Family Guy was created by Seth MacFarlane, who is very self-congratulatory and egotistical about the success of his show. However, it's a mostly undeserving success, as the show contains nothing but mediocre animation, and ugly art style, bland and tasteless humor, prejudiced political and racial opinions, and empty, soulless characters. The only thing this show deserves an award for is coming up with a genius marketing scheme by targeting an audience of confused, socially-inept teenagers.
The characters of Family Guy, as well as the show itself, have bloated in popularity over the years that it's been on television. Mr. MacFarlane is commonly praised for his genius writing and character development, however, if you have the intelligence to look a little deeper, you'll realize the characters are all extremely inconsistent in personality, and are simply rehashed personalities filling an otherwise empty shell.
As of now, the show is scraping at the bottom of the barrel, airing on failures of networks such as "Adult Swim", struggling to stay afloat in a sea of superior television shows. Every few months, Seth will release another unfunny, boring episode that's immediately loved unconditionally by it's pathetically unintelligent fan-base.
Alex: "Yes. It was terrible and unfunny, same as always."
Jared: "NO, IT WAS FUNNY AND YOU ARE A FAGGOT FOR NOT LIKING IT!"
Alex: "Get out of my house."
