WTF? Bob's Burgers is one of the funniest shows on TV right now.

/they'll say "ahhh Topsy" at my aaaautopsy!


Agreed- Bob's Burgers freaking rocks.  Definitely some of the 'freshest' comedies on the fox lineup.

tnpir: I'll join in the chorus of those who say Family Guy and American Dad are great, but the Cleveland Show was pretty bad.

Although this episode of Family Guy last week with Peter going "ferral" was absolute shiat.


Family Guy is mediocre. It occasionally recaptures the quality of its pre-cancellation run but mostly it's just uninspired shock/endurance humor.

American Dad episodes range from pretty good to freakin' amazing and it's my 4th favorite animated TV series (behind the Venture Bros, Archer and Bob's Burgers).

I've watched maybe 3 episodes of the Cleveland Show so I really can't comment on it but my impression is that it was terrible.

It appears I'm (as usual) in the minority.  I like both The Cleveland Show and Bob's Burgers.

There are shows I don't like of course, but I don't dislike them enough to wish them off the air like some people.

Everyone has different tastes.  As an example, I never really cared for Firefly.

I do like American dad, but I feel it's lost its way somewhat. They seem to have removed Stan from the CIA. They occasionally reference it but he hangs out at home all the time, just like Peter in FG - neither really have jobs. This is fine, but sometimes Stan gets in situations that he should be able to deal with, but the writers 'forget' the fact he highly trained.

I also like the Cleveland show and will be sad if it is cancelled.

American Dad has been on a roll lately, especially the episodes with Patrick Stewart .

Family Guy was been hit or miss, but more hit than miss lately. The Anne Murray episode was the highlight of the season, especially since I never would have expected Anne Murray to show up on Family Guy.

I used to watch The Cleveland Show sporadically, but I stopped watching after the terrible Die Hard parody.

Bob's Burgers took a while to find it's groove, but it's consistently good, and the kids are the best part of the show, especially Tina. The Goonies-inspired "Taffy Butt" episode made me a fan.

Even on their worst days, none of these shows were close to 1/10th as horrible as Allen Gregory was. How many dicks did Jonah Hill have to suck to get that piece of sh*t made?

I find the love/hate relationship with Bob's Burgers in this thread hilarious. I think the divide is between people who only saw the first couple episodes (admittingly mediocre) or are biased against the animation style, versus those who have actually been watching the show.

Honestly the show is so much more clever than anything else in the Fox animation block right now.

I don't think American Dad and Family Guy are similar at all. Somewhere around season 3, American Dad became brilliant and seemingly no one noticed. It doesn't use cutaways like Family Guy, And when it does a pop culture reference, it actually makes fun of it, unlike Family Guy, which will take a scene and just replace a main character with Peter and do nothing funny with it.

Lots of love here for "plagiarisimo di plagiarisimo". Maybe I should start watching.

Like Burr said, start at Stan of Arabia I (it's a two-parter). It's about halfway through season 1. The first few episodes are kinda weak. I didn't start watching until the end of season 3 because the first few episodes put me off, very stereotypical and boring, but after that it really hits its stride and just keeps going.


I dunno. It happened to be on when I got home. Episode where the dad tries to get a drunk black friend married so the dad can be a best man, with a side plot of the alien buying magic shorts.

It was not good. Turned it off because it was so bad. I'll give it another shot, but wow, this episode was brutal.

I remember watching the 'Ricky Spanish' episode and howling with laughter while a sinking feeling in my gut kept feeling like Werner Herzog had a hand in it all. And then he had that voice over...

American Dad is by far and away the best one out of its contemporaries right now. The episode where they roast Roger is pretty good.


The 'Alien' reference alone made it great.

I think The Cleveland Show is passably entertaining, but I won't mourn its passing. I actually kind of feel the same way about Family Guy and to a lesser extend American Dad. None of them seem that hilarious most of the time anymore, and I honestly don't know if its the show's decline or I've just tired of the schtick.

As for Bob's Burgers, I freaking love that show. Along with Archer, they are my favorite animated series currently. I was hesitant to give BB a chance due to the the animation style, but it has grown on me. It's the kids that make that show, imo.

scottydoesntknow: Shazam999: Tremolo: Just keep the writers the hell away from American Dad, it's getting downright sublime.

AD is one of the best shows on TV, period.  "Rapture's Delight" will be a classic forever and needs to be put into the Smithsonian.

Every single Christmas Special has been fan-farking-tastic. My favorite (which actually beat out the Rapture episode) was "For Whom the Sleigh Bell Tolls". That one had me rolling the whole time.


"Stanny Slickers 2: The Legend of Ollie's Gold"  is an absolutely brilliant episode.  Great show.  I'll just pile on here that I never found Cleveland particularly funny.

I like Seth's cartoons but three shows in one night is just too much.  Cleveland is definitely the weakest so it should go.  Personally, I like American Dad the best and don't even watch every new episode of Family Guy any more.
