‘Family Guy’ Episode Guide (Oct. 1): Peter Embarks on an Emmys ‘For Your Consideration’ Campaign

“Emmy-Winning Episode” Season 15 Premiere (10/01/17) – Tired of not winning an Emmy, Peter embarks on his own For Your Consideration campaign for “Family Guy” by making the show more like Emmy-winning shows – and no category is off limits.

Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Louis C.K., Bill Maher, Christina Pickles, and the late Adam West guest-voice in the season 15 premiere episode of “Family Guy” airing Sunday, Oct. 1 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

This episode’s guest voice cast includes Sofia Vergara as herself; Ty Burrell as himself, Julie Bowen as herself; Louis C.K. as himself; Christina Pickles as Left Eyeball; and Adam West as Mayor West.

Entering its 15th season, “Family Guy” continues to entertain its die-hard fan base with razor-sharp humor, spot-on parodies, spectacular animation and orchestra-backed original music. Since its debut, the series has reached cult status among fans, and its breakout star, a talking baby, has become one of the greatest TV characters of all time.

“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 won the 2017 Emmy Award for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance. He also won the 2016 Emmy Award in the same category, and was nominated from 2013 to 2015.

Guest voices this season include Sir Ian McKellen, Ryan Reynolds, Amanda Seyfried, Kristen Bell, Kathleen Turner, Eric Dane and Danny Trejo. The series also will celebrate its 300th episode.
