I hate to jump on the bandwagon on this one, but Family Guy did screw over the humor of the Simpsons. Because of Family Guy's asinine humor and huge fan base of morons, the Simpsons had to compete with that and thus dumbed down their humor for that... which meant that they dumbed down their stories as well. Shame that had to come to pass.

But at least theirs Futurama!

This... unfortuantely sad but true... Simpsons had to compete with Family Guy so started trying to be more like it which is kinda what killed its stories.... Now i like Family guy, but no-where near as much as Simpsons.

Futurama is defiantely better then both though.

I think The Simpsons stopped being funny long ago; I've loved family guy from the start. I enjoyed Simpsons as a kid, but (ironically) now I'm older I prefer family guy...by a vast, vast, vast majority. Could even go as far as to say I don't like the Simpsons lol

I am a Family Guy fan myself but I wouldn't ever say that the Simpsons sucked. Fox has a terrible reputation for cancelled shows, so much that people say 'it got Foxed' whenever a show does get cancelled now. I haven't watched the Simpsons in years either but then I stopped watching it nearly 12 years ago.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

It would be a shame for them to cancel it but I do see the points of having to dumb downthe show to compete with crap like Family Guy.

Some of the opinions so far confuse me.

The Simpsons sucks!!

Ever since Lisa turned into a preachy liberal who is always whining about this or that and Homer went from humorously slow to actually retarded this show has gone down hill.

So that's about what ... 7-10 years ago?

I still remember the episode were Lisa ruins Homers barbecue because SHE refuses to eat meat ... so by default EVERYONE has to stop. That's just pisses me off.

Imo South Park has the best balance of socio-political commentary and humor.

So I hope the Simpsons does get cancelled, its in what ... its 20+ Season?

Its seriously outdated and jumped the shark a long, long, long, long, long, long, time ago.

Also for pushing the envelope family guy is top notch, even its mediocre episodes are entertaining when compared to the Simpsons.

South Park rips off everyone else though and pretty much every episode is a parody of another shows episode or a movie.... Its got no origional ideas at all.. .Hell, they even did an episode called 'Simpsons Did It' which just proves that.

You are taking the p*ss right?

'South Park rips off everyone else' ... who is everyone else and how are they ripping them off?

Some examples would be nice when you make a blanket statement like that.

My interpretation of the Simpson's already did it was that they were taking the piss out of the criticism that they were just ripping Simpsons storylines (which was bogus to begin with) and pointing out that there are SOOOOOO many Simpsons episodes that of course certain similar themes are going to be touched upon from time to time.

But episodes like Imaginationland, Christmas critters, Somalian Pirates, Good Times With Weapons, You Have 0 Friends, Elimentary School Musical, to name but a few; are highly original and have nothing in common with anything else on T.V.

Plus, as I said, there social and political commentary is entirely on its own level for an 'entertainment' program.
