    I don't see how anyone can like FG anymore because the random jokes are so lame. SounthPark did a great job ripping on FG.

    WHHAAAAAAAAATTTTT????!!!! That was cruel and insensitive.

    Family Guy deserves much better then that.

    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.

    Let's compare, shall we?

    1) Destructive boy: Bart/Stewie
    2) Misunderstood, oft-ignored girl: Lisa/Meg
    3) Brainless father: Homer/Peter
    4) She married HIM?! wife: Marge/Lois
    5) Clueless boy characters: Rodd & Todd/Chris
    6) Moody old guy: Mr Burns/Herbert (the old pervert)

    Copy of "The Simpsons"?
    Naaaahhhhhh!

    First off, those are horrible comparisons, Bart is not like Stewie. Bart is more of a prankster who just likes to prank people while Stewie. Rodd & Todd are nothing like Chris. Rodd & Tod are religous freaks while Chris is just stupid. And Mr. Burns is nothing like Herbert. Mr. Burns is actually an important character that means something to the Simpsons while Herbert is just a pervert that is being used in too many episodes.

    Anyways, I would say that Family Guy has gone downhill ever since the episode "Boys do Cry" aired. The Gag Jokes are starting to get dry and boring, and Gay Stewie has got to go!!!! He was once a great character, but recently, He just bugs the crap out of me because he's just annoying. Trying to find the secret of how Cheerleaders convince people to cheer andkilling his babysitters boyfriend because he's in love with her were great Stewie plots and that's how Stewie should be. However, All the Rupert Fantasys and forcing Brian to say "Over" on a walkie talkie are just stupid and annoying.

    But Family Guy isn't the only show that's failing right now. The Simpsons is also doing horrible and crapping out bad episodes. So, I'd say that Family Guy has to shape up if it wants to stay good.

    It's funny but I don't think it's a great show. I definitely don't watch it as much as I used to.

    Family Guy is really good. Everyone says it is copied from the Simpson's but that is not true. The characters are different and Family Guy is way funnier.

    Family Guy is the second best show on television. It slightly beats Simpsons, Futurama, King of the Hill, and American Dad. We all know South Park sucks mega balls. I mean, some loser once told me FG got beat up by that SP episode, well guess what? FG still has more ratings, the writers of the show gave two sh!ts about that, in fact they call their throwaaway jokes "Manatee jokes", face it, SP didn't get anything on FG. Family Guy is good, and by good, I mean near-perfect. Thank you all FG supporters!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ah, the "ratings argument". Gee, a show that's on network television gets more ratings than one on cable? You're KIDDING!!!

    SP is still the highest rated and watched show on Comedy Central, it's also never been cancelled and it's still just as sharp and witty(if not moreso) than when it premiered.

    Can you say the same for FG?

    Simpsons has gone down the line, i think they are out of fresh ideas, becouse there's plot is toaly unrelated or to many diferent situations wich makes no sence, family is O.K. becouse there's a main plot and many "flashbacks"(mostly not related to thesituation also it's really funny .South park i think takes the top, becouse everything is taken seriousle in copletely ridicilous situation, and south park parodies of all the movies is hilarious. south park rock.

    American dad is also good

    P.S. keep on watching

    I used to really like family guy until recently, i realized that the humor is stupid, theres really nothing funny about it. As for those who are comparing Family guy to the simpsons, that is completely wrong, the simpson are much worse then family guy, their humor is not only stupid its dry.

    Recently, my children have been fascinated with the the "Family Guy". I have a great sense of humor, but the content I think is very inappropriate for young children. I have a 5,10,14, year old and they believe because it is a cartoon it is alright to watch. By the time they do home work and eat dinner at 7:30pm when it's time to unwind the "Family Guy" is on. I think the content of SEX and CONDOMS, are a terrible thing to have on at that hour of the day that is something that should be on for late night TV.
