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?
The DVD Version of the 6th episode of the 6th season - "Padre de Familia" - is more than 2 minutes longer. Most of the cuts were made due to a transgression of the allowed runtime. Every now and then they also cut out some borderline material which obviously was too much for national television.
The first run of this episode was aired without Seth MacFarlane giving his blessing to it (at this time he participated in a strike of authors). Seth called this decision "a colossal dick move"; surprisingly enought, the DVD Version is not too different from the TV Version.
Time index refers to the TV Version.
Before Diane announces the parade, Tom says something.
"Yes, it was 35 years ago today that James Veteran stood up to city hall and said 'I demand a parade in my name'. And after a heated bidding war with Edward Memorial and Reginald Aprilfools, he got his wish."
After the "John McCain experience" the DVD Version shows an additional scene of Stewie and Brian at the parade.
Stewie goes to the front to have a better view. However, police officer Hobey stops him.
Hobey: "Um... You shouldn't be... Um... You need to... Um, uh..."
His phone rings; "Hold on. Um... Hello? Yeah, I'm telling him."
In return, the TV Version shows a bird's-eye perspective shot of the parade.
DVD Version 18.9 sec longer
After Brian accused Peter of not knowing what 9/11 meant until 2004, the TV Version misses out on the following scene.
Peter: "That's not true, Brian. I remember 9/11."
You see Lois sitting on the couch with tears in her eyes.
Peter goes through the living room, shortly looks at the TV and then prods Lois while saying: "Must have been a woman pilot, huh?"
In return, the TV Version shows an exterior view of the Griffin's house.

Alternative Footage / Auditory Censorship
When Peter says that he got a tattoo, the DVD Version offers a more vulgar version of his sentence.
TV: "...and my nads tattooed to look like launch exhaust."
DVD: "...and my balls tattooed to look like launch exhaust."
No difference in time.
After Meg said that she misses her grandparents, Stewie adds: "So has the morgue."
He makes a disgusted sound and turns to the side; "The morgue, Paul, 'cause she's old."
Paul (who's standing in the corner): "Thats's right, yeah, the morgue!"
During the flashback of Stewie in a strip club, the woman in the DVD Version shows some more naked skin (only shown from behind).
No difference in time.
After Peter drank Carter's blood, the DVD Version shows another one of Peter's tasks. He fills in for Carter's broken video recorder by citing famous lines from TV.
Carter: "My VCR's still broken. Did you remember to watch Survivor?"
Peter: "Yes, sir."
Carter grabs his remote.
Carter: "All right, I wanna see it."
Peter just reels the text off: "Previously on Survivor, Grace won immunity after lying to Kyle about a stomach virus..."
Carter: "I've seen this. Fast forward."
Peter: "Credits, commercials, Ford, Subway, Doritos, Pirates of the Caribbean 4, Orbit gum."
Carter: "Hang on, go back. I want to see that Pirates trailer."
Peter: "In a world where pirates are gay but Orlando Bloom isn't, comes Pirates of the Caribbean 4."
Before Carter slangs Peter, you in the DVD Version see the family looking at spanish DVDs and reading out the titles of the movies.
Brian: "Wow, these DVD's are only 99 cents a piece."
Lois: "Hey, look at some of these Spanish translations of the movie titles. Here's The 40-Year-Old Virgin and in Spanish it's called The No-Sex-Man Comes to Town."
Chris: "And here's Airplane! and in Spanish it's called Incredible Flying Joke Bus."
Brian: "And here's Cheaper By The Dozen and in Spanish it's called Small Family."
In the audio commentary they say that this scene was cut out of the TV Version because otherwise the episode would've been too long.
During the audio commentary, Seth MacFarlan names another pretty weird alteration of a movie title - he talks about the German title of the movie K-9 mit James Belushi [the German title translates to something like My Partner with the Cold Snout].
After peter pointed to the Mexican holiday, he in the DVD Version pulls out a DVD and says: "Would you like to watch My Friend Who Sticks His Penis In A Pie?"
Since he also holds the DVD in his hands in the next shot, the animation of the following 3 seconds is a little different.
DVD Version 3.3 sec longer
In the TV Version you see a shot of Carter watching TV while in the DVD Version you see a different shot of him plus you also see what he's watching. It's another one of these "poop jokes" that FOX doesn't seem to like.
TV announcer: "We now return to Gregory Peck Has Been in That Stall For Over 45 Minutes Now."
You see him sitting on the toilet/his feet and all the time you hear farts and his moans.
When you finally hear a splash sound, he adds: "Ahh! Finally, now I feel well enough to visit my grandchildren."
DVD Version 32.2 sec longer
