‘Family Guy’ Episode Guide (April 17): Lois Joins the U.S. Postal Service

“Take A Letter” (04/17/16) – To pay for Stewie’s private school, Lois becomes a postal worker. She finds a letter from Peter that was never sent to his old fling, Gretchen (guest voice Kathryn Hahn), dated a week before their marriage.

When Gretchen tries to come between Lois and Peter, Lois has a plan of her own in an all-new episode of “Family Guy” airing Sunday, April 17 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Kathryn Hahn guest voices in this episode as Gretchen.

“Family Guy” has racked up numerous awards, including an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, only the second animated series in television history to be honored with such a distinction. The series’ creator and lead voice actor, Seth MacFarlane (voice of “Brian Griffin,” “Peter Griffin” and “Stewie Griffin”), recently received a 2015 Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance, in addition to his 2014 nomination in the same category.

The show follows Peter Griffin (MacFarlane), the endearingly ignorant dad, and his hilariously offbeat family of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, Ri. Lois (Alex Borstein) is Peter’s wife, a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her family’s antics. Then there are their kids: 18-year-old Meg (Mila Kunis) is an outcast at school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old Chris (Seth Green) is a socially awkward teen who doesn’t have a clue about the opposite sex; and one-year-old Stewie (MacFarlane) is a diabolically clever baby whose burgeoning sexuality is very much a work in progress. Rounding out the Griffin household is Brian (MacFarlane), the family dog and a ladies’ man who is one step away from AA.

In the upcoming season, Stewie snags a starring role in a national commercial and Peter and Lois become crazy, show-biz parents; Chris develops into a star baseball pitcher; Quagmire (MacFarlane) searches for new work and becomes a gigolo; and Peter, Cleveland (Mike Henry), Joe (Patrick Warburton) and Quagmire head to Korea. Guest voices this season include John Mellencamp, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Kyle Chandler, Glenn Close, Ashton Kutcher, Frank Sinatra Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Margaret Cho, Ed O’Neill, Kate McKinnon, Joe Buck and Jeff Garlin.

“Family Guy” is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane is creator/executive producer. Rich Appel and Steve Callaghan serve as executive producers/showrunners, while Danny Smith and Kara Vallow are executive producers.
