Tons of laughs await in Season 11 which celebrates Family Guy’s milestone 200th episode. The season kicks off with the Griffins climbing Mount Everest. Then Lois has a mid-life crisis and Meg crushes on a boy who turns out to be gay -- preferring the company of her brother Chris. Brian and Stewie expose Carter Pewterschmidt and his drug company after learning they developed the cure for cancer but kept it from the public to maximize profits. In the 200th episode, Brian accidentally causes Stewie’s time machine to run afoul, threatening to erase Stewie’s existence. On a visit to Harvard University, Quagmire accidentally hitches with a prostitute and tries to get out of the marriage by pretending he and Peter are lovers. When the Griffins are strapped for cash, Lois gets a job at an adults-only phone line and shenanigans erupt when Peter phones in. Scandal hits Quahog when Mayor West is brought on trial for murder and Peter buys a farm to get away from the city’s rising crime -- becoming a meth dealer! May the odds forever be in Brian and Stewie's favor when they mess with the transporter for their Vegas trip, creating clones of themselves. And just in time for the holidays, it isn’t a Griffin Christmas without Peter telling his own version of the Nativity.
