    you can't say that until you watch it. You have to at least give it a chance.

    Sorry about that

    I really just laugh more i like the baby in fg but thats about it, the sister and brother are not funny, again i watch a show for what it is a comedy and i rarely laugh when fg is on,

    The father peter i dont find funny either, and it is not for lack of trying if there is an episode i havent watched i watch it. but i simply dont laugh it is not because the jokes are lost on me i think , well some of them are when they get to rude i dont laugh

    In american dad i really like the entire family, especially stan i like that he works for the cia and, the sister reminds me of lisa dont know if thats a shared opinion and the brother seems level headed.

    I havent watched that many episodes but i always watch them if i can since we mostly get the simpsons, suppose i could get it on dvd.

    It depends, if you like funny jokes then Family Guy is better, if you like an interesting story then American Dad is better.

    Like I said before, Both shows are Awesome, but Family Guy is better! It is also funnier.

    Maybe not but I think that it has more complex storylines than Family Guy.

    American Dad. Has to be. Family Guy was pretty good back in the day, prior to it being cancelled...but when Family Guy came back it just started losing momentum. I mean, it's still funny, but it doesn't have what it used to have during its first three seasons. I know a lot of people love the randomness of Family Guy, but I really think they just use the cut aways too often. As a writer, it just seems lazy to me. No matter what the scene, no matter what's going on, Peter can just say something completely off topic and suddenly we're cutting away to the punch line of some joke. Yeah, sometimes its funny, but it's too easy! It's shorthand! It's not writing a television episode. It's thinking up a bunch of jokes and putting them in a row. Plus that freaking chicken fought Peter for SEVEN minutes last time. A 22 minute episode, where seven minutes of it was Peter fighting a chicken. So basically they just had material for a fifteen minute episode so they decided to throw seven minutes of filler in there. American Dad on the other hand. I've yet to see something on American Dad that's felt like filler so they can finish the episode. Plus, the writing is just awesome. Witty and refreshing. It's like Futurama. Yeah, Futurama only lasted four seasons, but if I've got to pick between The Simpsons and Futurama...I've got to pick Futurama! Because no episode of Futurama sucked and plenty of Simpsons episodes have. Same with Family Guy and American Dad. Maybe all the good writer's went over to American Dad, I don't know. But I really dig American Dad. It's hilarious.
    Yeah... you hit it word perfect right down to the 7 minutes of Peter vs the Chicken. Seriously I have been bad mounting FG for a while now and was starting to feel bad thinking maybe I was being unfair, so I turned to FG and right out the box Peter vs the Chicken. I turn away for several minutes and when I turn back he is still fighting the damn chicken. When you think about how much time writers on other shows put into writing 22 minutes worth of stuff the idea that Family Guy just writes 2 or 3 minutes worth of material and then just uses "Remember the time..." as an opening to fill the rest of the show with filler. What annoys me the most is the 2 or 3 minutes they write is usually very good, I would watch FG still if they actually wrote more, but I just can't sit through the mindless filler.

    well the chicken fight needs some writing also... like you know those 7 minutes ur crying about? that took writing. its not just them standing in one place punching eachother over and over. they actually go into different places and use weapons and make a great last level on the family guy video game. also, u need to shadup. btw, HE DOESN'T LIKE YOU. I DONT LIKE YOU EATHER. YOU DONT EVEN KNOW ME. I GUESS THATS FAIR. BEAT THAT MOTHER TRUCKER

    I say American Dad is better. Why? Better Writing, Better Characters, and its a lot funnier and smarter while Family Guy is now nothing but cutaways and jokes about the Eighties.

    Don't say i'm wrong about this because it's my personal opinion.

    American Dad .. I used to love the hell out of Family guy but it seems its getting a little old. Some of the episodes are still funny but I feel like I'm watching the same thing over and over.

    Although Roger sometimes is annoying to me, I'd like to see a episode where both their worlds collide ... other than that Stewie kills Lois episode.

    Are there any other reasons why you like American Dad better than Family Guy? I am just curious.

    better writing and way better jokes. American Dads co creators are Seth Macarlane, Mike Barker & Matt Weitzman. Mike & Matt where writers of Family Guy seasons 1-3. David Zukerman "Executive Producer" now on American Dad was really huge on Family Guy on its first 3 seasons.

    With no stupid musicals, and taste-wasting unfunny flashbacks, you'll bet I'll pick American Dad.
