    In recent discussions of Family Guy, a controversial issue has been whether people should or should not watch the television show. On the one hand, some argue that Family Guy is pure entertainment and that nothing is inappropriate with the show. From this perspective, I find it completely absurd that people actually find it acceptable to engage with such a vulgar show. On the other hand; however, others argue that it is a cruel show that incorporate crude humorless jokes. In the words of James Cornish, one of this view’s main proponents, “…the show’s humor transcends off- colour and decides to be full on offensive for the sake of it” (par. 12). According to this view, Family Guy has humorless jokes that are in no way comical. In sum, then, the issue is whether the show should or should not be viewed. My own view is that Family Guy is a show that should not be watched by any age group because of the derogatory wisecracks and foul language. The only concerns of the television show is the amount of viewers as well as the ratings.
