The Annoyance of Family Guy

I REALLY hate Family guy, who can honestly still say they are still entertained by the antics of Peter and his gang? I've been watching Family Guy since its beginning and I used to be entirely consumed by it. The plot was a mess, the characters were all over the place and the jokes made no sense, it was a great show to watch with The Simpson's quickly going down the drain. That was about eight years ago and as one of the first people in my school to know what the show was I introduced it to my classmates and was congratulated for it, a show so new, fresh and bold was enticing to the fifth grade audience I bragged about it to. I heard that song from Journey about 300 times and couldn't get enough until about three season ago there was a joke that didn't make me laugh, it just annoyed me. Now if i ever watch an episode i try and count the amount of times i laugh, try it yourself-my record since i started counting is 7, one every three minutes. I am flabbergasted with the respect people have for this show. Now there's 2 of them, I did try and watch The Cleveland Show, at first it was alright a little different then Family Guy, maybe enough to watch but it got into the Family Guy groove and its stuck there. Hating family guy this much as actually given me respect for The Simpsons, something i thought was dead forever came back to life and impressed me as the series went back to there roots in terms of joke styles. I'm not saying Family Guy has changed at all only my tastes of what actually makes a show good has. They try to hard, get to little, and the constant re-dos and stretching out of jokes just makes me pity them. I like a lot of television, why is it that maybe the most recognized name on television now is my most hated? Like I said I was a lover of the show and now turned hater, I'm wondering what the T.V. viewing public has to say about my view of this most heinous of television shows. P.S. I know there are grammar errors and probably more then one spelling mistake so don't bother correcting me on them, you'll just appear a fool.

'The Cleveland Show': Watch Hall and Oates' devilish (and angel-ish) cameo

This Sunday, Hall and Oates cameo on Family Guy spin off The Cleveland Show, and you can see their appearance below. I don't know what relevance it has to the plot, but I do know Oates has allowed himself to be the butt of jokes abut his lack of stature (both professional and actual). That makes him a big man in my book. And, as the book in question is the new biggie from Stephen King, he will actually fit in it! I jest, of course. Dare I ask if you can go for this cameo? I dare! I dare! Source & Video

And the answer? No it did not. The second episode hit yet another series low, with just 2 million viewers. More people watched the Stargate Universe premiere over on Syfy. The winner for the second consecutive Friday night was CBS with the combination of Ghost Whisperer (7.6 million), Medium (7.7 million) and Numb3rs (7.7 million). NBC came in second with new episodes of Law & Order , Dateline and The Jay Leno Show. ABC again opted to air repeats, which was good for a 3rd place finish. Sunday Highlights from Sunday included the debut of new drama Three Rivers on CBS, which premiered to a disappointing 9.2 million viewers. This might not sound like a terrible figure, but it was only good for a 4th place finish for CBS. NBC won the night with football, followed by Fox's animated comedy block ( Family Guy was the most viewed with 9.7 million; The Cleveland Show held fairly strong with 8.7 million viewers) and then ABC, whose Sunday lineup enjoyed small improvements for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition , Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters . What did you think of the debut of Three Rivers ? How much longer do we give Dollhouse ? Sources: Zap2it and THR
