Use to watch it on occasion, but after Trey Parker and Matt Stone "exposed" it on South Park, it's a bit painful to watch...
from wikipedia:

When South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were questioned about the meanest thing ever said to them, Stone replied "When people say to me, 'God, you guys have one of the best shows on television. You and Family Guy.' That [expletive]ing hurts so bad." Parker agreed, "Very well said. It's such a kick in the balls."[65] Their opinions are showcased in the two-story arc "Cartoon Wars", the first part of which aired on April 5, 2006, and "part two" a week later on April 12.
In the DVD commentary, Parker and Stone state for the record their opinions on Family Guy. They say that, although they respect it for its fans and making people laugh, and having some smart humour, they ultimately hate the show itself and have absolutely no respect for its writing, given its overuse of gag humor. They compare the show's reputation among other animated shows to the way serious musicians feel about Justin Timberlake.
In the episode, fake Family Guy clips are shown depicting nonsensical cutaway jokes with no apparent relation to the plot. Three flashbacks occur, and references are made to David Hasselhoff, Knight Rider, Mr. T, Captain Kirk, and Captain and Tennille in less than a minute. Between these clips, the Griffin family is shown making comments about the same subject (Peter inviting his old sweetheart over for dinner, to Lois's disapproval), as if to point out that Family Guy needs to remind its audience what the actual plot is, given that the cutaway jokes are often in no way related to the story.
Eric Cartman justifies his hatred for Family Guy using words that echo Parker and Stone.
Don't you ever, ever compare me to Family Guy, you hear me Kyle? Compare me to Family Guy again, and, so help me, I will kill you where you stand! Do you have any idea what it's like? Everywhere I go: "Hey Cartman you must like Family Guy, right?" "Hey, your sense of humor reminds me of Family Guy, Cartman!" I am nothing like Family Guy! When I make jokes, they are inherent to a story! Deep situational and emotional jokes based on what is relevant and has a point, not just one random interchangeable joke after another!
—Eric Cartman, Cartoon Wars Part I
"Cartoon Wars Part II" aired April 12, 2006, revealing the Family Guy writers as manatees who take "idea balls" and send them down a shaft. A jumbled collection of ideas then become a Family Guy joke: for example, balls about "Mexico", "Gary Coleman" and "date" become a joke about Peter going on a date with Coleman in Mexico.
On the other hand, Stan Marsh and Kyle Broflovski, two of the series' more sympathetic characters, admit to being fans. The show even acknowledges the common criticism of South Park being too preachy, through a man who gives Kyle a lift: "Sure, I know it's just joke after joke, but I like that. At least it doesn't get all preachy and up its own [expletive] with messages, you know?"

^^I agree 100 % with Trey And Matt.

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

I really like Family Guy but it can get old after a while. It's one of those shows you need a break from every now and then.

it's not a feeakinng morals teacher, the point is to entertain and in that aim, it succeeds. I crack up often at this show. Stewie is one of the funniest characters ever. I'll respect anyones right not to like it (as long as it's for a decent reason, not everyone has the same humor) as long as they respect my right to like it.

It has fallen I a bit, but still makes me LOL at least twice an episode.

I agree %100, I don't give a crap if the jokes aren't related to the plot, as long as I laugh. Seriously, get off the high horse South Park, it's an f'ing cartoon. Sure it used to probably be better in the 3rd season than it is now, but it still has laugh out loud ridiculously funny moments and that's all I care about. I get my smarter humor from Futurama and older Simpsons and shows like that and I get my cheap laughs from Family Guy, I love it.

The best part is that it references 80's stuff. So if you were around that era AND watched A LOT of TV, you can totally relate to the humor.

The old dude is funny!!!! Remember that episode where the neighborhood was auditioning for the school musical and that old dude played: "I know what boys like...I know what guys want..." LOL!!!
