Family Guy opening at 2007 Emmys

This is the best part of the 2007 Emmys. Stewie and Brian the dog from the brilliant and funny cartoon Family Guy do a rousing opening number mocking the amount of “trash” that can be found on TV. Clever and very funny lyrics that poke fun at primetime TV shows like Desperate Housewives and The Sopranos.

But in case you need some help with some parts of the lyrics, here they are courtesy of Linorb on YouTube.

You’ve got mega hits like ‘Idol’ where Sanjaya took his bow
Just a little boy from India who made us all say ‘wow’
With a voice that makes you wanna just go out and kill a cow

Here’s the plain situation
A simple declaration
If you want it you can find it on TV

You’ve got ‘Scrubs’ on NBC in season seven and a half
With the antics of the loveable and talented Zach Braff
Who reminds us that a sitcom doesn’t have to make you laugh

You can try to deny it
But we can certify it
If you want it you can find it on TV

And if you start to crave a brand new TV thrill
They’re always brewing up some brand new primetime swill
Like the Geico ‘Caveman’

CBS was once a network that was reverent and clean
But today they’ve got some shows that are remarkably obscene
Like the show about a little boy who lives with Charlie Sheen

Oh, there ain’t nothing to it
You click it on and view it
If you want it you can find it on TV

ABC has got a line-up that’s refreshing and alive
With its hits like “Desperate Housewives” just continuing to thrive
And those women look sensational for being sixty-five

No we won’t oversell ya
We merely wanna tell ya
If you want it you can find it on TV

Now the peacock’s having trouble simply staying in the race
So I hear they’re bringing “Seinfield” back to save a little face
And I hear Isaiah Washington is taking Kramer’s place

Oh, you may not adore it
But, boy, you can’t ignore it
If you want it you can find it on TV

Now “The Sopranos” is a show I’d recommend
Because you never know just how it’s gonna

So to sum up the philosophy on which we’re both agreed
All the garbage on the airwaves is a final thing indeed
‘Cause without it them Americans would have to learn to read

And so up with the curtain
It’s absolutely certain
If you want it you can find it on TV

  1. […] So unless you’ve been living under a rock, the season finale of the gangster TV series The Sopranos ended rather suddenly. But in case you HAVE been living under a rock, see the video above and you’ll see why it left fans with a near heart attack and more conspiracy theories than 911. Many think that Tony got whacked.

    This was a true classic.
