What? Because they don't make good exports? Ridiculous! Every other culture is allowed to do its own thing in its television, but American television must remain neutral, is that it? And fail? Seriously? Those shows are extremely successful. 

 I claim they fail because the humour relies 100% on pop culture references to succeed; if someone fails to recognize the reference then the joke falls flat and dies.

STRANGE

Actually, given the number of really stupid Family Guy fans, and the vast number of references to literature, classic film, history, and high art, that such ignorant fans are unlikely to have ever come into contact with, I am thinking it succeeds perfectly fine whether people get the references or not. I find Family Guy's tendency to reference works much more intelligent and worthwhile than itself as its lone redeeming factor, in my eyes. Anything that can make brainless potheads or culturally challenged high schoolers recite quotes from Casablanca or sing tunes from My Fair Lady gets at least a mild applause from me.

Again, I really think you guys are using the term "fail" quite incorrectly. The show is insanely popular and very successful.

Since you used the plural - are you still including me in this?  Because I fail (see what I did there?) to see how I can use the term incorrectly when I say it fails for me.

They're saying that the show fails to appeal to them.  I don't see how that use is incorrect.

N00b C3PX = epic fail.

"Yeah, well, George says a lot of things..." a young 1997 xhonzi on RASSM

"They're my movies." -George Lucas. 19 people won oscars for their work on Star Wars (1977) and George Lucas wasn't one of them.

DuracellEnergizer didn't say it failed for him, he seemed to be saying it failed in general because of the type of humor used.

I shouldn't have used the plural "guys" in my second post to DuracellEnergizer, I actually didn't mean to indicate Fink to be included in "guys", I am not sure why I made it plural. Maybe I am just used to addressing multiple people in my posts.

Cool, now that we have that sorted, I think we can all agree that Family Guy = Massive Fail
