Watch an episode or two and you could probably guess that Family Guy's creator Seth MacFarlane is a big fan of show tunes and standards, but even the man's most fervent fans are going to be surprised by this one. Music Is Better Than Words finds Seth delivering a set of songs even your grandmother would cherish, all in front of a full orchestra with high-caliber guests like Norah Jones and Sara Bareilles lending a hand.
