I like American Dad for lots of reasons. Stan and his coworkers over-the-top attitude towards the US and the stereotypes associated with government agencies is hilarious. (Like the telethon to continue torture of terrorists or the lab where they make the age changing serum.) The dynamic between Stan and his hippie daughter is pretty funny. Roger is great. Steve's episodes with his friends are hilarious - who the hell doesn't love Toshi? "Did you undress me?!"

But like any show there are people who don't like it. Like those people who don't like chocolate, or don't like happiness. It's okay. There are lots of you out there.

The scenarios sound funny.

Heres what i think of the characters: steve is strange looking and his personality is irritating. He looks like a jerd but doesnt do anything smart, and afaik the show has never alluded to him being smart. And i feel like his friends arent really doing anything. Theyll have lines but theyre not funny :-/.

the hippie girl is an embarrassment to stans work. It seems like shes only even acting like that to pusposely offend/disrespect stan, and the damage is done so even if she stopped doing it she is still a disgrace. And frankly, she doesnt do anything funny.

The alien seemed like it was supposed to be a version of brian from family guy. the rogers voice is annoyig. I dont think the scenarios he finds himself are funny. Theyre just random, and that alone isnt funny, it has to make some sense. He seems far too aloof from the family as well

The mom of course isnt funny

The fishs german accent doesnt make sense and doesnt add to anything

Steve is a great singer. I loved his cover of Boyz II Men when those bees died.

Haley the 'hippie girl' reminds me of the white people in BLM. Also, I hear she's got the herps. ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euT-ynlHrDI))

Of course it is. He's an annoying character. Like that drunk gay cousin that keeps visiting and swearing in front of your kids. It's his charm.

Gasp! Untrue! Kalus has a rich history.

Nothing, your answer is nothing.

*cue "ironic" laugh track— in an attempt to trick you in to thinking that it was somehow humour*

I don't interpret the laugh tracks as something cuing me to laugh as much as it is a signal that the audience they expect to watch would laugh there, and for those who don't always laugh it creates a light hearted mood. It's similar to the "bum dum pish" sound with drums and symbols, but with voices; at least that's the best way I can view it without thinking of it as a "cue to laugh".

But then you see clips like this that are so painful it hurts.

Humor is subjective, it's just not your thing. Comedy is the hardest to find, such a fine line between hilarious and just terrible.

Much like the shut ins at reddit despise Big Bang for popularizing sterotypes that hit so close to home as to hurt their precious fee-fee's, I have a feeling OP feels similar about American Dad for similar reasons...

Couldn't watch the Clevland show either, glad it was canceled.

The gay alien, if he is actually gay (I don't watch enough to know), doesn't strike me as stewie's character. Stewie can do funny stuff. That fish just sits there talking with an accent and I think that's what's supposed to be funny. That and the idea that he'll make funny (and by funny I don't literally mean funny) faces when he says things that are probably supposed to imply that the viewer insert their own funny thought there. Idk the shows is so not funny I don't get the humor.

It's really just not your brand of humor. Personally, I like McFarlane's brand of humor, but I don't like the way it's expressed in Family Guy (also, fuck Brian.) It has Family Guy's brand of humor, but instead of expressing it through cutaway gags, it's expressed through actual decent characters and cohesive plots.
