Overall, The Simpsons is just too much of a legacy to not be voted on by myself. That being said, I also REALLY like Family guy and South Park (which was not listed). All of them are extremely humorous with great characters and usually great writing/commentary. Funny stuff.

In it's first four seasons, Family Guy is infinitely more funny than the first four seasons of the Simpsons, which really hit stride in and around seasons 5-9 or 10. If FG has the good fortune of being around for as many seasons as the Simpsons have enjoyed, I think it will be a marketing and cultural force on par with its "rival".


And I know there's a lot of Lenny fans here, but I gotta say this:

The Simpsons has Lenny.
Family Guy has Glen Quagmire.

No. Contest.

A legend in his own time:
Quagmire: Now that's a woman! That's a house, that's a fish, that's a bee!!!

Quagmire at a police auction:

Actioneer: Next up is a pair of hookers panties

Quagmire: 50 Bucks

Actioneer: She had an STD

Quagmire: 40 Bucks

Actioneer: And she pee'd in them

Quagmire: 50 Bucks

Thanks dude.

Anyway, The Simpsons (which I agree has taken a nose dive in recent years) and Southpark are two of my favorite shows of all time (along with Arrested Development, Seinfeld, etc.) I just find FG incredibly unfunny. Oh well, my loss. I'll just watch something else.

Sorry no offence meant, but I just think there's plenty of good subtle jokes in Family Guy like the Simpsons USED to be. Besides how could I insult a Seinfeld fan.
I think that get's to the heart of my annoyance with the Simpsons it used to be my favourite show before the newer ones disappointed so often. Compare that with Seinfeld where the final couple of series were as good if not better than the earlier series.

Family Guy is better because of Stewart Gilligan Griffin, he would like beat the hell out of Bart any day of the week.

Maybe this a better way of evaluating the contest. I'm sure Stewie could take Bart but despite the Chicken incidents I think Homer could take Peter. Not sure about Lois vs Marge though.

Marge used to be a cop AND a female bodybuilder. She'd own Lois's ass.


Simpsons all the way, just for the simple fact that Lisa Simpson is the coolest little girl cartoon character ever.
