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

The most fucking retarded show on TV. It isn't funny at all. Mostly talked about by losers that don't have anything to say so they quote a dumb ass TV show.
Loser: Did you watch the episode of Family Guy last night?

Other person: No, I have a fucking life.

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.

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.

A retarded show made by retards. Copies The Simpsons. Was funny to start when their ideas were original, but now it's just a load of shit.

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.
