I don't watch cartoons.
You should, some of the best comedies around are cartoons. Archer, Futurama and Adventure Time are some particularly good ongoing shows.

Seriously, I am such a hater toward Adventure Time, that show is full of liquid ***. It is so bad, I can't find a proper metaphor to describe it. Argh! How is it even liked, it sucks so bad? Enough with the rant. I have watched almost all of the Mentalist episodes and I have watched all the ONCE shows, except for the two latest ones (don't have the time!).

The Big Bang Theory
vs.
How I Met Your Mother

(I like the BBT)
What about you?

Definitely The Big Bang Theory. I only started watching it a short while ago, and I'm already hooked. We can record them on our TV, so when I'm not on Armor Games, I can just watch a whole bunch at one time.

I've seen very few sitcoms that are as consistently funny as HIMYM. Not to say BBT isn't funny; I just don't find it as consistently funny as HIMYM.

You have no idea what humor is, do you? Or what a good TV show is, for that matter. Adventure time is just a parallel universe to ours. Everyone acts the same and the same things are going on.

With all due respect, I don't think that crap is anywhere close to humorous.
So annoying -_-
Next, okay, I will do cartoons...
Family Guy
vs.
American Dad
I will put my own vote for AD.

I'll go with Family Guy, because it had consistent laughs during its golden years (seasons 1-7) and it was very cleverly written. Not to say American Dad wasn't ever funny or cleverly written, I've just found there to be fewer laughs per episode than Family Guy (I don't find Roger funny, he takes things too far).

Family Guy...

Though they have too many racist jokes and references to other shows it's really funny xD

Family Guy
vs.
American Dad

Neither is particularly good or original or well-written. Family Guy is cheap shock/pop culture humor with no regard for context or complexity. It's very lowest-common-denominator for a show that touts itself as so edgy and irreverent. Newsflash: you have to have an actual point to be edgy.

South Park is the same show done right, The Simpsons is the same show done first.

It used to be much more clever in its golden days, but in the past 5 years it's only been going downhill. It looks to me almost as if they're trying to appeal to a dumber audience, and it really reflects upon the quality of the show. Now all the "laughs" are cheap and obvious and it's almost unwatchable for those of us who have been watching since the earlier days.

How is South Park done right and Family Guy done wrong? Disregarding Family Guy's decline in quality in the past half-decade.
