Fox announces 'Family Guy' special
Fox has announced details of its upcoming Family Guy special.

The half-hour episode - titled 'Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show' - is scheduled to air November 8 at 8.30pm.

The special will also broadcast without its usual commercials; instead, it will be infiltrated with Microsoft Windows 7-based adverts.

A Fox spokesperson said: "We’re thrilled to be joining forces with Windows 7 on such an exciting, highly collaborative marketing campaign featuring the very unique talents of Seth MacFarlane as he overhauls the old Hollywood tradition of the sponsored variety show by marrying Windows 7 messaging with content."

According to a press release, the episode in question "will highlight the comedy duo’s subversive and unique humour with original animation, live-action performances of Family Guy's most memorable musical numbers, comedy sketches and surprise celebrity guests".
