Family Guy Emmy Flyer: Offensive or Hilarious?

by at . Comments

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.

Family Guy Quotes

Peter: As we all know, Christmas is that mystical time of year when the ghost of Jesus rises from the grave to feast on the flesh of the living! So we all sing Christmas Carols to lull him back to sleep.
Bob: Outrageous, How dare he say such blasphemy! I've got to do something.
Man: Bob, there's nothing you can do.
Bob: Well I guess I'll just have to develop a sense of humour

Hi, I'm Wilford Brimley and I have diabetes. It hurts me to pee and it causes me to be short with my family. I can't sleep at night. The other day I stubbed my toe and took it out on the dog. And two weeks ago I ran out of vanilla ice cream and struck my wife. Then I find out my wife has been dead for six years. Who the hell did I hit?
