I must concur.
Each episode of Family Guy delivers at least one nearly fall off the couch guffaw, The Simpsons have not done this for me much, if at all, over the last 6 or 7 years.
Now perhaps thats because the Simpsons just can't keep the humor fresh after so long and Family Guy is only in its quasi-4th season, and maybe 10 years from now if FG is still on I'll find it becoming stale, but for now give me Stewie and Brian over Bart and Santa's Little Helper.

Family Guy now > Simpsons now
Simpsons when Conan was writing > Any TV show that has ever been made.

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.
No offense taken

I did think that but Lois is a former Karate Champion and gave birth to the future ruler of the Universe. I left the Lois vs. Marge debate because I thought it was too close to call.

As for the children I think it would be a Griffin clean sweep.

Anyone have any ideas about Mayor West vs. Diamond Joe Quimby.
I'm going with Kennedy, I mean Quimby much bigger guy plus he's got mob friends.



I have put much too much thought into this. Maybe I'd be happier on a Sci-Fi Message Board.

Adam West is infinitely funnier than Quimby.

"Oh no...that episode of Growing Pains where Mike's friend Boner ran for student council....B-boner!...his....name...was....bbbboooner"

"Nobody messes with Adam We..."

And let's not forget the greatest Adam West moment: when he's talking through a tube of toilet paper... "Does it sound like I'm on old time radiooooo?"

and I agree! Futurama is/was/whatever my favorite show of this kind

but about Simpsons or Family Guy... believe me, I'm a big Simpsons fan, I almost know every single line in every single ep., but new seasons are bad (that's the word), and Family Guy wins for that reason... I'm comparing Simpsons newest seasons with Family Guy in general

Maybe we should be more specific with the question, i.e., are we comparing the shows as they both are now in 2005? Or should we compare the series' as a whole? Or are we comparing the best season of FG and the best season of the Simpsons?
