The Worst And Best Characters

How would you rate the characters of Family Guy?

Every character on Family Guy has has some pretty terrible moments. That's the nature of the show, and it wouldn't be funny if characters didn't have flaws or get into shenanigans every once in a while. There are also way too many characters to analyze every single person on the show. That said, most fans could probably rank their top 25 characters. 

Most of us know how we'd rank the Griffins, but what about Trish Takanawa, or God? Where would Death fall in the ranks--or Santa, for that matter? Many people love old recurring guests like the Mayor and Peter's boss just because of their voice talent, but what about the actual characters themselves?

Would you agree with this ranking of the top 25 most popular Family Guy characters on the show? If not, how would you rearrange them--or who would you choose as a more popular character? Tell us in the chat.

Lois Will Stay Through The Laughs

If Family Guy loses its edge, Alex Borstein says she'll call it quits

When thinking about leaving the show, Alex Borstein of Family Guy has a pretty simple test for the show to pass or fail: If it continues to be fresh and funny, and the writers can continually deliver, she'll stay on to voice Lois Griffin. If she's not "laughing out loud," though, watch out--she might take her leave!

Borstein is a hilarious actor but did you know that she also works as a staff writer and producer on the show? It's really no wonder why. Anyone who has seen Borstein in action, such as her character on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, already knows how talented and funny she is. Lois has always been my favorite character on the show, and as soon as I saw Borstein in an action role I knew why. She's just got that comedic spark that I love.

What do you think of Borstein's litmus test of whether or not to continue with the show? Do you have your own test for whether or not to stick with the show? Share it in the chat!

Family Guy Calls Today Show "Nonsense People"

The Today Show took it in stride

When you get roasted by a show like South Park, SNL or Family Guy, the most graceful thing you can do is laugh along like you normally would at a roast. Folks who protested their mockery have only been met with more mockery in kind, so it makes sense that most people simply laugh along and don't take it personally.

Al Roker was recently one of these people. He celebrated, saying, "Yes! We made Family Guy!" when Peter and the gang recently poked fun at the Today Show. Peter said, "I saw it on the Today Show," while arguing with Lois. Lois's hilarious response? "Second hour with Hoda and Savannah, or third hour with the nonsense people?" The quick quip gave show runners a good laugh.

The Worst of the Worst

What's the worst thing your favorite character has done?

Analyzing our favorite characters and finding out everything from what zodiac sign they'd be (sure, Stewie's likely a Scorpio, but I bet he's a Capricorn rising!) to their favorite color is fun pastime for many people. We love to think about what the worst and best things they've ever done are only to be shocked when they do something even more outrageous in the future.

Recently there was a breakdown of the worst things that Brian has ever done and there have been some doozies! Brian is a terrible father who's landed people in jail, lusted after underage characters, let people die and more. He's also always lusting after Lois, which is pretty rotten considering he's supposed to be Peter's BFF. 

What do you think the worst thing Brian has ever done is? Take it a step further and tell us what you think the worst thing each character in Family Guy has ever done in the chat!

Your Weirdest Family Guy Theories

Which ones sound plausible to you?

Fan theories are so much fun to explore, unless a theory or two seems so real, so plausible, that it ruins the entire show for you. What if, for example, Family Guy only exists in Stewie's head, and the entire show is just him making sense of the world in his own twisted way. And what if Stewie isn't even a baby during all of this, but a man in a coma? Fan theory possibilities are endless, which is what makes them so dangerous!

There are outrageous Family Guy fan theories all over the Internet, from the idea of Brian being a human in a dog's body to the show being some kind of Family Guy inception, where it's a show within a show that Brian is writing. Each theory is wilder than the next, with some of them coinciding in the same universe.
