Top 10 Worst Things About Family Guy

The Top Ten

The long gags
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

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.

Peter was originally stupid but had a kind heart and some common sense Now he's really stupid who is mean to meg and doesn't have sense at all lois was a hardworking wife who cares for her family and friends Now she's a bossy wife who calls people dumb when she is not smart enough meg is the same teenager girl she was back then but being a punching bag is not funny at all quagmire was a prevent and friend to Brian Now he's a total jerk to everyone and a rapist stiwe was originally a evil baby who wants to kill lois and rule the world Now he's a gay lover who wants to screw the dog and love Lois Brian was originally the voice of reason and a laidback dog Now he's self- absorbed freak who wants things his own way

Over the top violence
Overuse of sexual content
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.

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

It's offensive

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

The Simpsons had Lisa The Skeptic and The Monkey Suit.

Made fun of Mexicans too

No one posting is super sensitive or pc, the show is offensively stupid.

Really boring episodes
It rips off The Simpsons

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

The jokes are disgusting

The Contenders

It tries too hard to be funny

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

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.

Remember people, this show is TRYING to get cancelled.

Too many pointless stories
It's very mean spirited

That is so true. There are times where I just wanna stop watching the show because of all the vicious characters on it.

The jokes are cheesy
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

I hate quagmire because he hates Brian he never did anything wrong

Peter is abusive

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

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

I know right? Peter sucks and Homer could whoop some respect into Peter!

All the Griffins do is abuse each other

They abuse Meg for no reason

Peter Griffin is the most abusive of them all.

It ruined Star Wars
It's stale
Too many pop culture references

They really do have a habit of making fun of things better off left alone don't they?

Brain could've been replaced with Doogal, you know a very pop culture movie and flatulence.

Pedophilia jokes

Chris masturbating to his own mother? That's not funny!

Chris marries his dad

And Herbert

STD jokes

AIDS song.

It confuses disturbing for funny
It's a vehicle for Seth MacFarlane to state his beliefs
The writing is lazy

I've loved Family Guy for a long time, but one thing that really grinds my gears is when they recycle similar unfunny content into other episodes. One example is that whenever Meg or Brian meets a new love interest, that love is always ripped away from them for pretty much no reason. Meg or Brian does nothing wrong to deserve it oftentimes. Also I noticed that the love interest either leaves voluntarily or they die in a coincidental freak accident.

Remember the episode "The Juice is Loose" where Peter left Stewie on the roof? When Lois found out instead of discussing the incident we saw a 3 MINUTE performance of Conway McTwitty. WHAT THE BLEEP

Lack of originality

Seriously. I don't think I've seen one joke in the show that DOESN'T revolve around one pop culture reference.

The chicken fights

All this over the top violence just because of a stupid coupon?

It started in season 2? Lame comedy. Family Guy should've been cancelled in season 1 in my opinion.

It's inappropriate for kids
It makes 9/11 jokes
It makes fart jokes
Peter kills Yogi Bear

Pop culture.

Hypocrisy
The characters have become unlikable

All the characters have changed peter is a stupid ass and distributing lois is a bossy wife Brian is very annoying stuiwe is gay lover now Chris is always the same idiot meg is meg Quagmire is a selfish rapist Joe is a very good guy

The plots are next to non-existent
It's filled with pointless filler
It's all shock, and no substance
It butchers every moral that it tries to teach
It's not funny
It inserts music videos in the middle of episodes
Overuse of cutaway gags
Bad animation
Incest jokes
Terrible characters
Misinformation
Disturbing content

People say because its an adult cartoon. So? The Simpsons is too. Even though I have been watching The Simpsons since I was little but Family Guy is disturbing. Peter wants to marry his son. Dear Diary...Jackpot!

False information
They killed Brian and brought him back 3 episodes later
