    There has been some bad blood between these shows for a while now.

    Simpsons made fun of Family Guy and American Dad in the episode Italian Bob where Peter Griffin was in a criminal book as a copier and how Stan Smith is a copier of a copier.

    Family Guy made fun of the Simpsons in the opening credits of the Stewie Griffin Story by having Stewie run over Homer and then slapped a reporter who mentioned Futurama coming back.

    Now South Park is aiming at Family Guy tonight with Kyle being a fan of Family Guy and Cartman not being able to stand it.

    What does everybody think?

    *Waits for Super_Ludacris to show up and hate on The Simpsons and Southpark and then press his lips firmly against the ass of The Family Guy.*

    It's a tough choice for me. I revisit the old Simpsons episodes, and I'm back in love. Then I watch a new one, and I want to off somebody. So, if I'm going by who hit the highest high, I'd go with the Simpsons. For the better average of quality, Futurama.

    they all suck donkey balls, using the idea that animation is for children then spinning it on its head to get cheap laughs...

    the adult themed manga societies of this world would bow their head at shame at the cheap tricks being used to make people laugh...

    :(

    bah

    I love the Simpsons. I've watched it since it was on Tracy Ullman show.

    I started watching South Park since it's first episode.

    Futurama in syndication has grown on me and I find it to be a very touching and poignant show sometimes.

    Family Guy I find funny as well but I wonder how many jokes the younger kids gets because these are a lot of 80's references in there.

    American Dad I don't find funny at all.

    Family Guy I liked the first couple of times, but now it just feels tired.

    I didn't think there would ever be a show that I would find funnier The Simpsons.

    Then came Futurama.

    I can't really say I find Futurama funnier than the old Simpsons, but definitely more poignant. I do love them though.

    Luck of the Fryish, The Sting and The Wry of Fry are all touching episodes of Futurama. :up:

    I'm going to start watching more of it on syndication.

    It has great continuity if you watch it sequentially from beginning to end.

    Yeah I like the fact that they tie their episodes together. But I have to watch it on cartoon network or else actually buy it.

    VERY tough between Family Guy and Futurama....but I really miss Futurama and watch more of it than Family Guy....so my vote goes to Futurama, as it was more fresh for me!

    -new simpsons sucks.
    -old simpsons was good for it's time, but mostly doesn't really hold up today.
    -futurama is easily the best written (story wise, and funny wise) and best animated of them all.
    -american dad is pretty terrible.
    -family guy, in my opinion, is hilarious. alot of the jokes are very hit and miss, though.
    -south park is great now, but i don't think alot of the newer "news topic of the week" episodes are going to hold up in the long run. the regular episodes are still pretty golden, though.

    I think Trey and Matt are reported to get annoyed when someone comes up to them and say "Hey I love your show! Your's and Family Guy!" They take offense to that.

    I'm a Family Guy fan. Always will be. I never really got into the Simpsons, and Futurama is a close second.

    just about my sentiments exactly, Mr. Credible

    I don't hate on the simpsons, new or old, as much, but the show has lost it's flavor for me

    Gotta go with the Simpsons been watching it since I was 5 :up: after that I have to say that Family Guy is pretty good and lastly Futurama. I've seen a few south park episodes and American Dad but not a fan though.
