'Family Guy' Bounces Back Big for FOX
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) "Family Guy" fans put their eyeballs where their DVD money had previously been and turned out in droves to watch the show's return.

The animated series, returning to FOX more than three years after the network last aired an original episode, gathered some of the best ratings in its history Sunday (May 1). About 11.85 million people watched the fourth-season premiere, according to fast national ratings from Nielsen, and a huge number of them fell in the young-adult demographics FOX loves. (Final ratings will be out Tuesday.)

Sunday was a pretty good night in general for the broadcast networks. ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and "Grey's Anatomy" each drew their second-biggest audiences of the season, and the CBS movie "Riding the Bus with My Sister" also performed well.

It was "Family Guy," though, that provided the most eye-catching numbers of the night. The show scored a strong 5.7 rating among adults 18-49 -- second to "Housewives" and more than double FOX's season average (2.5) for the half-hour. It even beat the ABC hit among two of the demographics that helped resurrect "Family Guy," teenagers and men 18-34.

9. The opening of the show was awesome!
when Peter listed all the piece-of-shit shows that fox had aired, then saying "maybe if ALL those show's fail, we'll have another chance."

:rofl:
