look up any word, like thot:

Very formulaic and repetative mainstream animated comedy. Other than a few jokes that could be cast-offs from the NEWER series of The Simpsons, half the humour starts with words such as "remember the time when..." which lead into some "humorous" random flashback sequence, the other half being visual references to pop culture past and present that you can see coming from a mile off... Loses it's freshness well within the 3 episode mark.

Also manages to spawn annoying catch phrases that trendies and wannabe liberal hipsters like to repeat.

The fans are usually irritating too.
Kid 1: family guy iz so awesum!1
Kid 2: No, go and watch some Blackadder, Red Dwarf, or if you realy need animated comedy, South Park. At least they don't resort to 1937284562 "remember the time when..." jokes

A show about a obnoxious fat guy and his big nose wife and mentally disturbed daughter, dumb older son, and evil turned gay baby, and talking dog. When it it first aired, it was okay but got old real quick and was canceled but brought back because of popular demand by geeky thirteen to sixteen year olds who bought all the first few seasons on DVD memorizing every joke because they think random piss poor puns are comedic gold. Ever since then, it has gone on a slow decline to the point where the writers just rely on cheap gags and two to three minute long unfunny flashbacks and stupid musical notes. Yes there are some good episodes but for every good one there are ten bad ones. If you really look at it, it's nothing more than a cheap rip off of the much better in comedy and animation the Simpsons. The characters are annoying, the the plots happen in the last ten minutes while the first ten to twelve is just random unfunny crap and worst of all the show gets preachy to the point where you can't stand thinking about it.
Plus the creator, Seth McFarlane is nothing but an arrogant prick who makes fun of people that don't agree with him or Bill Maher but fails every time.
13-16 year old geek: Hey did you watch Family Guy last night, it was so funny!

Normal Person: No because I'm not a retard with no friends who thinks a fat guy trying to pick up a dead frog with a shoe box for five minutes is funny.

A very bad ripoff of The Simpsons.

I have been forced to watch this show, and leave by the second commercial break. It's gotta be the stupidest thing on T.V.

The number one "worst" show to watch as said by many critics.

Top 3 worst shows out today according to the critics:

1. Family Guy (Fox)
2. American Dad (Fox)
3. The O.C. (Fox)
Ringin' any bells?

a show not only comprised of flashback scenes, but also Seth McFarlane's annoying-ass voice, men beating up women, and pointless retarded jokes against Meg.
Family Guy is a lot worse than what most people say. The Simpsons is much better.

LOL, it's that 80s cartoon!
Family Guy thrives on references to past events. Even when people (idiots) don't get what it means, they sure do laugh their asses off at it. Sad.

Verb: To point out the punchline or gag of your own joke so that your audience, which you assume is daft, will understand and laugh.
Person 1: My head is actually extremely hard
Person 1: Hahaha that's sexual!!!
Person 2: Way to Family Guy your own joke, man.
