I didn't really find that video funny since it only focused on poking fun at the sons and fathers... and talking things.
Oh and The Cleveland Show is Mike Henry's show. All Seth MacFarlane did was help get it running.
Out of the three Shows Seth Macfarlane is known for I like Family Guy the most and American Dad the least but I do see why they're people who like American Dad the most out of the three.

The only cartoon on FOX that I didn't think was so great was King of the Hill but it had it's fans.

:facepalm: Not this again...
I'm not saying King of the Hill is a God awful show. I just didn't think it was great. I'm not saying it's bad or that it's crap. I just don't find it that entertaining.

The key word here is I. Comprende? I'm not saying what I think is fact.

Nothing in that video indicated anything negative. It's essentially like telling someone "candy has sugar". If formula is a sin, mathematicians should not be suffered to live. Originality is no substitute for potency.

And yes I think The Simpsons needs to go. It really hasn't been that funny for years, and there are such huge gaps between parts that make me laugh, its just not worth it anymore.

I was 9 years old sitting at my dads feat when that show came out, and truth be told I cant tell you the last time i saw a new ep. It just turned into something people watch out of habit I think. Maybe its time to let it go. If it went ten years ago it would have been a legend now its just noteworthy because it lasted so long on a network that ax's genra tv like henry the 8th on a bad day.

funny thing is that a lot of the newer episodes (Well, not the last one I saw, which had Seth Rogen guest voicing) really seem to be a random collection of ideas & concepts glued together with no coherency at all


Seriously, I saw two more recent episodes a while back & I couldn't figure out what the hell was going on

Sums up my thoughts quite nicely.

It still makes me laugh, even though it doesn't have the emotional pull of its peak. I just hope the final episode--whenever that may be--ends on a good note. I literally grew up watching that show (maybe Tracy Ullman shorts, but Xmas "Open Fire" for sure).

After the tenth season, they should've ended. Now, it's not as good as the earlier seasons... Seasons 1-7 are probably the most famous seasons ever made. "The Simpsons Movie", though, was a good rescue, but didn't help the TV show that much.

Excuse me while I continue to facepalm since you're still not getting that how I feel about the show isn't a general fact and responding to that post three months later.

I don't like the show. I didn't think it was great. Get over it.

It seems that Southpark is the sole show that didn't jump the shark.

The Simpsons is my favorite show on television, but it has to stop, there are simply too many episodes for it to keep going year after year. I doubt it will until one of the voice actors calls it quits.
It seems that Southpark is the sole show that didn't jump the shark.

It almost did somewhere between seasons 7, 8, and 9; for some reason those three seasons have my least amount of favorites but that's just me.

King of the Hill was HORRIBLE. I don't have the slightest idea how anyone can enjoy that.
