+ 1 audio modification
Difference: 53.1 sec + 39 sec due to the final credits
Family Guy is a huge success on FOX. But some modifications need to be made to get permission to air it on FOX because some gags are too rude for TV. Other gags have only been removed to reach the appropiate length for an episode on TV, which means not all the differences were made due to censorship. Nevertheless there are still enough hilarious, outrages gags in it so that fans are gonna have lots of fun with watching the TV Version on FOX. (I'm speaking from experience.)
BTW It airs every sunday evening on FOX. That's really nice because you can also watch the new American Dad episode and new episode of The Cleveland Show. So you've got a terrific triple feature. And when you're watching FOX anyway, you can also watch the latest Simpsons episode. I can really imagine worse evening than watching the latest episodes of the series by Seth MacFarlane plus some new adventures of Homer & Co.
The latest DVD box of Family Guy is available since 06.15.2010 in the US. "Volume 8" ignores the regular counting again and contains the episodes 10 to 16 from season 7 plus episodes 1 to 8 from season 8. To make it more cunfusing, the equivalent UK release is called "Season 9" and was released 01. November 2010. But then again the fans should already be familiar with that confusion. So let's cut it out and talk about the DVD release itself, which contains longer DVD Versions again (with an average of 1 - 2 more minutes of footage per episode). As in the previous seasons, some of the scenes needed to be removed for time reasons, other were just too rude for TV. That's why they either got cut out or modified. The Original TV Version is also on board.
Episode 8x07 ("Jerome Is the New Black") contains three new plot scenes in the DVD Version plus two more sexual references from Jerome which were presumably removed for time reasons.
The DVD Version contains an additional scene with well-known faces as a replacemtn for Cleveland.
Exterior shot of the bar. Then Peter asks: "Okay, so what do you think you can bring to our group, guy who have been in the country almost long enough to not have accents?"
#1: "Well, friend, if you're looking for fun times, we're the males for you."
#2: "You said it to him, Mick. Last night we went to club and it was totally bitches."
#1: "Oh! We had to wait in line for, like, 0.7 hours, but then we made friends with the brown bouncer, and it was cool sailing from there."
After Quagmire ran away, Joe intends to talk to Jerome as well but he can't deal with the fact that Jerome is black.
Joe: "Well, I'm enjoying you, too, Jerome. Welcome to the clan. I mean, I'm glad we got to hang. I mean, you're a good negro. No, I..."
Jerome: "Relax, man. I like you, too."
Joe: "Okay, yeah, that's all I was trying to... Yeah, good evening."
He drives away.
The DVD Version contains the cutaway gag refering to Peter's comment about Black Jeses.
In between a shot of him lying in bed with a chick: "The kingdom of God is inside you. At least it will be in a second."
The TV Version contains a slightly extended shot of Peter with a length of 0.5 sec (no screen).
DVD Version 8.9 sec longer
Jerome's comment is new and longer. The blod-marked words are exclusively in the DVD Version.
"When I find the guy who did it, I'm gonna rip his arms off and do his wife over and over nice and slow in front of him!"
DVD Version 2.4 sec longer
Extended shot of Jeromes trying to stop Lois' difficulties in breathing. They move as if he was banging her and that impression is emphasized by the noises she's making.
Quagmire says: "Thanks for the fucking steak."
The final credits in the TV Version begin during the last scene (Brian has a good cry on Stewie's shoulder). In the DVD Version, the credits start after the last scene, as usual.
