Stewie Griffin Hosts Latenight Talkshow on MySpace
Family Guy‘s homicidal toddler Stewie Griffin will moonlight online as a latenight talkshow host this Sunday, reports Variety.
Stewie and sidekick Brian — the show’s martini-imbibing canine — are the stars of “Up Late With Stewie & Brian,” a 10-minute flash-animated talkshow parody that will launch on MySpace Feb. 25 at 8 p.m., opposite the Oscars.
While parodying talkshow and awards ceremony conventions, the primary purpose of the show is promoting Fox’s new live-action comedy The Winner, a creation of former Family Guy writer Ricky Blitt and Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane.
The Winner will air for three weeks starting March 4 at 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., with Family Guy sandwiched in between.
