Best Answer

Family Guy. Family Guy, most definitely.

Of course these two comedies are designed for two different mentalities. Family Guy appeals to the shot in the crotch mentality and The Simpsons appeals to a thinking person. There is also some crossover in the type of humor but they are predominately as described.

The Simpsons. The Simpsons, most definitely.

Opinions from Answers.com contributors
  • It depends. For pure humor, it's Family Guy. For more of a story driven, albeit still funny show, it's The Simpsons.
  • It really depends on your type of humor, in my opinion Family Guy is just a little but better, while The Simpsons is still a great show, it really comes down to your opinion.
  • I guess it really depends on what you think is funny but the correct answer would have to be The Simpsons but this is just my opinion.
  • The Simpsons is for more for a regular audience. And Family Guy is intended for more of a mature audience. Both are hilarious but I personally would prefer Family Guy.
  • The Simpsons is a great show and is so funny. I kind of believe that Family Guy copied the idea of The Simpsons, but in the end my choice is The Simpsons.
  • Actually if you think about it, Seth McFarlane's revolutionary cartoon that aired December 31st 1999 has made a impact on this world for viewers 13 to 45. That is saying a lot when you account for the entire 20 seasons The Simspsons have made.
  • In my opinion Family Guy is way funnier than the Simpsons. I just think their jokes are better and because they show clips of stupid stuff they have done before.

Family Guy - hands down.

It depends on the age of the child. Personally I would not let a child under the age of ten watch either one at all. These Cartoons are adult fare and deal with adult themes.

In my opinion Family Guy usually has more adult content.

(Family Guy is rated TV-14 and The Simpsons is generally TV-PG).

Lots of kids, like me, watch family guy. I watch the simpsons too, and i would say don't let kids under 13 watch it. Its a little too adult, so the child would have to be a young adult, teenager.

family guy is a very funny show and has more understandable jokes on it. family guy is less offensive than simpsons. the simpsons on the other hand have funny jokes on it. you also get a feel for the family. each family have some same stuff. both have 1 dad 1 mom 1 daughter 1 son 1 baby and 1 dog.

"Funny" is far too subjective so there isn't a definitive answer to this question.

If you think it's funnier, than it is, to you and just to you

That doesn't mean it's funnier to the next person.

"Popular" perhaps is a little vague but according to Nielsen ratings, Family Guy and Simpsons often trade places as the #1 show on Sunday nights but...

For the 2006-2007 Season | Family Guy ranked #71 out of 142 shows w/ an average of 8.20 million viewers per episode.

The Simpsons ranked #60 out of 142 shows w/ an average of 8.6 million viewers per episode.

========================

For the 2007-2008 Season | Family Guy ranked #84 out of 200 shows w/ a 2.8 in the 18/49 demo w/ an average of 7.940 million viewers.

The Simpsons ranked #83 out of 200 shows w/ a 3.8 in the 18/49 demo score w/ an average 7.950 millionviewers.

=========================

For the 2008-2009 Season | Family Guy ranked #69 w/ a 2.6 demo score & averaged 7.560 millionviewers.

The Simpsons ranked #77 w/ a 2.4 demo score & averaged 6.930 million viewers.

=========================

In the 2009-2010 Season | Out of 124 shows, Family Guy ranked #21 in the coveted 18-49 demo while Simpsons ranked #34and in number of viewers Simpsons ranked #61 while Family Guy ranked #53

=======================

In the 2010-2011 Season | The Simpsons finished #28 out of 141 shows in the 18-49 demographic while Family Guy finished #15.

Also out of 141 shows, Simpsons ranked #65 while Family Guy ranked #56 in number of viewers.

=======================

In the 2011-2012 Season | Out of 156 shows, Family Guyranked #19 in the 18-49 demographic & #63 out of 156 shows in total viewers.

The Simpsons ranked #33 in the 18-49 demographic & #69 in total number of viewers.

======================

For the 2012-2013 Season | Out of 152 shows, Family Guy ranked #16 w/ 3.6 in the 18/49 demo score and ranked #62 in total number of viewers w/ 6.943 million.

Out of 152 shows, The Simpsons ranked #31 w/ 2.9 in the 18/49 demo score and ranked #70 in total number of viewers w/ 6.274 million.

=======================

So according to the numbers (mostly via the Deadline website) for the past five seasons at least, Family Guy is more popular.

Six seasons ago, The Simpsons eeked out in front of Family Guy and Seven season ago, The Simpsons was more popular. Numbers after that are a little hard to come by but it's reasonable to assume The Simpsons ranked higher than Family Guy in FG's earlier seasons.

Is 10 a good age to watch family guy and The Simpsons?

No. There are quite a few dirty references and swearing, and material that is pretty much considered inappropriate for children under 13 or 14. 13 or 14 is a better age to watch Family Guy, whereas the Simpsons would be acceptable, in my opinion, at 12.


Which came first the show Simpsons or friends?

The Simpsons episode Treehouse of Horror XIV (which aired in November 2003 during Family Guy's cancellation) features a story entitled "Reaper Madness" in which Homer takes over the duties of being the Grim Reaper. Many Family Guy fans have claimed that it's hypocritical to suggest that Family Guy steals from the Simpsons when the story to this Simpsons episode is very similar to the Family Guy episode entitled "Death is a Bitch" in which Peter assumes the role of death. However, others point out that the story of a mortal taking on the duties of the Grim Reaper has been used several times before "Family Guy" or "The Simpsons". So in short, Family was first!
