Family Guy seriously declined between 2009 and 2010, and is about as low as it can go.
I don’t see how it can last much longer with the boring crap they’re doing now.

I used to love this show. Still love the older episodes, but it seems to me something is missing. Like the creators have so many other projects going on their attention to this one has declined. It’s just not funny anymore. I can laugh at just about anything, from funerals to abused animals to starving children, but this show has lost it. Cancel this piece of crap!
