Family Guy Emmy Flyer: Offensive or Hilarious?

by at .

Family Guy has taken home five Emmy Awards, but never one for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Will Seth MacFarlane and company change that via their latest campaign flyer? It's unlikely, but it's at least creating quite a stir around the Internet. You can see why:

Family Guy Emmy Campaign Flyer

Pretty much on par for a series whose Family Guy quotes take aim at every religion, race and party? We'd say so. But not all agree. Says one anonymous television executive to E! News:

"While I think Family Guy is a genuinely funny show. We all - including this 'Brentwood Jew' - need to think twice about this kind of humor. Stereotyping any particular ethnic group is just not cool and can lead others (with the wrong intentions) to feel a certain license to take shots. Surely Seth [MacFarlane] has better stuff than this."

Where do you stand on this Family Guy flyer?

    I find this hilarious after all it’s Family Guy! I know that some people happen to be more sensitive than others. I love this show and I never worry about missing it since it’s recorded as part of my PrimeTime Anytime on my Hopper. Then Dish goes and steps up the game another notch with the Auto Hop feature. I don’t like commercials and having to manually skip commercials doesn't thrill me. Now I can choose to skip commercials or let them play on my PrimeTime Anytime shows. One of my coworkers at Dish showed me the Auto Hop functions how it skips ads. This isn’t an automatic feature, and I need to confirm if I want to skip commercials before I watch each recording. No more over fast forwarding and I can save the life on the batteries on my remote.
