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

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.

Simple math, really.

The Simpsons minus the genius-ness that the Simpsons series has equals an overrated TV show for people who find irrelevant and random clips humorous (aka Family Guy).

Some people may think that South Park was being "random" with the manatees on the Cartoon Wars episode, but unlike Family Guy, this idea was a great use of metaphor of how it seems as if the writing staff of Family Guy just take random ideas ("idea balls") and put them together to form a "Remember the time when..." joke.

The only way I`ll ever credit Family Guy as "genius" is if the whole reason of creating Family Guy were to make easy money by targeting the not-as-mentally-or-emotionally-intelligent group of America (which appears to be a lot) with cheap jokes.
Family Guy Staff: Let`s take 5 idea balls and write another one of our classic jokes!

(more math)

"Laundry" + "Date" + "Winning" + "Mexico" + "Gary Coleman" = Lois asks Peter to do the laundry, and Peter recalls winning a date in Mexico with Gary Coleman.

"Remember the time when I won a date in Mexico with Gary Coleman?"
