The Fox upfronts happened, and a bunch of news poured out about the Simpsons/FG crossover episode that's set to be the season premiere for both next season.

... at least the title is good.
The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

And yet, it falls horribly within Family Guy's predictable "'X' Guy" episode titles.

... you know, you're right.

Maybe they should have called it "The Road to Springfield". That's the kind of fresh new title we need. Or "The Old Man and the Pete".

Oh man, that would've actually been fun, Chris.

If Lisa ends up bashing Meg, I will not be happy.

..I was hoping this wouldn't suck, but good gravy.

Can we have the Futurama/Simpsons crossover now?

I feel terrible for this, but I actually laughed at some of the jokes. The opening was funny (though it went on too long), the beer joke was at least reasonably subtle (though it went on too long), and the

Basically, looks like they're taking the path of least existence here. All family members hang out with their counterpart, a cutaway gag (which Gulliver already did better in his "Futurama Guy" fic), a plagiarismo joke, a

etc.

Someone needs to tell the Family Guy writers that Homer already jumped the Springfield Gorge in the movie. The curse is broken. It is a non-meme.

Heh! Well, jokes going on too long is a bit of a Family Guy tradition.

I have a feeling most of my enjoyment will hinge on how the Lisa/Meg side of the plot runs. And Lois/Marge. I fear for what they might do with their characters. At least the Homer and Peter stuff seems to work pretty well for others?
