Emmys '07 - Stewie & Brian sings "You can find it on TV"

"You Can Find It on TV" is a musical number opening the 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards sung by Brian and Stewie Griffin. It uses the very same tune as "The FCC Song", which, in turn, uses the same tune as "Volunteer Firemen Picnic," which comes from the Broadway musical Take Me Along with Jackie Gleason.

Lyrics

Stewie:
You know, Brian, we are privileged to live in this particular age of television programming.
Brian:
Really? You think so? Seems to me that nearly all television these days is complete trash.
Stewie:
Yes, quite right. But never before in history have we had such a wide selection of trash.
Brian:
Yeah, I guess you're right.
Stewie:
Of course I'm right! For example...

Notes

  • The 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired on FOX on a Sunday night, and Family Guy was pre-empted.
  • During the song, they call Sanjaya Malakar a little boy from India. While he is of Indian descent, Malakar was actually born in Washington state.
  • The joke about The Sopranos being unpredictable to end comes from the controversial final moment of the series finale.
