A friend of mine from the UK told me, surprisingly, that "The Family Guy" is seldom shown there. The poor guy is usy trying to order DVDs to get shipped from amazon before he goes home. Poor guy.

While I'm wasting time on such silliness, why is it all about Simpsons vs Family Guy? I'd like to see a more lively discussion on South Park vs. Family Guy. THAT seems like a much more fair comparison... both on cable, both a little dirtier, both not quite so old. This is the only one I found:

"Why the hate on South Park? South Park is by a far a more intelligent show than Family Guy, it uses subtletly in its critiques rather than obvious pop culture references. And while things like the "Shit" episode aren't subtle, they're taken to a ridiculous extreme to make a point about shows using shock value to promote an upcoming episode(NYPD Blue especailly).

Most South Park episodes have something to say about pop culture or society, and they usually find an interesting way to say it. Most Family Guy shows are just gag-fests(which are funny too), but aren't as well-written as South Park. "

Enough time-wasting. It's not like there isn't room for all three...
