How come people who haven't watched the show in years are always the ones talking about how horrible it is now? If you don't watch it anymore, then how do you know? It may not be as good as it use to be, but it hasn't gotten that bad, and the Halloween episodes still kick ass. I watched the last episodes and it wasn't that bad.
I still watch it, it's decent TV. But the gulf in writing quality between the first dozen seasons or so, and now, is astronomical

I don't need profundity from the Family Guy, but some of the jokes just seem like mean-spirited cheap shots at celebrities instead of being humorous, lighthearted jabs at celebrities. I don't mind the random pop culture references, but there use to be some sort of point to them. Now, it seems like they're just using them for filler.
Family Guy is in no way better than The Simpsons.
Who gives a f*ck. Most celebrities are horrible people. And even if I'm wrong, they have enough money that they should be able to handle it.
