Just in case we weren’t sure that Ted 2 would be as NSFW as the original…
Ted 2 opens on June 26th!
Ted is back and getting married – and they wan to have a baby! That means Ted will have to fight for his civil rights.
I can’t wait to see the red band trailer for this one, but in the meantime, check out the first regular (as if anything about Ted is regular) trailer after the jump. Ted 2 premieres on June 26th.
American Dad is doing so well for TBS that the network has ordered another 22 episodes. So give it up for Stan, Francine, and the rest of the Smith clan – and the CIA! (And misanthropic alien Roger – because not being inclusive is just hurtful!)
For more details, follow the jump.
To promote the upcoming season of all-new episodes of American Dad, TBS is making a pledge to eliminate those annoying bleeps (or, rather, all but one particular bleep). Check out the teaser for the new season of American Dad after the jump.
American Dad returns on October 20th (9/8C).
Seth MacFarlane plays a guy who gets shot and dumped by his girlfriend on the same day in his Western spoof, A Million Ways to Die in the West. I’m not sure why he thought a Western would be the way to go for his second movie – and the first in which he stars – but it turns out to pretty entertaining for about ninety minutes. Too bad it’s 115 minutes long.
EM’s very own LA correspondent Lora Bofill had a chance to catch up with Seth’s MacFarlane’s acting coach Aaron McPherson who talks about “A Million Ways to Die in the West”.
