BRIDGEPORT - Some people in Bridgeport are not laughing at last night's episode of the Fox show "Family Guy."

The hit series made a joke at the expense of the Park City, saying Bridgeport is the world leader in abandoned buildings, shattered glass and boarded-up windows.

Mayor Bill Finch says he doesn't know why the show's writers decided to pick on Bridgeport, but that instead of going after them, he's going to try to use the clip to the city's advantage.

Some local residents have complained about the joke, but others say they found it funny.
