Kevin Beggs' Watchlist: What Does He Love About Family Guy?

Kevin Beggs, the president of Lionsgate's television group, may have helped introduce the world to some of the most culturally literate shows on TV, but when it's time for him to name his favorites, he recalls with glee an episode of Family Guy and utters just four words: "Bird Is the Word".

The most fun part of launching TVGuide.com's new mobile app is getting to have unexpected, enlightening conversations about TV with the incredibly smart, talented people who make it. That's why we're thrilled that Beggs, aka the man who has ushered shows like Mad Men, Weeds and Nurse Jackie into the cultural consciousness, has agreed to curate a channel on the app for us.  And why it's such a kick to find out that he's a Family Guy fan. "Seth MacFarlane has turned digression into an artform," he says. Beggs' next project, Nashville, premieres on ABC on Oct. 10 at 10/9c. (Full disclosure: TVGuide.com is owned by a partnership of Lionsgate and JP Morgan's One Equity Partners.)

But let's get down to brass tacks. Can he tell us all kinds of incriminating stories from behind the scenes of Mad Men? "There are many, but I would be killed if I divulged any of them," he jokes.

Here's Beggs' full list. Watch his video introduction to his watchlist below.

Keck's Exclusives: Showtime's Episodes Covers a Taboo Topic

The February 6 episode of Showtime's Episodes makes jokes about an issue that television comedy has long avoided: rape. The storyline finds Matt LeBlanc (playing an overly clueless version of himself) at a rape prevention benefit, struggling to uncork a bottle of wine — oblivious to the survivor onstage relating the story of her brutal attack. Wickedly funny or brazenly insensitive?
