On the last episode of Family Guy, Peter had to go back to third grade in order to get that promotion at work (and the executive toilet privilege that came with it).  Apparently, she was able to land his job without finishing the grade.  In the process, he had to win a spelling bee to sort of fast-track his studies.  Meanwhile, Frank Sinatra, Jr. was in Quahog to perform.  Yet noticing the lack of audience on the bar where he did, Stewie vowed to turn the club into the next hippest thing in town. One appearance from someone was enough to drive the hordes of people away.

Since there have been no new episodes of Family Guy since a couple of weeks back, the leading global publisher of mobile games Glu Mobile recently announced that they've reached an agreement with Fox Mobile Entertainment for its hit animated series The Family Guy.  This comes in the heels of acquiring rights to do a mobile game version for Superman, Batman, The Dark Knight, Hancock, Speed Racer, the Beijing Olympic Games, and sci-fi television series Battlestar Galactica.
Family Guy is available on Amazon Prime.

While the mobile game company have yet to announce the release date for the Family Guy game, the top guns at Glu said they are delighted to bring the infamous humor of Peter, Lois, Stewie, Brian, Meg, and Chris to the mobile arena (although it's still unclear at this point how the quirky family's storyline will translate to game format).

Family Guy is among the most popular animated comedies on television today and we look forward to translating the show's hilarity and excitement within a fun, interactive, and engaging mobile experience,” Glu's Jill Braff added.  For their part, Fox Mobile Entertainment's senior VP Andrew Stalbow said they are confident to partner with Glu considering the latter's massive portfolio.  “We are excited to once again partner with Glu to deliver an authentic experience and a new way for our audience to interact with the Griffin family.”
