Suprised most of the people prefer Family Guy, but then again it is funnier and better episodes at the moment.

Older Simpsons.
Family Guy over newer Simpsons.
Quoted for truth.

South Park wins all though.

The fact that this is even a debate is embarrassing for all of us.

Simpsons. Some of the very best comedy ever put on television, rather than
"This is worse than that time they put Steven Hawking on American Gladiators"/
"worse than the time they cast Hugh Grant as Malcolm X"/
"worse than the time Peter caught his face in the microwave"/
"worse than the time Adam Sandler starred in that bathtub of AIDS" forever.

The South Park episode where they took the piss out of Family Guy succeeded in being funnier and cleverer than Family Guy has ever managed, by a very long way.

(NB necessary "yes, some Simpsons seasons are ****" caveat.)

Agreed 100%. I mean youll never see celebrities being ripped on the simpsons the same way they do it on family guy.

Simpsons for sure, it has been crap for a while but the old episodes are still hillarious, better storylines and anyone can watch it. Family Guy is funny but half the time all it does is take the piss out of other people and make comments on society in a way that's sometimes kind of patronising.

Simpsons is classic, but it doesn't make me laugh. Family Guy does though

Yes! Simpsons every time. The Simpsons has about 5 or 6 absolutely classic seasons and for me Family Guy has really lost its way after coming back on air. The new episodes rely way too much on abstract scenes and I find Seasons 2 & 3 are still the best.

Now if it was a debate between The Simpsons and South Park that would be a completely different matter...

On the same note, Family Guy has too many 'like the time...' scenes in every episode.

Still love it but the first 3 seasons were better when there was a bit less of that.
i love the "like the time...."
and i will never get bored of them unless they get really unfunny.
the simpsons needs to put more jokes about milhouse there always the best but you dont get them in later seasons.

I grew up with classic Simpsons and consider it the best thing on television ever. However the last few seasons* are naff, I haven't bothered watching the last two seasons. Family guy is better then new Simpsons, but it isn't as good as it's first three seasons prior to cancellation. The Simpsons movie was ten years too late.

*By that I mean over half a decade. :sad:

The Simpsons is just much better comedy. It's not as laugh out loud funny as Family Guy, but nowadays I watch it for the satirical jibes at America and modern culture, some of which are very subtle and razor-sharp. Family Guy is just immature humour, and most of it is just derived from lame "Remember when X happened" flashback sequences or what ifs, which programs like Scrubs do a lot of too.

I voted for Family Guy as I feel that the Simpsons has become a little stale of late and isnt as funny as it used to be. My kids watch both of them....but dont understand some of the innuendo in Family Guy, they still laugh at it though.
