‘Family Guy’ Episode Guide (Feb. 19): The Guys Form a String Quartet

“The Finer Strings” (02/19/17) – The guys decide to form a string quartet, but Peter doesn’t make the cut. Meanwhile, Brian is forced to be Carter’s seeing eye dog and enjoys the life of luxury a little too much in an all-new episode of “Family Guy” airing Sunday, Feb. 19 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

“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.

“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.
