A Hurricane Hits FAMILY GUY, THE CLEVELAND SHOW and AMERICAN DAD

Seth MacFarlane's trio of cash cow animated shows Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad will all be hit with the same hurricane next May.
Although characters from each of the three sitcoms have crossed over and cameoed in each of the shows, this will be the first time that one force of nature will impact each show on the same night with different effects for each show's respective families.
Mike Henry, who voices Cleveland Brown and is an executive producer for The Cleveland Show commented on the hurricane's impact for his show.
“The hurricane comes at a very inopportune time for the Browns because they’re about to go on a cruise. They decide to have a cruise in the house, but that doesn’t turn out to be so much fun," said Henry.
Executive producer for Family Guy, Steve Callaghan, tells of a more promising storyline for the show that started it all and looks to incorporate some more unique visuals this time around.
“Cabin fever escalates and Brian decides to use the time to take mushrooms. Stewie has to be his coach and walk him through his trip. You’ll see images unlike anything you’ve ever seen on our show," said Callaghan.
Lastly, executive producer Mike Barker says American Dad has the difficult task of wrapping the evening of stormy shows up but tells of what looks like an action packed show to round the night out.
“We have the burden of going last, so we end up flooding the house and turning it upside down. Basically, we’re doing The Poseidon Adventure — with a shark loose in the house,” said Barker.
