Pop-culture in TL-191

A promotional image from the Polish TV series Four Barrel-Men and a Dog (Czterej Pancerni I Pies) which was produced and aired from 1966 to 1970. The show's plot would follow four members of a Polish StuG-III assault gun during the Second Great War on the Eastern Front, commanded by Olgierd Jarosz (played by Roman Wilhelmi) until his death in one of the episodes, in which his replacement would be radio operator/gunner Janek Kos (played by Janusz Gajos). The other members of the crew would be loader Gustaw Jeleń (Franciszek Pieczka), Georgian-born driver Grigorij Saakaszwili (Włodmeirz Press), and the replacement gunner Tomasz Czereśniak (Wiesław Gołas) as well as Kos' own German Sherpard named Fellkugel (German word for furball). The show would gain a massive cult following in Poland as well as in Eastern Europe and even a substantial fanbase in Germany, the Danubian Federation, the Ottoman Empire, and in the United States of America.
 
Churchill, Oswald Mosely, Franklin Roosevelt, Heinz Guderian, and even Hitler all existed in TL191 (Turtledove confirmed Guderian's anti-semitic orderly was Hitler)
 
So what would Family Guy look like iTTL. Keep in mind that Seth McFarlane is from Kent, CT, so that might shape him.
 
I wonder if ITTL there would be "Featherston jokes" and perhaps a movie about two producers in a money laundering scheme who try to make a flop musical named "Springtime for Featherston."
 
He would most likely remain in Germany
Kinda makes ya wonder what kind of movies he would make then? Maybe instead of The Patriot being set in the American Revolution, it's set during the Napoleonic wars or unification wars. And Midway could be set anywhere really, but probably on the European front of the SGW somewhere.

So what would he repeatedly blow up instead of the White House?

The Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, the Reichstag?
 
I have thought about this subject today as I was doing some house cleaning was the idea of what ITTL's version of the Bad Russian Trope?
