Top 10 Reasons Why Family Guy Has Gone Downhill

Family Guy used to be good but over time it slowly got worse. The characters devolved terribly and the writing became atrocious. Here's reasons why it went downhill.

The Top Ten

1 There's no more original ideas for the show

If the show would've ended after it's 2002 run I would've preferred that. But instead it's been airing for almost 19 years and is clearly running out of ideas. - SomePersonYouHate

2 The humor's gotten terrible

I can't even laugh at Modern Family Guy it's that bad... - SomePersonYouHate

3 It has gotten too bland and dull

It's pretty boring to watch now to be honest. - SomePersonYouHate

4 The over reliance of cutaway gags

When Family Guy first started off these were fine but over time they've gotten really repetitive and annoying. - SomePersonYouHate

5 It's politically biased nowadays

I got nothing wrong with Seth being a liberal but he shoves his beliefs down the throat of all his viewers through Brian Griffin and it's gotten really annoying. - SomePersonYouHate

6 Unlikable characters

The characters are not only flanderized but are pretty unlikable. - SomePersonYouHate

7 The annoying Meg abuse

Meg Griffin is basically the show's punching bag, she's gotten killed numerous times and injured just for existing. It isn't funny and it's a serious problem. - SomePersonYouHate

8 The writing's gotten worse

The plot lines in the newer episodes are really weak. The episodes rely only on old pop culture references and not present pop culture references and interesting plot lines

The writing isn't even funny anymore or even good in the slightest. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Over reliance on shock humor

Shock humor's fine if it has a meaning behind it or a actual punchline but Family Guy shock humors has neither and it's gotten really overused. - SomePersonYouHate

10 Brian griffin's death was turned into a joke

Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah...Woah! Brian Griffin is not a prick, he's not good, but he's not as bad as Peter, Lois, Chris, Joe, Quagmire, and Stewie! People should feel bad for him and Meg, not hating him and Meg! - Gehenna

Brian Griffin was a liberal prick and he deserved to die! And now its time for Family Guy to be cancelled!
Family Guy is a πŸ’©and will πŸ"šπŸ"œ.

The Contenders

11 Too many character flanderizations

Peter used to be a caring father with a heart of gold but now he's a psycho path with the heart of a murderer
Brian used to be the voice of reason. Now he's a complete hypocrite. I could go on but you get the point characters have been flanderized. - SomePersonYouHate

12 It makes every character that we used to love unlikable these days

Peter is a retarded psycho, Brian is an annoying atheist, Lois is a cheater and Quagmire is a rapist nowadays.

13 It relies on too much toilet humour

Peter barley does anything else other than farts - TheAnusJam

14 The real life songs are the only good part now
