I'm actually quite looking forward to this, despite the fact that both shows are a shadow of their former selves.

This will be brilliant or terrible but I will watch it anyway
Hopefully not too much poor little Lisa crap, maybe Stewie will kill her and use her for parts

Interesting, i'll certainly look out for this. I actually think Family Guy has been on form somewhat for the past few seasons at US Pace. Still get the odd stinker here and there, but on the whole, they've been good.

I never know when Sky show any new Simpsons anyway so I haven't really watched any new ones in a while.

Brilliant

I thought the Hurricane crossover they did with American Dad and Cleveland was good. Plus Family guy is really back on for me as a fan, especially the last two seasons, as i felt it went downhill after season 6.

Still love The Simpsons, i still like Family Guy, just not the same way i used to. For me the characters of Family Guy are almost unrecognisable from the character from seasons 1-5.

Anyway i like this idea, it should be funny

is this not going to really limit what the family guy characters can do in this episode, matt groening wouldn't dare have a majority of the jokes family guy has done in a simpson episode.

i can see the all so tame simpsons product turning this into an extremely watered down family guy episode.

Well since it is a Family Guy episode then they should be able to what ever they want. Even if it is watered down i think it will be good, it may make the writers come up with some good ideas for a change instead of just throwing in a few offensive jokes just for the hell of it.

The Simpsons. A show I can quote verbatim from its first ten years. A show I haven't even bothered to watch in ten years. It's incredible how much its stock has fallen.

If this was a Simpsons episode it might be borderline interesting. Rubbish, but interesting.
As it's a Family Guy episode it will just be rubbish and uninteresting.

Although the interaction between Maggie and Stewie could be interesting ..

They should take Joe with them and teach Wiggum a thing or two!

Yes. I am sick of Lisa and her pity story. Lisa Goes GaGa would probably have to be the worst episode of the Simpsons in the last few years. Other than that, I still love The Simpsons now and loved when Seth MacFarlane guest starred on this season's finale, which was apparently supposed to be part of next season.

We all know Stewie is a badass, but Maggie is something else. She can outsmart him in more ways than possible.

Definitely!!! I somehow think Lenny and Carl might pop in the picture, whenever Quagmire is mentioned.

I would love to see a scene with Brian and Santa's Little helper and someone remarks "well how come your dog doesn't talk, but ours does"

And i wonder if one of the simpsons will remark "so is it me, or is that baby talking", we all know that only Brian seems to be the only one who can hear Stewie talking.

Can't say it won't happen, but it's possible. As for Stewie talking, I think everyone understands him, only Brian takes him seriously. The others sort of take it as if it was a little kid swearing or saying something ridiculous.

well according to Love Blactually episode it works like thus...

(Stewie wants to talk to Loretta, but Brian won't let him)
Stewie: Just let me do all the talking.
Brian: No, I think I can communicate with her better. She's only going to get the gist of what you're saying.
Stewie: Really? Isn't she one of those people outside the family who can understand me?
Brian: No, I think because of Cleveland she's close enough to the main cast that it might be a little weird.
Stewie: Really?
Camera man: We're filming!
Stewie: Okay, okay! Alright, alright! Sorry, sorry. (to Brian) Ring the doorbell.

I doubt they'll be much violence at all. I'm guessing this will be a very toned down episode.

I dunno The Simpsons can do violence (Homer strangling Bart) and they have some darker moments still even outside the Halloween episodes and couch gags (Sherry Bobbins being sucked into the plane)
Lisa being disected is setting my hopes too high though

See this is something that has always annoyed me about people that bash the Simpsons, they say they haven't bothered to watch in 10 years......................so how can they say if it's rubbish or not ?

Hopefully Fox who own both in USA will give this episode to FOX in UK or Sky One or Sky Atlantic.

Wish they were both on 1 channel!

With American Dad (I don't watch but appreciate lots do)

Did Cleveland Show get cancelled?

I remember back in its glory days The Simpsons mocked the fact that it was doing a crossover with The Critic:
TV: Coming up: The Flinstones meet The Jetsons
Bart: Uh-oh, I smell another cheap cartoon crossover.

Granted The Critic episode took the piss out of itself, but it wasnt one of the best imo, and now theyre doing... a cheap cartoon crossover.
How the mighty have fallen
