The voice cast includes Kristen Wiig (SNL), Maya Rudolph (SNL), Jillian Bell and Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project).

Jon Benjamin as Bob Belcher, John Roberts as Linda, Dan Mintz as Tina, Eugene Mirman as Gene and Kristen Schaal as Louise, as well as Megan Mullally as Linda's sister, Gayle; Jenny Slate as Tammy Larsen; and Sarah and Laura Silverman as the Pesto Twins.

And last but not least, the cult favorite Family Guy returns for a 17th season at 8:30. The show, which is set in Quahog, R.I., chronicles the adventures of the Griffin family.
