Bravo For a Real Treat for "Family Guy" Fans!

Any of you who question my undying love for Bravo need only tune into its longest running show tomorrow night…

On “Inside the Actors Studio,” host James Lipton has interviewed hundreds of actors over the years giving us real insight not only into the actors, but into the art of acting itself. But what makes the show really special is that it knows no network or company boundaries.

So even though the show is on Bravo, which is a part of the NBC Universal family, it is not afraid to showcase a signature show from another network—in this case, FOX—as the cast of “Family Guy” sits down to answer questions, both as themselves and their characters.

And what ensues is a real treat not only for fans of “Family Guy,” but also for people who appreciate real talent.

Unfortunately, a DVD problem kept me from seeing the entire episode, but what I did see was extremely entertaining. Watching the cast perform the “Family Guy” theme song was a real highlight.

There’s no doubt that “Family Guy” is not for everyone, but watching Seth MacFarlane switch back and forth between his numerous creations is pretty awesome—no matter what the words may be.

Bravo to Bravo for giving us this rare look inside some of TV’s most creative minds. You won’t want to miss it…

“Inside the Actors Studio” with the cast of “Family Guy” airs Monday, September 14th at 8 p.m. on Bravo…
