Top 10 Worst Family Guy Episodes of All-Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Brian Writes a Bestseller

Ain't too bad an episode. Sure, Brian's a dick, but his rant about walking out of the back room of a restaurant was pretty funny. I can't blame him for feeling mortified about that. A lot of times, the back of a restaurant is where people go out and beat the crap out of each other; it makes a bit of sense to me

I just wanted to punch Brian in the face so bad in this episode.

I love this episode! It so funny!

22 Vestigial Peter

This episode is good, Chip is cute and when Peter gets angry it's hilarious.

Hey, I liked chip! - Tabbygirl

23 Movin Out (Brian's Song)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds it boring. No good jokes that I remember!

It's as boring as HELL!

This episode was dreadfully boring. Neither the main plot nor the subplot was the least bit entertaining. That and all the characters were just downright unlikeable, so it was an all around pointless episode.

This episode is deathly boring...

24 And I'm Joyce Kinney

I am so scarred to end up like stewie. didn't he got his football head from a porn star?

As much as I hate this episode, I've gotta admit that the "burning bush" oneliner was pretty good. to me I think it's Christians satirizing innuendos. power to them.

This is one of my favorite episodes! Why is it so high!? - TheEvilNuggetCookie

25 Excellence in Broadcasting

Pretty much just a boring episode, the only part I can think of that kept me awake was when Rush Limbaugh beat up that gang.

Really? Brian becomes a republican? Come on Seth you can do better than that

Boring as hell. This is number 2 behind life of Brian

Sucks so much. It was so boring.

26 Be Careful What You Fish For

This is a boring episode. The dolphin just wasn't funny, and Brian was very unlike able. - RalphBob

Ricky gervais isn't funny. Family guy is funny, but not funny enough to balance out gervais. Completely ruined what could have been a hilarious episode. Scen s without the dolphin/gervais delivered as usual, but gervais voice as the dolphin sucked the funny out of the scene the way hurricane Irma sucked water out of the Bahamas

Dumb episode

God I hate this episode. Gervais's humour really does not translate well onto FG.

27 Chris Cross

This is easily one of the worst episodes of any show that is supposed to be funny. Stewie loves, and sings the songs of Anne Murray! WHOA! Anne Murray is so 70's and UNCOOL! So everyone's least favorite unfunny douche Brian joins Stew's appreciation for Ms. Murray and they go to see her to settle a debate! And Stewie is shocked she didn't write her own songs! And there's a kindnap/forcible capture! YAY! Oh, and meanwhile Chris steals from Lois' purse. Meg is an vindictive, damaged from abuse and here's her chance ass. He goes to... Mr. Herbert's! WOW! I tell ya.. Imagien the hijinks and hilarity when two people who make an unconsummated pedophilia issue have to share a house!

Come on. IT'S JUST GARBAGE! Worse.. It's just not funny.

Ahhh yet another terrible episode for Seth Mcfarlen to preach his hateful “I hate Christians” atheist views. We get it Mcfarlen your a rightwing liberal butthole atheist! - MJfan119

30 Go, Stewie, Go!

The main story isn't too bad. It's the side plot that ruined this episode. Lois stole Meg's boyfriend away from her. She even made out with her boyfriend! Lois even goes far enough to blame Peter for this? What the hell is wrong with this woman?

31 I Never Met the Dead Man
32 Carter and Tricia
33 You Can't Do That on Television, Peter

Apparently, He Can Do That on Television.

At least it was nice to see Lois get punishment for her constant nagging.

Kentucky is a state is offensive for Kentuckians

34 FOX-y Lady

Peter was just TOO ANNOYING in this episode and I just hated it when Peter kept insinuating the guy from FOX. Everything else in this episode was good.

35 Airport 07

I loved this episode

Painfully unfunny - N4XUS

36 April in Quahog

Are we supposed to feel bad for Peter how saying something terrible? But a minor plus is there was a funny joke.

I like this episode, but Peter saying that thing is horrible.

37 Brokeback Swanson

This episode was the first episode I truly hated brian. he’s absolute scum in this episode

38 Jerome is the New Black

OK- who do I side with on this one: Brian or Quagmire? It's not even close; Brian.

Brian is never given the benefit of the doubt in this one. He's trying as hard as he can in this one. He's not being a douche or showing off; he's just trying to reach out to Quagmire and establish a friendship. Quagmire twists everything that Brian says to make him out to be a jerk; that's all. Now, for all of you Brian haters, I gotta stick it to Quagmire here. When Quagmire calls out Brian for everything he's done wrong, he is NOT ONE TO TALK. He criticizes Brian for hitting on his best friend's wife, when Quagmire does it to THREE of his friends' wives; Loretta, Lois, and Bonnie. I don't care if he's honest about it; that doesn't redeem him from raping women all the time. If Brian were doing what Quagmire did, everyone would HATE him, and Quagmire still gets away with it. I also think he has no real right to call out Brian for being a liberal, when everyone is entitled to their own opinions. ...more

This is definitely the episode that sums out the whole season 8. While the main plot is heartwarming, decent and funny, the subplot is what made this episode the worst. Plus the subplot also lack development on how Quagmire suddenly started to hate Brian after 7 seasons because Quagmire never hate Brian before. Well, I can't say I blame him, it was the lazy writers who had done this. They probably ran out of ideas and just thought of that. Plus I also hated how they continuity Quagmrie hating Brian. That their just lack character development and pretty much the laziest subplot of the entire season 8 episodes.

This episode is Family Guy's worst. Listening to Quagmire's non intellectual rant on Brian was the worst moment of the series. It was pointless, angry and hard to listen to. There was never any history of Quagmire hating Brian before and no jokes landed in this episode. This was the episode that made me not have to tune in every Sunday night.

This episode should be number 1.It was the first episode that made me really hate Quagmire.Then after I watched Quagmire's Dad,Tiegs For Two and Brian the Closer It made me hate Quagmire to the point of wanting him to be killed off.

This episode was just plain stupid; it basically says that if you drink too much you should not give up drinking alcohol but continue drinking in moderation completely ignoring that many alcohol abusers have to give up drinking for the sake of their health. The episode made no difference to Peter and Brian's drinking problems because in later episodes they are shown to still be abusing alcohol. The episode also has one of the worst cutaway gags which is just Seth MacFarlane preaching his atheism.

This episode was just morally offense. You could actually die from drinking too much.

The message of this one makes no sense, and the musical number went on for WAY too long. Skip this one please

I swear to god that booze musical went on for way too long and was getting very irritating.

40 3 Acts of God

Personally I didn't mind this one.
