We Were Wondering If Maybe You Had Something to Ask Seth MacFarlane

September 21st, 2011 by Ben Collins Editor

Seth MacFarlane and the voices of “American Dad!” will discuss America’s favorite dysfunctional CIA family—and take live questions from Twitter—tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. ET at http://www.hulu.com/live.

For about five years, I’ve wanted to talk to Seth MacFarlane about dogs.

This sounds like a mostly stupid sentence written by a stupid person, but it has been a definitive goal in my life for the past several years. And it’s because of this: There are very few moments on television that I value more than when Brian acts like an actual dog on “Family Guy.”

In fact, these are the moments on television that I value more than this:

1) When Ron Artest comes back on “Dancing with the Stars” next week and systematically punches out each judge for getting eliminated last week. And,
2) When Ron Artest goes onto “Body of Proof” and powerbombs Dana Delany because he is excited that the show is back for a second season.

Since only one of these things is likely to happen, these Brian-as-a-dog moments round out the top two of things I earnestly look forward to on television. By extension, of course, number three is when “American Dad’s” Klaus acts like a run-of-the-mill, Petco-purchased goldfish.

But here’s the thing about that stupid first sentence that I wrote: My half-decade long dream to ask Seth MacFarlane about dogs? That can become a reality today.

The Paley Center for Media has brought together Seth MacFarlane and the cast of “American Dad!” for a live, in-depth chat tonight on www.hulu.com/live at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m PT, and they’ll be taking your live questions on Twitter. Just tweet your question along with the hashtag #hululive anytime before or during the event.

So if you have a question for any of them that’s been itching like a seasonal sweater on a miserable dachshund, now’s the time. Because, otherwise, we’re actually asking him a question about seasonal sweaters on miserable dachshunds.
