I've never seen this show, but I'm completely intrigued now and might consider watching it.

Its irreverence is part of its charm. And no politico/celebrity is exempt from the writers' sarcasm. laugh

I enjoy Family Guy, and it's one of my hubby's favorite shows. The writing is very clever and Stewie is my favorite.

I've been hooked since an episode way back when Peter was talking about a big a** pinata and then they showed a pinata shaped like an a**! LOL

Would I let my kids watch it? Probably not, or at least until they were old enough to see the comedy in it and not take it as "normal".

I am just impressed that there are women on this thread that watch Family Guy. My wife leaves the room when it comes on. I just thought the show was "guy humor." Predictable, gross, and bloody hilarious.

Anyone see the South Park last night? "A woman's mouth is the dirtiest place on earth." Poor Kenny... but, I sure could go for some TGI Friday's right now.

How about the south park when the cripple teacher's electric wheelchair battery died in the middle of the intersection and nobody would help her!

I'm also quite a fan of the episode in which Cartman gets his period.

I wonder if maybe shows like this influence what we see as "normal".

I wonder if a "normal," diverse, professional group of bankers would have discussed some of the subject matter on this thread 20 years ago...40 years ago...60 years ago...

No, but 2000 years ago in Athens or Rome, probably yes.

I don't know anything about those shows.
My husband and daughter use to watch South Park on the weekend - late at night- I could never figure out what was so funny. They were always laughing.

And I wonder if that's a good or bad thing...oh, wait, it's wrong to make those kind of judgments. (Oh, the irony.)

My husband and I are huge family guy fans!! Every episode sends me into at least one laughing fit! laugh

I agree that if you don't like something that is on tv, then don't watch it. If I have an issue with a particular show, I'm not going to force myself to watch it just so I can complain about it afterwards.

Is there anything that shouldn't be on broadcast TV?

Ok, I contributed to this, but I'd still like a serious response to my question (and Z's earlier point) - since we can always "change the channel," is there anything (apparently something "worse" than Family Guy) that shouldn't be on broadcast TV?
