer. Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, who plays Sheldon and Leonard on CBS' The Big Bang Theory also appear as their characters. Both Family Guy and House are on Fox. Source Here
