Tv Season Info

Series 9 opened with the hourlong whodunit "And Then There Were Fewer," in which the family and neighbors get locked in a mansion owned by newly born-again James Woods (as himself) and must solve a murder mystery. Two other standout episodes featured book-related plots. In "Excellence in Broadcasting," Rush Limbaugh (as himself) comes to Quahog for a signing and Brian seizes the occasion to give him the bum's Rush. For "Brian Writes a Bestseller," the literate canine is flustered by his lack of writing success, until Stewie becomes his manager and he sees his latest work climb the charts. Bill Maher appears in a live-action sequence.

Critic Reviews for Family Guy: Season 9

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

While there's a few gems... The episodes often fall foul to cliches, unfunny jokes and pointless, uninteresting storylines.

I very much enjoyed "It's a Trap!" It did Star Wars justice; not only with its music and action sequences, but also in how the events transpired

April 9, 2018 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

While there were certainly times the plot dragged on, the show's style of constant jokes kept us entertained for the full hour. That's impressive for a cartoon.

Family Guy has been wildly inconsistent lately but they can still knock one out of the park every once in awhile.

November 26, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

After a slight slump in Seasons 7 and 8, Family Guy is back on form, toning down the burps 'n' farts humour for a slightly smarter tone.

October 30, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It does manage to keep a pleasant set of chuckles going.
