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.
In the 11th episode of season 4, "Peter's Got Woods", a little insult (the evil F-Word) by James Woods himself hasn't just been beeped but cut out instead. The DVD Version instead is longer. As usual, one can choose between the TV Version and the DVD Version on the DVD. At least that's the case on the US DVDs. The UK releases only contain the DVD Versions but not the TV Versions.
Time index refers to the TV Version.
The following things are worth being mentioned about the episodes 4x09 ("Breaking Out Is Hard To Do") and 4x10 ("Model Misbehavior").
4x09: In the audio commentary, the fact that a short scene had to be removed for its broadcast on FOX is being mentioned. The scene contains a controversial version of the CBS logo.
4x10: Here we have an audio modification. But there was no real cut, that's why there's no comparison for that episode.
When Stewie yells at Brian at the office after he asked him about the made up staff, the TV Version has been censored. In the DVD Version, he is allowed to swear without restrictions or anything: "Fuck you, that's who works here!"
There is no longer / uncensored DVD Version of the episodes 4x07 and 4x08.
In the TV Version, James Woods' rant ends with the question "Where does James Woods fit into the fun?".
Only in the DVD Version, he adds: "You fucker!"
