I prefer American Dad just because the show seems more consistently funny throughout the Seasons (Bar Season 1, which I thought was terrible). Don't get me wrong Family Guy Seasons 1 through 3 are amazing pieces of Television, and are in my favorites of all time, but 4 and above didn't make the cut for me...
Its funny to think that at one point The Simpsons were kinda like Family guy in its prime, with its kind of riskiness and edge, and now Family guy is starting to be the norm and people dont mind it so much with its "adult" content, and now i see that people are becoming a bit jaded just like they did with the Simpsons. So we need to reach another level of raunchiness and crudeness for people to be entertained and wow'ed.
but yeah i liek American dad, mostly because of Roger the feminine alien, awesome.
Both excellentand I don't get the 'new' Family Guy hate. It is hilarious and the random bits that don't fit the story are what makes it even funnier.
Humour is a personal thing. I can't stand Conan O'Brien and don't get how he is even popular, but if someone likes him, I could care less. Watch what you like.
" Neither tbh im sick of my friends at college quoting them all the time . King of the hill is where its at ."i work with propane and propane accessories i tell u what"
American Dad. Family Guy making me sit through an entire Coway Twitty video was fucking stupid. So was the bird is the word shit. If you condensed Family Guy down to the actual plot without the fluff, they would be four minute episodes.
Both are most certainly not great but at least American Dad makes jokes based on it's own characters and situations, as opposed to Family Guy which relies purely on pop culture non-sequiturs to pad out whatever thin story there is. Despite the Simpsons going downhill it will still be better than both on the strength of its earlier (but not earliest, lets be clear) seasons.
