    One of the lamest Simpsons, ever.

    An utterly-disappointing Cleveland Show.

    A wildly-uneven Family Guy. Had its moments, but . . .

    Flipping channels I caught Nelson saying that the classroom computer had less memory than his stroked out uncle.

    I thought that was hilarious, but the Steeler game was starting on another channel.

    A very weak week for "Animation Domination"

    The talking bear sucks, The Simpsons have been a letdown since Season 7 and Family Guy is running its course with me. Maybe I'm still pissed over KOTH's departure. But The Cleveland Show is aweful!!!

    I laughed about twice through the whole run and spent most of it trying not to fall asleep.

    I'm glad others thought it was weak too. I thought maybe I was losing it.

    I can't imagine the Cleveland show lasting more than a season. The Simpsons have been unfunny to me for a number of years.

    Wow, no love for the first half of Simpsons, at least?

    "Text uncle! Text uncle!"

    Milhouse: "I'm only in month one of a 60-month plan!"

    Maybe it was watching the episode with a teacher who confiscates cell phones on a daily basis, but I thought it was pretty solid. Tapered off at the end, but most Simpsons do these days.

    And the first 10 minutes of Family Guy had me crying I was laughing so hard. Quagmire/internet porn, Peter fucking a Kathy Ireland cardboard cutout and Peter turning Macbeth into something out of Star Wars. "My Shakespeare isn't very good."

    Agreed, BYH. The first two Simpsons this year have really been pretty good.

    The first Family Guy was really good. Yesterday's was ok. Loved the part when Quagmire came out of his house after days of being in, and says, "hey why are the moving vans at Cleveland's house?"

    Alright, I'll agree on some of those. The Quagmire internet thing was funny, though not as funny as I thought it'd be when they set the joke up. The idea was funnier than the execution of it. I did laugh my ass off when he was standing outside his house, turned and his left arm was all muscly.

    I also laughed at the bit about the spin off.

    But, they already did a "the family pretends to be Jewish" episode. Chris becomes Jewish so he can get better grades or something, and Peter gets all into it and joins the church and everything. A lot of the jokes in this one were pretty similar, too. In that one I think Peter's father sends a group of vigilante nuns to turn Peter back to Catholicism. This time he appeared as a ghost to do it.

    How lame is that?

    Once again: Family Guy needs to be 15 minutes long. MacFarlene's ideas just don't stretch out for 30 minutes...ESPECIALLY now that he's writing two other shows.

    The first half of FG is almost always outstanding. Then it just hits a wall and sputters to the finish line.
