    Family Guy and American Dad....Whats the difference?

    Okay, I was just watching Fox's Family Guy and American dad and wondered what the difference was between them.

    They all have the same sense of humor.

    and here are more comparisons I found...

    (In Family Guy there is....)
    A dominate father character (the show is centered around him)
    A mother (who plays the backbone for the father)
    A son who can seem to figure some things out
    A daughter
    A talking baby
    A talking dog

    (In American Dad there is....)
    A dominate father character (the show is centered around him)
    A mother (who plays the backbone for the father)
    A daughter who wears a bandanna on her head like meg does
    A son who tries to act cool
    A talking Alien (instead of a baby)
    A talking fish (Instead of a talking dog)

    More comparisons are...

    in both shows there 2 parents, a son, and a daugther....
    Plus in both shows the other two members of the family are things that can somehow talk when in real life they would not be able to ( a baby, a dog, an, alien, and a fish)

    Is American dad all that original?

    Yeah I know that but I think he should have created something that was not as similar to Family Guy.

    American Dad bores me, like most political satire does nowadays.

    well if it works, why not? If people are watching it, there is really no need to get more creative.

    I LOVE Family Guy, and the ONLY reason to watch Am Dad is for Roger the alien. It's Paul Lynde brought back to life!

    Re: Family Guy and American Dad....Whats the difference?

    I've tried AD twice and I can't watch it. The whole White American Male frightened of terrorism thing is boooring. And a daughter that is a liberal, whooo, that's original. Even the alien, who I thought I'd enjoy, I found lame.

    What bugs me isn't the similarities between these shows...it's that AD is not funny. Family Guy is funny most of the time...

    One is funny occasionally, one is utterly unwatchable...

    The difference is:

    Family Guy is absolutely hilarious ... and has Stewie ... perhaps the funniest animated character since ... FOREVER

    American Dad is not ...

    I'm not sure. I absolutely love Family Guy, but I just can't get into American Dad.

    Re: Family Guy and American Dad....Whats the difference?

    American Dad doesn't even have a chance of being funny because it's so similar to Family Guy, played immediately after Family Guy, but not funny in the same way as Family Guy. Family Guy ends and suddenly you're hearing the same voices but in an unfamiliar setting and it just dulls it for most people. Plus its political humor is forced and hardly in the form of something to laugh at even if you agree with something they say.

    Re: Family Guy and American Dad....Whats the difference?

    I've only seen one ep of American Dad and like O-nut, the Paul Lynde "tribute" was a scream!

    It took me a while to warm up to FAMILY GUY. Sometimes it does annoy me, but recently watching the reruns, Ive grown to like it. I guess initially I was put off because a pal of mine, who works with a certain Yellow family, said it was crap.

    Oh well...
