I think the answer you're going to get here will obviously be skewed.

In my opinion, Family Guy is usually funnier, but Futurama is beter at everything else.  Plot, characters, poignancy, continuity, etc, making it the better show by a wide margin.

The only thing Family Guy did better than Futurama was suck and blow.

Family Guy is hillarious. It's the type of show you can just watch and laugh at, without really needing to think at all. Humour aside, Family Guy really doesn't have anything to offer though.

Futurama, on the other hand - is also hillarious. However, it's not just humour it has to offer. It's a perfect mixture of comedy, drama, sci-fi, action, adventure and several other genre's. Almost every Futurama episode has something to offer besides comedy, which is what really makes it a good show. Matt Groening decided he was going to do something different, and he really succeeded.

In short, Family Guy and Futurama are both very funny shows - but Futurama is a better all-around show as it has so much more to offer it's viewers. So, Futurama gets my vote without a doubt.

That's it--baby jesus is weeping uncontrollably. Look what you did. Comparing Family Guy to Futurama is like comparing a turd rolling around on tile, depositing greasy brown stains that won't come out of the grout, to a g spot orgasm. Shame on you.

I'm glad at least I'm not the only person on the planet who doesn't like Family guy.

i like family guy, its really funny, but like everyone else has said, it has nothing else to offer. I don't give a damn about any of the charactors. Yeah i think stewie is funny but i don't care about what happens to him like i do the people on futurama. And for me to devote myself to a show i kinda have to feel for the charactors motivations and emotions.

Family Guy has more laugh-out-loud moments but doesn't have the strong plots and characterisation of Futurama... Futurama gets my vote  smile

I never really watched much Family Guy. I didn't think it was horribly funny either.

I watch a lot of Futurama. That's horribly funny   tongue *Votes Futurama*

[RANT]Why does Futurama vs Family Guy keep coming up?  Why doesn't anyone ever pit Futurama against some other show?  Why not a Futurama vs. Hogan's Heroes?  vs. Will & Grace?  vs. Monday Night Fotball?  vs. Dateline NBC?[/RANT]

Anyway, I vote Futurama.

Family guy is as funny as futurama is awesome, therefor comaring them would be a shambles, although IMO futurama is a better show.

family guy is not that crude there are often those jokes but there also at least 20 other jokes that are very funny although it does go for cheap laughs too often.

Let me think about this one for a fraction of a second... Futurama.  Family Guy is good for straight jokes, but I find that once you watch an episode once, there isn't anything left to see.

Well despite the fact that it's not haiku, having four lines, yeah, I agree with you

Awww, did I hurt baby's feelings?  I didn't say anything different than some of the previous posters.  If you're not mature enough to handle an opinion you don't like, maybe you should take a few years off to grow a little.

I have to echo the sentiments of the majority here. Family Guy is the funnier of the two shows. For non-stop hilarity, Family Guy is the clear choice. I love all the pop-culture references and the show's cutting-edge humor.

But in terms of character-development, plot and animation, Futurama clearly excels. As others have said, it is the better all-around show.

Both shows are great for what they offer and I see no reason why someone can't be a big fan of both.

SILENCE! I concur. Family Guy is a show where you watch to have fun.  Futurama makes you think, gives emotional depth, plus it is more enjoyable to watch.  smile
