Which is better: Family Guy (yes) or South Park (no)?

  • Family Guy is way funnier than South Park

    I think there might be an IQ gap between these two fan bases. That would explain why 83% have thus far voted in favor of South Park. I think a lot of people don't really get Family Guy's humor; maybe on a superficial level, but there are multiple layers to it. South Park is infantile in comparison; there is no subtlety. For me, It barely manages to evoke the slightest chuckle. The writing is insipid and its target audience is probably around the same age as its characters. Family Guy delivers more humor in one-liners than South Park does in entire episodes.

  • A realistic view on society.

    Family Guy gives a realistic view into the lives of an American family home. Meanwhile, South Park focuses on ignorant children who not only enjoy using profanity, but are also disrespectful to their elders. It teaches our children that this kind of behavior is okay. I believe Family Guy is more child appropriate and teaches better values, making it a better television show.

  • Real Plot Line

    South Park has good jokes and plots that make sense. Family Guy is just stupid and throws in jokes for the heck of it. Sometimes the jokes thrown in do not even make sense. South Park sticks to a single plot and always delivers. Family Guy is not funny, AT ALL!

  • Family Guy is better.

    I personally think that Family Guy is better than South Park. This comes from someone who has only seen bits and pieces of each show and is not a regular viewer of either. From what I have seen, Family Guy is a lot funnier and more entertaining than South Park.

  • Yes Family Guy is better than South Park.

    Family guy is better than South Park because of Family Guy's characters, the writers and content. Family guy is about the Griffin family. The dad, Peter is just crazy. He is not the smartest guy but he is a stereotypical overweight guy who thinks he is hot, likes to drink excessively (he does everything excessively), and is all about himself. The mom, Lois, is a good mom but is self centered. She is a typical bored housewife who is trying to run her family and find herself. She tolerates, accepts and loves her crazy husband. Meg is a shy nerdy kid who is trying to fit in and get a date. She is not pretty and knows it so settles for what she can get. Chris is the eldest son. He is not very smart but has odd talents. He has a good heart. Stewie is the baby and evil genesis. He is actually a scary little boy. The family dog, Brian talks, who wouldn't like a talking dog. Family guy talks about the issues and sometimes has a message. It is not always the right message but if you listen it is there. The writer of family guy is highly creative in a crude way which makes the show funny. He explores real issues and explains them in a funny entertaining way.
    South Park is a show about children who are just rude, overbearing and trouble makers. While the show has some humor, it always has gross content. The writers make fun of real people they dislike and this is obvious. Issues are discussed but give warped messages. People who like South Park like gross, disturbing and weird issues and characters.

  • South Park is alot Funnier alot Smarter and has alot more Heart

    When it comes down to the truth, here it is. South Park has the best writers who can actually:

    1 Make an interesting story that has relevance to on the wire issues affecting modern day society. Take for instance Kenny dies ep (is stem cell research moral or evil) world of war craft (How do you kill that which has no life)
    2 has characters that we actually care about. Who here doesn't love or relate to Randy Marsh (crazy, eccentric really funny) Eric Cartman (super intelligent, sadistic, really funny) or Kyle (has morals, has heart). This is because these characters are BELIEVABLE because the writing is so good. Compare that with Peter Griffin (fat, Stupid,uncaring unlovable) Chris Griffin( fat, Stupid) and Meg (completely forgettable) . The reason Family Guy's characters are so stupid, idiotic not very funny is because they rely on random cutaway gags and they have not been written properly. We don't relate to these characters because they are too cartoonish and not beleivable.
    Compare this with South Park, Characters who go beyond the page beyond cartoon into real life.
    I FUCKING DARE YOU to challenge me on this. I FUCKING DARE YOU. No contest
    3 HAS JOKES THAT ARE RELEVANT TO THE STORY AND THE PLOT WHICH ARE STILL FUNNY. Take any South park episode and it has jokes that are relevant to an issue or specific events at the time which is perfectly written into the story. The Losing Edge episode is a classic and shows how funny South park and Randy Marsh can be.
    FAMILY GUY RELIES ON CUTAWAY GAGS AND RANDOMLY PLACED JOKES WHICH HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RELEVANCE. The reason Family Guy does this is because the jokes don't have to be written into the story they can just be put anywhere any time. This makes for random hit and miss jokes which would be funnier had they effected the outcome of the plot. Family Guy really is written by Manitees who place random joke balls into a tub. (Cartoon Wars)
    4 South Park always tries to ask the difficult questions, be the moral compass and introduce people to ideas they didn't know about. Be it stem cell research, BP oil spill, Drones, black people being shot by police.

    So when it comes down to it there really is no contest. Family Guy is for idiots, people who want to switch their brains off after a long day, t's just random cutaway gags, most of which are forgettable.
    For all of you who find Family guy funnier you must have parents who are related your that fucking dumb
    Seriously, for those of you who find Family guy funnier there is no hope just kill yourselves now.

    South Park is Laugh out Loud slapping your knee funny
    Family Guy is only mild chuckle funny

  • Are you kidding me

    Everyone saying South Park fans don't understand family guys humour is being stupid....... I like family guy as well but South Park is a lot better than family guy could ever be. South Park has an actual message and actual jokes about the plot not just random pointless stuff. South Park is the winner

  • Family Guy is funnier

    Family Guy's every episode is a self contained (generally), the humor requires one to think in extremes and is very intelligent. I know lots of people who don't seem to 'Get' it and although I would not say they are dumb but they are not as imaginative as I am. In short the humor is Fluid and genius in some parts but mostly good.

  • Family Guy has overtaken South Park

    I used to be massively in favour of South Park over Family Guy. But in the last 5 or so years my opinion has steadily changed. I think year on year family guy has been getting funnier and better written, whereas South Park have been trying too hard for bigger and better story arcs which don't work.
    Ultimately I still watch both, but I get bigger laughs now from watching a recent Family Guy episode to watching a recent South Park episode.

  • People Just Don't Get South Park

    People think South Park is just kids swearing? That is the reason people watch Family Guy. They don't understand any morals or lesson, so they watch stupid joke after joke shows. South Park teaches important lessons and morals that people normally don't talk about. They mention modern day activity in a funny way. Family Guy fans don't understand South Park's mature humor.

  • South Park has infinitely better writing

    The first few seasons of Family Guy were fantastic, as were the first few seasons of South Park. Then Family Guy began to dip in the quality of its jokes and writing while South Park did not. It has gotten to the point where Family Guy seems to think that it needs to clearly and loudly explain their typically obvious and cliched jokes to the audience, or that having characters scream at each other is automatically funny. They expect their audience to laugh on cue rather than respond to actual comedy.
