Family Guy is a popular animated TV show that airs on FOX and has been entertaining audiences since 1999. The show follows the life of a dysfunctional family, the Griffins, living in the fictional town of Quahog, Rhode Island. Created by Seth MacFarlane, the show is known for its dark humor, witty jokes, and pop culture references, which have made it a name to reckon with in the world of animated sitcoms.

The Griffins are made up of the dad, Peter (voiced by Seth MacFarlane), who is an overweight, bumbling, and impulsive man; his wife Lois (voiced by Alex Borstein), who is a rational and calm individual; their kids, the socially awkward Chris (voiced by Seth Green), brainy Meg (voiced by Lacey Chabert in the early seasons and then by Mila Kunis), and the youngest member, Stewie (voiced by Seth MacFarlane). Stewie is a baby who is more intelligent than most adults and is fixated on world domination and killing his mother.

The show is known for its irreverent humor and often pushes boundaries with the content it presents. It takes on a range of topics and parodies everything from politics, religion, and celebrities to TV shows and movies. As a result, it has gained a loyal following over the years.

Family Guy has a recurring cast of characters in addition to the Griffins. There is their neighbor, Glenn Quagmire (voiced by MacFarlane), who is a pilot and obsessed with sex; Cleveland Brown (voiced by Mike Henry), who is Peter's childhood friend and has his own spin-off show; and Joe Swanson (voiced by Patrick Warburton), who is a cop and is confined to a wheelchair.

The show is also known for its cutaway gags where it cuts to a completely unrelated flashback or visual gag, which has no direct relation to the plot but adds to the show's humor.

In addition to its humorous content, Family Guy is known for addressing social issues in its storyline. The show has tackled serious topics such as addiction, alcoholism, and domestic violence in a sensitive yet humorous manner. It has also been known to criticize political figures and social issues of the day in an unfiltered way.

Family Guy has gone through its ups and downs over its long run. It was cancelled after the third season due to low ratings but was eventually brought back due to its popularity in syndication. Since then, the show has had its share of controversy. In 2010, it sparked outrage with an episode that made fun of Down Syndrome, prompting the National Down Syndrome Society to speak out against the show. However, despite its controversial moments, the show remains popular with audiences.

Overall, Family Guy is a satirical and entertaining show that has tackled a range of topics with its unique brand of humor. Its characters are well-developed and its plots are often hilarious, making it a must-watch for fans of animated sitcoms. Moreover, the show's ability to address serious topics in a humorous fashion has made it a cultural touchstone, and it remains one of the most loved and talked-about shows on television today.

Family Guy is a series that is currently running and has 22 seasons (430 episodes). The series first aired on January 31, 1999.
