    I didn't see one and I know the three shows are pretty popular so I thought I'd start one

    American Dad is the only one out of the three I'll still watch. Family Guy stopped being funny awhile ago.

    I've been sick of these for a while now, but that Ted movie looks funny.

    i only watch Family Guy and American Dad. Tried Cleveland Show but wasnt too interested in it.

    i usually just wait for the DVD season box sets to come out to watch the season.

    Family Guy and American Dad were pretty good but now theyre pretty stupid and repetetive. Cleveland show was never good. The only thing that makes these shows worth watching is for Seth Macfarlane's voice acting.

    American Dad is the only good one out of those three. The only Family Guy episodes I enjoy are the Brian and Stewie ones.

    Those are the ones I hate most. I can't stand Brian and Stewie needs to go back to being evil like he was in the first episodes. Now he's just "Oh let me try and get Brian to fuck me." Granted the one where they went back in time to the pilot was okay.

    American Dad (love the theme song) and Family Guy (sometimes) are the only shows I watch.

    Cleveland Show doesn't interest me at all.

    I hate all three.
    I used to like Family Guy, but Seth Macfarlane got too preachy on his political and world views in later seasons and it just got unbearable to watch.
    And the cutaway gags just got repetitive after a certain point. Regardless of how tongue-in-cheek they were, it doesn't make them any funnier.

    American Dad is the only one I still watch. BBC3 are showing the latest (I think?) FG eps here, including some self-indulgent crap where Brian goes on a live-action TV show after writing a self-help book. Utterly terrible. The Cleveland Show is basically FG with a different lead character.

    One thing that REALLY bugs me about Family Guy is the inconsistent writing. A prime example of this is the Brian-Quagmire relationship. Early on, Brian used to regularly join in on Peter/Quagmire/Cleveland/Joe's shenanigans, then without any sort of character development on either part Quagmire suddenly dislikes Brian because he's a "douche" (MacFarlane's favourite overused phrase). I'd love to know why.

    I miss pre-cancellation Family Guy.

    You can tell American Dad is better, as MacFarlane isn't as heavily-involved with the writing (I think we have Dan Vebber to thank for that).

    I like American Dad. And early Family Guys (where Stewie actually wanted to kill Lois) were decent. Now they're shit.

    All three of them suck dirty seed from a mop.


    Anyone remember a show called "The Critic"?

    The nearest I got to seeing the critic was Jay Sherman turning up on the Simpsons.

    I used to watch them. Even had some DVD sets of Family Guy and American Dad. Now they just bore me. I've not watched any airing episodes for ages and I sold my DVDs. But then I can't really be arsed with watching much of any shows these days so maybe it's more to do with me than them.

    Season 1-3 of family guy are the best imo. The jokes were awesome,clever and very memorable now there just booring, repetitive and their for shock-value imho.
    American dad I think has had there ups and downs but it's still a great show and I tried to get into the cleveland show but that just s**ks donkeys**T. I think it will be interresting to see how Seth will handle the new Flintstones show.
