Fox’s plan to use shameless crossovers and gimmicks to maintain the relevance of its animated shows appears to be working, at least in the near-term. 5 minutes of the Family Guy-Simpsons crossover was released at Comic-Con on Friday, and it’s got people…interested.
The event, which is technically the hour-long Family Guy premiere with an appearance from The Simpsons, has been hyped shamelessly by Fox. But the fact that this thing is getting traction, lots of media attention, and, judging by the clip, a few laughs, could mean good things for the two aging shows.
Well, if not “good things,” then at least “not-so-bad things.”
