When Game of Thrones returns for its fourth season Sunday night, fans will get to enjoy the latest adventures in the reign of King Joffrey Baratheon, a blond tyrant who rules Westeros with an ironfisted combination of petulance and sadism.

Maybe they can have a playdate – just leave the crossbows at home.

Seth MacFarlane and Bill Maher Sing to Jay Leno About Rivalry with Letterman: Watch Now

Originally posted 01/30/2014 11:15AM

When Seth MacFarlane and Bill Maher drop by your show to sing to you, you know you're not going to get a sentimental rendition of "The Best Is Yet to Come."

The pair said their goodbyes to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show Wednesday in swinging fashion, serenading the departing host with a song that thanked Leno for "the memories you gave," but mostly for "your rivalry with Dave [Letterman]" and "the beating that you gave."

The pair aren't referring to some previously hidden parking-lot dust-up between the two iconic late-night hosts, but rather, as Maher sings, the fact that "you crushed him in the ratings, and you'll take that to your grave!"

A talking dog with literary ambitions and a love of martinis, Brian seemed to be too good a character to disappear for good, and more than 128,000 Family Guy fans signed a petition advocating his return.

Brian of Family Guy: How Dead Is He?

Originally posted 11/26/2013 11:40AM

Hold on to your martinis, bereaved Family Guy fans. Love for Brian had fans hoping it was a ratings stunt, and now a new website has them wondering: Is Brian really dead?

A site "affiliated" with FOX and Seth MacFarlane's popular crass cartoon sitcom has cropped up – www.briansannouncement.com – and promises "a special announcement from Brian" with a countdown clock that shows the big reveal will happen on Dec. 6 at noon ET.

The sparse home page also features a blue sedan driving into the Griffin's mythical hometown of Quahog, Rhode Island, where the sign entices visitors to "come taste our clam."

Fan fallout has been swift, but we'd like to stay above the fray and instead remember Brian as he was: Witty, occasionally soused, and a devoted Prius driver.
