Windows 7 sponsored episode of Family Guy

I guess everyone is for sale, if the price is right.

Windows 7 sponsored episode of Family Guy

Posted 17 October 2009 - 09:05 PM

On November 8th at 8:30pm, viewers of Fox in the US will watch in horror as the network gives over thirty whole minutes of airtime to a Windows 7-sponsored episode of Family Guy.

Just take a moment to let the horror of that fact settle in your brain. Multi-millionaire Seth MacFarlane – who, by the way, uses a Mac – has decided to sell the soul of his flagship show to Redmond. For money.


** Full Story **

Family guy was funny, for a while. But it's really only funny if you laugh at anything someone tells you is funny, or are able to relate the half hour of 80's jokes that they provide.

I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this topic.

So? This is America. Geez.


edit: Seriously, its his show, why is this bad?


Maybe Ubuntu, Fedora, or Slackware should buy some air time.

Seeing as how I hate Ubuntu, it wouldn't really smooth over the situation. & I don't see how independent release groups would stand any benefit to purchasing ad time on a show.

I don't really have an answer as to why this burns me so, just I guess that family guy was a great show, but has been on the decline a lot in recent years. This just takes the proverbial cake.

& that's what really grinds my gears.

Oh I thought it was a OS thing.

Family Guy has been on the decline, but that's ok because American Dad is better/getting better.
