    I don't mind it, but I put it behind The Simpsons, Futurama and South Park, but in front of American Dad

    I agree. Family Guy is a copy of the Simpsons but at least on the Simpsons they don't make fun of good wholesome, funny tv shows like Gilmore Girls. They also don't feel the need to use terrible language and have characters with no clothes on a regular basis. Fox should dump that show before they get labeled as a bad television station. They really need the viewers so they should be more careful.

    Family guy is definately good. But first South Park, then Futurama, then Family Guy followed by American Dad and Simpsons.

    Family Guys is okay I guess. I'm not liking the newer episodes, and I agree 100% that The Simpsons is MUCH better.

    FAMILY GUY is Awesome! They DO NOT copy the Simpsons, only are inspired and anyways I could tell you a ton of episodes of the Simpsons that came out after the Family Guy that seemed to be influenced from previous Family Guy episodes, so the show influences eachothers. The Family Guy is way funnier, wittier and edgier than any othe comedy out there. (IMO)

    It's bad. They try way to hard. It's like the person in a crowd that is jumping up and down screaming "Hey, look at me!", it just tries too hard to get attention.

    I think it's funny. But The Simpsons are way better. If I had to put my favorite animated comedies in order, this is the order I'd do it in:

    1. The Simpsons
    -
    -
    -
    -
    -
    -
    -
    2. Futurama
    -
    -
    -
    3. Family Guy
    -
    4. American Dad
    5. South Park

    Also, Family Guy does not copy The Simpsons.

    I agree with this one completely.

    Family Guy is an excellent cartoon comedy but may not live up to others like The Simpsons.

    Family guy is good...but this season is definitely lacking. To say it copied the simpsons is ignorant as is complaining that they "use harsh language" and made fun of your favorite show. Suck it up...they make fun of everyone.

    I'd say good. It's not the best, but it is one of the funniest shows, and I don't think they copy The Simpsons.

    I found it dull. Then again, I find reference humor incredibly and almost painfully dull. "Hey, we're making fun of a random show from the eighties!" "Hey, remember this show from the eighties? WE'RE LAUGHING AT IT LOL!!!!!!"

    I find it kind of hard to laugh at repetitions of the same joke, like that obnoxious chicken one.

    Yeah! Even though I love the Simpsons for its earlier days, Family Guy isn't a rip-off from The Simpsons, but a bit of a change! I admit that The Simpsons has been going on for too long.
    I love Family Guy nearly as much as the Simpsons, because I find lots of the characters interesting, such as Brian and Stewie.
    It is a great show and I don't care if people say it's a rip off coz they probably don't understand it anyway!
