The Showtime series is 'Family Guy'-proof as Stewie has decided to give it a very brief and quite meaningless jab in the 'Where's My Emmy' viral.
In a series of rant against its fellow Primetime Emmy Awards nominees, "Family Guy" has decided to exclude "Weeds". For five days in a row last week, the animated show had been pointing out the weaknesses of shows like "The Office", "How I Met Your Mother" and "30 Rock" but it stopped for three days before finally releasing the one for "Weeds".
Kicked off like the rest with the scene of Brian getting out of the shower, the "Weeds" footage sees Stewie asking the dog of which show will get his Emmy vote. When Brian said he is thinking about Showtime's series "Weeds", Stewie twirls his drink and says "Oh f**k this. I'm not doing one with f**king weeds."
The winner of Best Comedy at 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be unveiled on September 20. HBO has two shows under this category with the inclusion of "Entourage" and "Flight of the Conchords".
On another news, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will launch "Family Guy: Something, Something, Something, Darkside" at retail on December 22. It is the second made-for-DVD spin-off to the series after "Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story". "Darkside" is a retelling of The Empire Strikes Back installment of the "Star Wars" franchise where Stewie plays Darth Vader.
