    American dad has lesser plots but is generally funnier IMO.

    Really?. I was watching both shows yesterday and didn't even smirk at Family Guy. With American Dad I was laughing at almost every scene

    Tough call. I've seen lotsa Family Guy over the years, but actually only a few eps of American Dad! (watched 1st ep a couple of days ago). The shows feels similar in many ways, although a "spontaneous thought" would be that Family Guy provides with a somewhat more sophisticated humour. My opinion.

    I think that American Dad is by far the best. For me Family Guy is something you watch, if you can't find anything better to do. While I watch American Dad because i really like the show.

    American Dad! is much better, hands down. Family Guy is too full of itself now.

    If only we knew when American Dad is coming back. I think the reason why FOX loves dysfuntcional family sit-coms so much is because they're trying to recapture the magic they had when Married With Children was their number one show when FOX first became a network. Also, trying to recapture the magic when The Simpsons first aired as well. That's why FOX makes a big deal about sit-coms like 'Malcolm in the Middle', 'Grounded For Life', and 'The War the Home'. That's why I believe actual good shows on FOX like Futurama and American Dad get replaced with dysfunctional family sit-com crap like 'Sons of Tucson', and shows like The Simpsons, and Family Guy, and *shudder* Cleveland remain on the air.

    I reckon American Dad is much better than Family Guy, having said that i still think Family Guy is good. However the cutaways in Family Guy tend to make it more irritating though, especially the whole thing with Peter and the Chicken suit guy, that really started to bug me. American Dad i think is better cos it doesn't contain cutaways even if it doesn't have any serious plots to stick to.

    I personally think American Dad is far superior to Family Guy. Still love FG, but Roger and Stan piss all voer any FG character.

    I like American Dad better than Family Guy. I just like the characters more and think they are really funny.

    I like both shows but for me...American Dad! It's less gross, and kind of more interesting.

    Agreed, since Family Guy has been getting really gross in the recent episodes, where as American Dad has better plot development. Deep down Family Guy has lost it's original qualities with other the changes made through the years that is making it less likable.

    american dad is the best its way better than family guy. family guy has stupid time fillers, random jokes, and they reuse jokes until the point that their not even funny american dad doesnt have any of these problems.

    For me, Family Guy wins. It has really lovable characters, even though I hate the bumbling husband cliche, I just adore Stewie and Brian.

    Whereas Roger and Klaus I can really do without. The voice for Klaus isn't even a real german person, and he makes up words that even a real german has never heard about. And it's a rare thing for Roger to be really funny.

    There are a few really classy pieces of dialouge in each series, but Brian usually delivers the best lines, hands down.

    American Dad is better. It's got more character development, they didn't throw away Jeff and Haley's marriage, they make Roger a really hilarious new character in each episode, and it's not entirely language and gross jokes. Brian has to eat Stewie's feces? That's just wrong.
