    if u cant see the influence that the simpsons had on family guy u are stupid....watch any earlier episode of the simpsons and you will realize that family guy recycles the simpsons jokes concepts and ideas. Early simpsons had the same humor and randomness as family guy does now that gives u that laugh out loud even though ur by yourself effect. The whole incooorporating popular culture characters into their episodes was started by the simpsons, family guy picked up on the concept....but yea watch an older episode of the simpsons and u will see how family guy jacked the style....and dont get me wrong family guy is one of my favorite shows...ive been watching it b4 they were cancelled and they even mention my hometown on it

    what do you mean by early simpsons? Pre Season 5? I watch those really old eps now and just can't find them that funny. Season 5 though when Conan O' Brian joined the writing staff I think the show hit it's stride. He was the one who dumbed Homer down.Seasons 5-10 were great...

    I do think Family Guy now like those South Park eps pointed out are going to those flashback things or whatever way to much. They are funny but overused, I think it's just a way to make up for weak storylines. Seems like as of late American Dad has been the better show. It's almost like McFarlane is putting more time into it...

    Yeah, I've noticed that a lot.

    Family Guy started moving away from having a show based on a plot after season one, but they really started doing it when it came back.

    Simpsons just been on TOO LONG, I try to watch a new episode, and I usually fall asleep, or attempt suicide. No show can sustain being interesting after 15 years. Tho the Simpsons have sucked for a while.

    Get Season 4.

    And by the way, the new Family Guy episodes aren't as funny as the first 2 seasons.

    Simpsons has sucked for the last 5 years or so.......

    From 2005-2005 season, yea Family Guy takes the crown. But you can't compare 4 seaons of predictable, redundant comedy against 6 seasons (2-8) of pure comedy gold, which is the Simpsons.

    Simpsons wins. End of story.

    By the way merke, I'd say your opinions are valid as anybody, except that in this case, your reps speak well for you. Shut the hell up and sit the fuck down. Look at ya reps, bitch.

    Simpsons have had a few good episodes in recent years...the simpsons safari, treehouse of horror 12, the one with creationism vs. evolution, frank grimes jr....of course they aren't as consistent as before, but there have been some solid episodes.
