In a brilliant marketing movie, FOX has given Stewie (of FAMILY GUY Fame) his own talk show. UP LATE, a ten minute animated talk show parody starring Stewie, Brian and celebrity guest Rob Corddry goes live on MySpace this Sunday evening at 8PM.
UP LATE will begin streaming Sunday, February 25 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on MySpace.com and remain on the portal indefinitely. Sneak preview clips are currently posted on MySpace, YouTube and other video sites. Remarked Ricky Blitt, former “Family Guy” writer and creator of “The Winner”
While all of America awaits with baited breath to see if Ryan Gosling wins an Oscar, I hope they’ll turn on their computers and watch “Up Late” to see Stewie and Brian do skits, interviews, and a topical monologue about Leah Remini’s genitalia. Yes, “Up Late’ is a classy tribute to late night talk shows and a love letter to my own parents, though even I’m not sure what the hell that means.
