Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 6").

1 new/extended scene
+ 4 scenes with auditory censorship (each with alternative footage)

Difference: 10.5 sec

Family Guy is a very successful show aired on FOX. Since some jokes are simply too rude to air them on national television, the producers have to censor/cut scenes from time to time. However, they sometimes also cut some jokes away in order to reach the appropiate length for a TV-episode. Therefore, not all the changes that were made are a result of censorship. Nevertheless there still are enough hilarious, outrageous jokes in the show - fans will be in for a good time, weven when 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 as well as the new episode of The Cleveland Show. So you've got a terrific triple feature. If you're watching FOX anyway, you can also watch the latest Simpsons episode. After all, what's better than spent your whole evening laughing your ass of while watching the latest episodes of the series by Seth MacFarlane plus some new adventures of Homer & Co?

All the alterations for the TV Version of the 18th episode of the 5th season- "Meet The Quagmires" - were made due to censorship. Even though the difference in time is relatively short, it is opposed by several scenes with auditory censorship.

When Brian hits on the 80's girl in the bar, the TV Version ends with the girl's boyfriend's question "Are you hitting on my girlfriend?" In the DVD Version, there's an additional reference to 9/11.

Brian: "No, I was just being friendly."
Freund: "I will kick your ass anytime, anywhere."
Brian: "Uh, okay. How about top of the World Trade Center, the morning of September 11th, 2001, 8:00 am."
Freund: "I'll be there. You think I'll forget, but I won't."
He leaves with his girlfriend.

In the DVD Version, Quagmire explains his plans with Lois a little more directly.

Just as for all the above alterations, this one also offers a slightly different animation of the movement of the lips.

No difference in time.
