    Does anybody watch Family Guy? It's even better than The Simpsons since it has so many more cultural references. Here are some examples:

    Family guy and the simpsons as well as american dad, all have their own niche.

    FG: social culture mockery
    simpsons: Literature/general media parody
    AD: Political commentary

    I was a big fan of family guy, but since coming back from being cancelled it seems like they try way to hard. Doesn't mean I don't like it but it's just not the same as the first three seasons.

    I used to like the first couple of seasons.. But then they begin to drag everything on.. and the jokes are usually completely irrelvant to the plot of the episode


    That's Why I Like South Park Better :D

    I feel the same way. Too many Meg jokes (the same joke used 800 billion times=not funny), too concentrated on Peter, plus there's way too much singing on it now.

    Ugh! I know, can't show writers realise that singing is not fun to watch on a cartoon?

    Most annoying/long song = Shapoopi song :mad5:

    My favorite cartoon comedy actually isn't The Simpsons or Family Guy.

    It's King of the Hill, King of the Hill FTWMWFT.

    Although The Simpsons will always be my all time favorite.

    Well, most of you guys are making the right choice. If you don't know about it or like it, try it or give it another chance, you may find that you're rapidly becoming obsessed with the show. That's what happened to me.
