Fox Announces The Winner by Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane

By January 21, 2007

Follow me on:

Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy and American Dad, brings his first live-action comedy to Fox this spring. The Winner will premiere with two episodes on Sunday, March 4 at 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET, and will air at those times for the following two Sundays, March 11 and March 18. (On Sunday, March 25, neglected step-children King of the Hill and American Dad will return in their respective regular time periods.)

The Winner is a coming-of-age comedy about Glen Abbott (The Daily Show’s Rob Corddry), a 32-year-old still living a sheltered life with his parents when the only girl he’d ever kissed returns to town with her 13-year-old son. The recently divorced Alison (Erinn Hayes) inspires Glen to become a "grown-up" and win her heart. Glen moves through his formative years a mere 20 years later than most, en route to becoming the richest man in Buffalo – and giving hope to late-bloomers everywhere.

I am exicited about this new show. It looks funny. I am a big fan of other shows created by Seth MacFarlane, such as Family Guy. I think we can expect to see the same humor in this show.

I love the Family Guy, so I can only imagine that The Winner will be just as witty, wholly Un-PC and hilarious! Can’t wait!
