    South Park all the way. It’s humor caters to those who the satire behind it all. Trey Parker and Matt Stone cannot help it if you are not intelligent enough to pick up on what an episode is really saying. Read between the lines people. Family guy can be takem at face value, and is aimed at people who want a cheap laugh. Sout Park!

  • Andrew Robertson

    South Park by far, hands down, case closed. South Park is one of the best shows ever made. Its won an Emmy and the movie was nominated for an Oscar. The writers Matt Stone and Trey Parker aren’t just dumb comedians trying to get a laugh, they write about social and political issues and express their ideas through hilarious satire. It may not seem like it but most episodes are really high brow commentary on society. Family Guy isn’t really that funny at all. Most episodes dont even really have a plot. The only jokes Family Guy can seem to make are completely irrelevant to the story. Just random stupid gags which are easy to write and are only funny for like 4 seconds. Family Guy has been cancelled twice and has never won any awards. Its just brainless attempts at humor that dont provoke any thought whatsoever. The writers are just trying to fit as many stupid, random jokes in as possible. Seth Mcfarlane is funny but he is nothing compared to Matt Parker and Trey Stone. Seth can think of quick jokes but Matt and Trey can think of more complex jokes that are much funnier. They are better writers by far. Not to mention they have a 9 time Tony winning musical. I realize that doesn’t have much to do with South Park but I think it really speaks to their talent as writers. If the same guys who made on of the grossest, funniest, crudest shows on television can go and write one of the best musicals of the decade they must be doing something right. I’d like to see Seth Mcfarlane do something like that with his career. And as for you guys saying the animation sucks, it like that on purpose idiots. Obviously the could make better animations but thats how they started and thats what the fans love. The animation is secondary to the writing and thats what most people dont get. Matt and Trey want you to hear the humor, not focus on the fucking animation. All in all South Park is a much better show. Better rounded, funnier jokes, and actually meaningful. Family Guy can go to hell. Its going to get cancelled soon anyways.

      First off, Matt Stone and Trey Parker don’t do stand up comedy so how the hell can you say they can think of funny stuff that is more complex that Seth Macfarlane’s jokes? You really need to realize the comedic genius in Family Guy. Just because you think 5th graders cussing is funnier than well made jokes on Family Guy, doesn’t mean you know everything. Don’t get me wrong South Park is funny but in Family guy the jokes are much more thought out and usually the reason people don’t like Family Guy is because they can’t understand most of the jokes in it. You don’t have to bash Family Guy just because you don’t understand it. Also why would Family Guy get cancelled? The show is still thriving and is getting funnier each year. And how does South Park have “Better rounded, funnier jokes, and actually meaningful” ? How is Mr. Hankey the Christmas poo, the high towel Towely, and Oprah Winfrey’s vagina “better rounded” jokes than Family Guy? You really need to get your head out of your ass and realize how stupid the concept of South Park is compared to Family Guy. I like South Park, but not the fans. Your all a bunch of 12 year olds that doesn’t know what comedy is.

      • FamilyGuyCanSuckADick

        First off why the fuck would Matt Stone and Trey Parker need to do stand up. They make millions of dollars a year and have nothing to prove when it comes to being funny, not to mention I’m fairly sure they don’t give a shit about stand up comedy. Its funny that you think doing stand up comedy means you are funnier than people who don’t. Just because you do stand up comedy doesn’t mean you’re a comedic genius. Second of all if you think South Park is just “5th graders cussing” you actually literally don’t understand it. South Park legitimately has meaning behind their episodes. Whether it be global warming, the economy, politics, social and racial tolerance, or even just current events each episode has a message and strong opinions behind those messages. And what is there not to understand about Family Guy jokes. The Family Guy writers are manatees randomly choosing subjects to write jokes about. There is little to no thought behind the jokes of Family Guy. And what I mean by well rounded is the show in general. South Park is a story with a plot. Family Guy actually may as well just be stand up comedy. The jokes are unrelated to what little story there is and the jokes are mindless anyway. I don’t mean to be so hard on Family Guy because I enjoy it but Just think there is no comparison between the two. Family Guy is nowhere near the caliber of comedy that South Park is. I know i said this a bunch in the other comment i left but holy shit the genius behind Matt and Trey is astounding. They really are so good at what they do in writing. Seth MCfarlane is forgettable. And why do you think the concept of South Park is stupid? Seeing our fucked up world through the eyes of kids vs. a retarded family in which weird stuff happens to. Either way what does the concept of the show have to do with the quality of the show? And as for towley and mr. hankey they’re called jokes for a reason. You can’t possibly say that every character and episode of Family Guy is sophisticated writing. They’re comedy shows. There is bound to be some stupid humor in them. Honestly i dont need to argue i just enjoy it. The ratings and awards of South Park prove which show is better. There is boundless proof that South Park is both funnier and better liked than Family Guy just look at the dozens of online polls similar to this one. South Park hands down. And my mind will not be changed until Family Guy has 18 seasons and an Emmy. It actually still wouldn’t change. By the way they’re in 4th grade not 5th grade.

        • FamilyGuyCanSuckADick

          im the same person by the way i just made an account this time

          • Vitro

            Honestly you are incredibly immature. Your name is FamilyGuyCanSuckADick. Alright I have alot of things to say. First off, I never said that doing stand up comedy makes you funnier than someone else. I was pointing out that Seth Macfarlane does stand up comedy and you can’t say that Matt Stone and Trey Parker come up with more complex jokes than because they haven’t done stand up comedy. South Park is a funny show but do you really have to bash Family Guy so much? At least I pointed out that they are both funny shows. Also you say that people will forget Seth Macfarlane? You must be mentally retarded because Seth will be remembered for countless things while Matt Stone and Trey Parker will only be remembered for South Park. Seth made the movie Ted, there will be a Ted 2, American Dad, Dads, A Million Ways to Die in the West, Cleveland Show, Cosmos, and much more. So you have no right to say that he will not be remembered. In an occasional episode of South Park there will be points regarding recent events but I guess you haven’t watched Family Guy before because they discuss more recent events in the episodes than South Park. There jokes have much more thought into it and the episode plots are the best part cause you don’t know what to expect. In South Park, it is a bunch of 4th graders cussing and it shows nothing of what it’s like to be a kid. In 4th grade nothing was like this so you can’t really say that. That is just your opinion. Also another thing about stand up comedy is that Seth has done more than just writing jokes for a TV show and the fact that he has done stand up comedy makes him have more experience as a comedian. I didn’t say he was funnier but the fact that he has done more stuff than both South Park creators shows that he is more talented than both of them. One last thing is that the voices on Family Guy voice actors are much more talented than the South Park because they don’t have to use editing to make there voices sound better. I mean no disrespect so have a good day and fuck off.

          • Michael

            Vitro,

            Let me start by saying I have seen every episode of both South Park and Family Guy so I am knowledgeable with both shows. I would now like to point out the numerous flaws with your argument trying to defend Family Guy’s “superiority” to South Park.

            1.) “First off, I never said that doing stand up comedy makes you funnier than someone else. I was pointing out that Seth Macfarlane does stand up comedy and you can’t say that Matt Stone and Trey Parker come up with more complex jokes than because they haven’t done stand up comedy.”

            This statement is completely hypocritical and make no sense. You begin by saying stand up comedy has no connection with someone’s comedic abilities and then go on to say in the next sentence that Matt Stone and Trey Parker can’t be as funny/sophisticated as Seth Macfarlane because they don’t do stand up.

            2.) “South Park is a funny show but do you really have to bash Family Guy so much? At least I pointed out that they are both funny shows. Also you say that people will forget Seth Macfarlane?”

            Quickly saying that South Park is a funny show does not give you any extra credibility, or make you look any more mature, especially with your excessive swearing and the fact that you go on later in your unorganized statement to bash South Park. Hypocritical yet again.

            3.) “In South Park, it is a bunch of 4th graders cussing and it shows nothing of what it’s like to be a kid.”

            The show, which you previously stated was funny by the way, is not a bunch of fourth graders cussing. These children are creatively used as a tool to view issues regarding our society through the eyes of kids. This dynamic is what makes South Park so hilarious. And the average fourth grader is not an innocent baby so you can not possibly argue that all children are angels at this age. In fact most are not.

            4.) If one of your main arguments for Family Guy is that the voices are better, you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

            5.) You claim to watch South Park, but in your first argument you referred to the children as fifth graders, which is not correct….

            6.) Trey Parker and Matt Stone are not just well renown for SP. They also are the creators of the hit musical The Book of Mormon which (correct me if I’m wrong) has won 9 Tony Awards, and the movie Team America. They are also well accomplished like Seth Macfarlane.

            7.) The topic of Family Guy’s jokes being more thought out is more opinionated than these other ridiculous arguments you’ve made. However, I respectfully disagree. I feel while Family Guy may have more jokes within a given episode, South Park’s jokes contain more substance and always pertain to the plot. Family has some very clever jokes, but they often stray away from the story. I still find these hilarious, but I just prefer South Park’s style. The point being, your argument for these differing jokes is a meager opinion, with no evidence to back it up, and therefore making it worthless for you to even mention.

            I have no problem with someone expressing their opinion to defend either of these shows as their favorite. In fact, when I was younger I also used to prefer Family Guy’s style of humor However, don’t go on a forum and try to formulate some bullshit argument that has no credible facts to back it up like some know-it-all toddler. Do some research. And I now leave you with a great quote from Gary the Morman of SP…
            “You got a lot of growing up to do kid. Suck my balls.”

            Have a good day

          • Vitro

            Listen, my points are valid but apparently you are to ignorant to realize that. How are these not facts? Of course a lot of it is opinions but the fact that I pointed out multiple facts does not mean you have the right to say that. I commented on his post because he is an ignorant South Park fan. Every South Park fan acts like they are all that and seem to hate Family Guy and Seth Macfarlane. I don’t understand why they can’t be a little more friendly because obviously you aren’t friendly at all. A lot of what I said are facts. Seth has done more stuff and has done stand up comedy.I never said who was funnier.All I said was that Seth has done much more in the world of comedy and that would make him more experienced, not funnier. You say I am a “know-it-all toddler” because you don’t like my opinion. The other kid pointed out that South Park’s jokes are more well thought out. That is an OPINION and my statement was an OPINION. Yo u honestly need to grow up if you are going to be so immature about this. I started watching South Park a couple weeks ago and did not know they are in 4th grade, so sorry about the error. Just saying, I didn’t even know who Matt Stone and Trey Parker were and I have seen a couple episodes over the past couple of years. I have known Seth Macfarlane because of countless things over the years. Another thing, it IS a bunch of 4th graders cussing. When I was in 4th grade nothing was like that. That is not the world from a kids eyes because I never remember talking about dildos and condoms with other kids when I was in 4th grade. I’m not trying to look “more mature” because I pointed out that I enjoy South Park as well as Family Guy. I just think that Family Guy is a funnier, better mad show and that is my opinion so you need to grow up because you obviously don’t know what an opinion is. I don’t think Family Guy is “superior” to South Park, I just think it is funnier. One last thing. How is the statement where I pointed out Seth does stand up comedy hypocritical? I admit it comes off a little stupid but I meant that they aren’t as EXPERIENCED as Seth in comedy because they haven’t done as much “different types” of comedy as Seth Has done. Have a good day and may the force, not be with you.

          • Michael

            So because Seth does standup, which somehow makes him more experienced than matt and trey, (it doesn’t… sarcasm), Family Guy must be better than South Park? Also, if you are in fact just stating an opinion about Family Guy being funnier than South Park, why do you get so butt-hurt over me disagreeing with your opinion? What makes your opinion better than mine? Like I said before, Im fine with you having an opinion, but you need to realize not everyone will agree with it. Especially when you have still given any logical reasons as to why you prefer.

            Here, Ill give you an example…
            “In my opinion, I prefer Family Guy over South Park because I can relate to the dysfunction in the Griffin Family/the cutaways always crack me up/etc…

            Learn to structure an organized argument bud.

          • Vitro

            I think Family Guy is funnier and more entertaining than South Park. That is my point. I’m just here to have a friendly argument with other people.

          • jason bladzinski

            I hate to bust your bubble but Trey and Matt will definitely be remembered longer. You see, for the awards they have one alone put them on a list of exclusivity. Not to mention they have’s play on Broadway that for years now has been sold out daily, and they won a crapload of Tony Awards for that play. They have also made movies that had nothing to do with South Park. Do some research before you make such claims because UT just makes you look like an idiot.

          • Vitro

            I didn’t even know who Matt Stone and Trey Parker was until I started watching South Park. I knew who Seth Macfarlane was before I started watching Family Guy. Seth Macfarlane made Ted, A Million Ways to Die in the Wild West, Family Guy, American Dad, Cleveland Show, made and album, hosted the Oscars and much more. I think he will be remembered more.

          • jason bladzinski

            Well that proves nothing. You think family guy is superior to south park so obviously you are deficient in higher cultural knowledge so I’m not surprised you didn’t know of trey and Matt. Also, Trey and Matt aren’t as full of themselves as Macfarlane, so they don’t plaster their names over everything they are involved in. Trey and Matt would never be asked to host the Oscar’s because they have bashed so many Hollywood celebrities for their nonsense that people ate afraid of the funny yet true revelations they would make. Macfarlane hosted the Oscar’s yet Trey and Matt have one a few, which do you think is greater?

      • jason bladzinski

        You sir are a moron!

  • kaylum wilson

    they are both good shows but i choose family guy

  • LOLA

    I THINK THAT FAMILY GUY IS THE BEST HUMOR BECAUSE IT I CLEVER THAN SOUTH PARK ANY WAY

  • South park fan

    South park is the best tv show ever and nothing NOTHING!!! Can beat that kind of comedy!!!!

  • both

    I feel like that both bring their own humor watching them both brings me a comedic balance between edgy and gags

  • right

    We can all agree cleveland show was horrible

  • Wi

    family guy is a lazy show that lacks any tact. ALL the good jokes are stolen and then lazily shoehorned into each episode, if you seriously cant even spot a single stolen joke in a single family guy episode then you’re an idiot. Seth is a useless hack.

    South park is infinitely more clever, family guy isnt clever at all a monkey could come up with better. Nobody could replace the creators of south park, yet seth is such a useless tool that his shitty ideas can be made up by anyone. If these shitty idead of his seriously make you laugh…then that literally means you lack even the basic level of intelligence to think of shitty jokes yourself ^.^

    Ownd.

  • Zach

    South Park is amazing. The latest episodes have been hits or misses but overall the quality is still almost just as good as it was ten years ago. And that’s seventeen years into writing the show. Family Guy is into it’s 12th season, and the flashbacks aren’t that funny anymore. Family Guy has also never tackled topics/subjects like religion and race, or censorship extremely well. It kind of seems like Seth only takes the topics at face value, whereas when South Park explores these, Matt and Trey go much deeper, ending up making a much more complex satire. This makes their satires much more human and in general deeper than Family Guy’s. The characters are also infinitely better-written. I don’t hate Family Guy’s characters, but I feel South Park’s characters have been much more consistent. Therefore to me they’re so much more enjoyable and realistic, which makes for a lot more humorous and dramatic (without being cheesy) moments. I think if Seth tried a little harder, it could be just as good of a show.

  • Finlay M

    what the hell is south park? (i am english)

  • LesbianHair

    I demand a recount!

  • Paola

    To me Family Guy is kinda lame, there might be veeeeeery few episodes I like, but few. South Park always touches strong topics that actually makes me think critically. It’s funny as hell but at the same time I see the valuable messages they send. I understand that their humour is crude and not anyone might like, but in my case I love it!

    • frank

      YESSS, not much critical thinking is ever necessary for the most complicated jokes on family guy….but South Park’s exaggerated views and veiled satire can sometimes require a critical thinking level that a lot of people cannot reach LOL

  • SwaggyBilbo

    South park is my vote because its more funny and has more actual jokes i watch family guy too but i vote for south park because family guy is funny because of random flashbacks that make no sence and it has a small storyline which like the first couple of episodes make no changes to future episodes but south park takes some trips down memory lane just like family guy also has before with stewie’s time machine which is pretty cool in my opinion but south park is just less random and more funny :D

  • Hannah

    Family guy is awesome and funny but South Park is preachy offensive and unfunny most of the time although there are a few good episodes and I loved the movie. I still vote family guy.

  • Mistercheese18888

    The constant sick jokes in Family Guy make me want to puke. South Park’s hilarious and the original comedy show. Family Guy is like it’s retarded half-cousin twice removed that everyone feels sorry for so the family decided to pay attention to it more. Trey Parker and Matt Stone decided to make a show about four eight year olds going on hilarious misadventures like forcing a horde of hippies out of South Park, sneaking into the mall on Black Friday in order to get an Xbox One before a violent crowd rips the mall to shreds, trying to stop terrorists and evil imaginary characters from destroying our imagination, and many more wacky episodes. There might be swearing, but it’s the best show ever!
    Now all of you Family Guy fans, RESPECT CARTMAN’S AUTHORITAH!

    • Vitro

      Dude you honestly may be mentally retarded. The constant “sick jokes” is in South Park, not Family Guy. Family Guy’s episodes are well thought out and have a great plot. One South Park episode had a car you drove by sticking a rod up your butt and in your mouth then moving back and forth to ride it and you call Family Guy sick? BIRD IS THE WORD.

      • Dominick

        I think it’s pointless to even argue with the people on here. All they see is the dumb “easy” humor in family guy and not the jokes as a whole and their true meaning which makes them a lot more funny. Sure they throw in some child humor, fart jokes ect….but mixed with more sophisticated thought out humor. To each their own I guess. People with an IQ above 100 can enjoy family guy for what it really is.

        • frank

          that ‘true meaning’ you speak of is actually easy humor to those in the range above 130 iq…which south park is geared towards

          • Dominick

            I completely understand the humor in south park and said above I can’t pick a winner. But those saying Family guy isn’t as sophisticated clearly aren’t understanding the hidden messages in the show for whatever reason. It could even be that it’s much easier to hate on the big dog. As someone else said above perfectly, Family guy puts more humor into one liners than you’ll find in an entire episode of South Park. However, each has their own unique style and positive points and there is no clear winner, it just comes down to who thinks they’re smarter than the other and personal preference.

          • Vitro

            I agree with you. It seems like people who don’t understand clever humor seem to be pretty stupid. I just think Family Guy is funnier, more sophisticated, and much more thought out than South Park. I think South Park is funny but I like Family Guy much more. MY OPINION 1) Family Guy 2) Futurama 3) South Park 4) The Simpson’s. I like The Simpson’s old episodes that’s why I voted them last. :)

  • GOOGLEROCKZ

    Family Guy!!!!

  • anyone

    South park is just awesome.

  • Princess Kenny the 2nd

    I think I am going with South park because unlike family guy, the show doesn’t offend a lot of of people because they are making fun of everyone, not just a race or a group.Family guy actually managed to offend a lot of people and even me. So yeah go on about how the kids are annoying but you are not going to change my mind. Now, I going to go back to be a anime princess. XD

    South Park actually has funny jokes, and clever humor, which Family Guy doesn’t have. South Park also has life lessons, which make really good points. South Park isn’t all about the humor.

  • TD23ASUS

    How is it possible to even imagine that one is better than the other? Honestly, they are equally F***ING AWESOME

  • Jordan

    South park over Family guy any day . South Park is a classic

  • Dominick

    People who say Family Guy is all shallow humor must be shallow themselves. Family guy is full of sophisticated controversial humor along with all the dumb humor. Most people just don’t understand the more complicated stuff. When they were walt disney characters and they beat up mort for being a jew…did anyone know why? or did you just think it was kind of funny that they beat up mort because he was jewish? That’s just one small example I can think of off the top of my head, maybe not the best example…but there are tons of references like that in each episode. The characters each have meaning as well. Family guy isn’t afraid to bash religion, government and many other controversial topics…and that’s what i enjoy most about it. They do just enough to be allowed to air on t.v…if the creators really had their way and could do whatever they wanted…oh boy…

    They relate to real people and real events while adding humor, some dumb and some more sophisticated. I enjoy both shows and can’t pick one that i like more…i see the humor in both of them for what they are in their own unique ways.

    • frank

      no, family guy is not nearly as sophisticated….south park is of a greater calibre of sophistication..sorry if you do not see the ironies but south park is pure genius while family guy has dumb humor with some intelligence that can be understood by a lot of people….most would not understand the deepest levels of satire and bias elimination that South Park is…due to the fact that most people cannot see past their own viewpoint so they write off the exaggerated views that they dislike…instead of recognizing them for what they are

      • Dominick

        Family guy bashes at everything you’ve said South Park does as well, difference is episodes are more well thought out taking months while south park takes weeks. I’ve literally seen some of the dumbest episodes of south park with the dumbest plots. Sure it can be funny but it’s nothing that sophisticated. Family guy is more than just the fart jokes thrown in here and there..they both offer plenty of those. Family guy tends to bash several things per episode like different people, different events, religions and lots more while mixing dumb humor with more sophisticated humor.

      • Dominick

        Both shows make fun of dumb people who think they’re smart….apparently family guy took that to a level that reaches clear over your head.

    • frank

      also that scene with mort due to antisemitism by disney is not nearly level of intelligence as the humor displayed by South Park…in south park there are inside jokes EVERYWHERE and satires of satires
      Basically South Park makes fun of not only the stupid…but also those who think their smart

  • Reginald

    I think there is an IQ gap between these two fan bases. A lot of people don’t really get Family Guy’s humor; maybe on a superficial level, but there are multiple layers to it. South Park is infantile in comparison; there is no subtlety to its humor. For me, It barely manages to evoke the slightest chuckle. The writing is insipid and its target audience is probably around the same age as its characters. Family Guy delivers more humor in one-liners than South Park does in entire episodes.

  • jason bladzinski

    It’s not really even a contest. South Park is far superior to Family Guy! The jokes on family guy are all interchangeable. You could mix them up, place them in different episodes, and they would have no effect on the plot. South Park does not stoop to such lowly tactics to get a laugh out of you, nor do they compromise a characters integrity to fit in a cut away joke. South Park deals with social commentary and satire in a way Family Guy never has. Let’s look at it this way: was South Park ever cancelled? No. Has Family Guy had a movie? No. Has Family Guy won an Oscar? No. Has Family Guy won any Emmy’s? No. Has Family Guy ever won a Peabody Award? No. Buff said.

This rivalry exists, not only on this website, but in real life. The creators of both animated series have taken numerous jabs at each other.

Family Guy is know for its random cut scenes and is famous for its awkwardly long scenes filled with repetition. The characters Stewie and Peter are, by far, the most popular characters in the show. They are also usually the source for much of the humor. The storylines in Family Guy are normally very random and tend to make fun of TV shows, movies and musicals from the 80′s but some episodes are based around more contemporary issues and events.

South Park is all about about timing and its storylines revolve around more current events, hastened by the creator’s ability to put together each episode in only a few days. Each character has their own unique brand of humor but Cartman is pegged as the source for the most despicable (and memorable) moments in comedy.

For no other reason than preference, we’re going with Family Guy on this one. Both shows are hilarious in there own way, but Family Guy brings out the most laughs for us.
