Top 10 Worst Things About Family Guy

The Top Ten
1 The Meg hating gag

Meg isn't worth all the hate and it's just stupid watching them hate on her a person would actually kill their brother than go to the prom with her really. The sad thing about the Meg hating gag is the reason why they hate her so much is because none of the writer know how to write for a teenage girl.

Meg doesn't deserve to be hated so much at school and at home. I'd honestly be her friend if I had because she's literally one the only good characters in the show.

I haven't watched much of Family Guy, but I think this should be number 1!

2 The long gags

Seriously, I hate these so much. All they do is either say something long, have a cutaway that's long, or drag out an unfunny joke.

The show could definitely do without them. They're pointless beyond belief.

3 The characters have become unlikable

The internal characterizations and external characterizations for the characters are not that relatable as they used to be unfortunately.

If characters in Family Guy existed in real life they would be shot.

4 It tries too hard to be funny

Family Guy is just a show that tries way too hard to be funny. It's barely ever funny because there's only a couple of scenes that made me laugh. At least The Simpsons and South Park are actually funny and good shows that actually make me laugh.

Seth was better at writing kids shows in the 90s... Johnny Bravo, Dexter's Laboratory, I am Weasel and Cow and Chicken.

5 It is getting worse and worse

Family Guy is just rubbish.

The Simpsons is a classic. In UK on Sky One and Channel 4 we have had Simpsons day which had some hours of Simpsons episodes (Channel 4 mostly shows 90s episodes in the weekend Sky One shows mostly any) I don't think ITV2 ever had Family Guy days and nope its not because its not as old as The Simpsons, they have had Simpsons days since the 90s.

They reached the point a show must stop.Most episodes look like trying to make fun of real life and not from other shows anymore.They know just too much real people and imitates them badly

6 Over the top violence
7 Overuse of sexual content
8 It's offensive

It's an adult cartoon. What did you expect? Although, I can agree Modern Family Guy sucks based on what I've heard from others and clips I've seen from bad modern episodes.

Back then it was offensive in a funny way, now its just trying to offend the audience.

So what if it's offensive? Just learn to take a joke.

9 Really boring episodes
10 The jokes are disgusting
The Contenders
11 Too much toilet humor

Toilet humor isn't funny at all in my opinion. (except the toilet humor in South Park because they actually somehow make it funny) And there's literally a scene where Peter chases Meg around with farts.

12 It rips off The Simpsons

Peter shot Meg just for saying "Hi", whereas Lisa called Homer a "baboon" (Lisa's Substitute, Season 2 Episode 19). Homer, however, was still nice to her even after that and tried to make her feel better, whereas Peter shot Meg JUST FOR SAYING "HI"!
That's why I hate Peter so much!

Peter is a stupider version of Homer but more violent he shot his daughter for saying "Hi". But ever heard of The Samsonadzes?

13 The Griffins are mean, cold, and heartless people
14 It makes fun of black people

This is pretty much the worst part in my opinion. I'm biracial and this is just offensive to me and it really cuts deep that Family Guy would say such horrible things about black people.

15 It's very mean spirited
16 It's not funny

One thing South Park can do but Family Guy can't. Make me laugh.

17 Peter is abusive

Peter Griffin should be in jail for the rest of his life because he's done so many bad things like shoot his daughter Meg because she said hi to him, child pornography, arson, robbing banks, beating up random people, sometimes even for no reason, animal abuse, and more.

Stewie finds out his real parents are Helga and Arnold from Hey Arnold and is sent to live with them not an annoying family.

Homer is called a jerk ass. But he is nicer than Peter.
Who do you think is the real jerk ass?

18 It's still on the air

It came out in 1999 cancelled in 2000. Rebooted 2002 cancelled only rebooted later because of dvd sales. Dvd sales.

19 Too many pointless stories
20 It makes fun of religion

There's a scene where it says something is worse than Hitler which is offensive to Jewish people which proves the show is anti semitic.

21 Quagmire's hatred for Brian

Sure quagmire has some points right about brian being a jerk. But quagmire being honest about his same flaws, is not the reason for that hatred. Brian tries altough fails to overcome his flaws, quagmire doesn't. Brian helped his son to becone better, quagmire did that too with some of his daughters, but still has many kids he doesn't even know about.

Brian is more mature than he is. To tell you the truth, I actually had thoughts about Brian getting revenge on Quagmire, but it sadly never happened and Brian actually got killed off in a episode. And Quagmire obviously never gave a crap at his funeral...god I want to punch this jerk, Brian is my second favorite character on the show (my first favorite is Meg) I can't believe why Brian gets so much hate from Quagmire for no reason at all. - Gehenna

22 It’s more dark than funny
23 The jokes are cheesy
24 It makes 9/11 jokes
25 All the Griffins do is abuse each other

Peter Griffin is the most abusive of them all.
