Which one do you like better?
For me it used to be simpons but for some reasons they seem to have lost that edge! I still watch it all the time but if I have the option of watching family guy at the same time....I"ll pick family guy. What r ur thoughts?
Life only makes sense when you look at it backwards.

Well, heres my take:
Both are different shows, aimed at different audiences and both are great.
Personally, I'll now take Family Guy over The Simpsons, mainly because i find its style of humor a little more abrupt and in your face. The newer episodes of The Simpsons (before the film) seemed all to similar and mainly focused on Homer and Marge marital problems, however the newer series (after the film) seems to show signs of progress and the new episodes are good.
Still, providing either show is available to watch, I'm not fussed.

Definitely think both shows are hilarious, but right now I'd have to say Family Guy is funnier. The Simpson's is great but I think they were at their prime back in the mid-90's (like when Conan O'Brien was one of the writers). The episodes over the past 5-10 years haven't been quite as original and I feel like they keep reusing jokes from their classic episodes. I still watch the new ones, but I have to admit, I enjoy the reruns much more. My theory is the only reason the show's still running is because they have high ratings and Fox keeps offering them more and more money to keep it going.
Family Guy is still much more original. Their humor is definitely edgier and at times immature (which is usually pretty hilarious!). It's just a little more original at the moment, but if it keeps going a few more years it will probably "Jump the Shark" like the Simpsons too and become more stale.

I agree with ANCFlyer.
The Simpsons jumped the shark years ago. Now I only watch their Halloween specials and that's it.
Family Guy is just not funny to me anymore. Ever since that episode of Stewie (supposedly!) killing Lois, the show has jumped the shark and they have sealed their fate. Let's face it, Family Guy is going to be the next Simpsons. They're not going to accept defeat after they make an ultra crappy movie to be in theaters worldwide that people will be disappointed with, yet still see it just because it's Family Guy.
Go ahead Family Guy fans. Flame me all you want, you'd agree with me at least five years from now.

I like both shows, for different reasons. The Simpsons is classic and I think still works well. The Family Guy, however, is the ultimate gut rip show. It is so laugh out loud funny that I inevitably end up nearly in tears each show. South Park, on the other hand, sucks.

Quoting LTU932 (Reply 11): IMO nothing can beat M*A*S*H (not just the show, but also the film)
The show was good, if a tad melodramatic. I bought the film a few months ago, and both my wife and I were overwhelmed at how completely unfunny it was. Catch 22 came out at pretty much the same time, and it's so much better...
I don't think Fox really gave it a fair shot. When it was on the Sunday line up, the time slot it had was most often taken up when the afternoon football game ran long.
A new Futurama movie, Bender's Big Score is out on DVD. Comedy Central will be showing new episodes in 2008 i think. Those new episodes will be culled from the direct to DVD movies, so if you by them, you'll already have the new episodes. At least that is my understanding.

I prefer Family Guy. Now those lazy writers need to get off their striking asses and get back to work though.

Family Guy already made a movie, and it was funny as hell.
