** Season 13 continues the rot according to some. Despite including the much-anticipated crossover with ''The Simpsons'', it features episodes like "Brian the Closer", "The 2,000 Year Old Virgin", "Our Idiot, Brian", "Quagmire's Mom", and "Stewie is Enceinte", which are considered to be the worst in the series. What doesn't help is that there was an increase in Peter-focused episodes that season, which had some of the other Griffins (notably Meg & Chris) often going several episodes without speaking or even appearing, resulting with the FanNickname ''The Peter Griffin Show'' even though the fucking name of the show is Family Guy refers in fact to Peter Griffin so this is both retarded and redundant.

* FansPreferTheNewHer: In "Sibling Rivalry", Lois became quite obese when Peter stopped having sex with her. The show treated this change as the worst thing that happened to her. The viewers, on the other hand, [[BigBeautifulWoman thought she became quite sexy]].

** Season 13 continues the rot according to some people. Despite having the crossover episode with The Simpsons which was very anticipated to most fans, it features episodes like "Brian the Closer", "The 2,000 Year Old Virgin", "Our Idiot Brian", "Quagmire's Mom", and "Stewie is Enceinte", which fans might consider it to be some of the worst episodes in the whole show.

Added DiffLines:

** The plot of "House Full of Peters" makes Peter's SuspiciouslySpecificDenial [[spoiler:about his having unwittingly fathered another child]] in "Don't Make Me Over" much, much, funnier. [[spoiler: For bonus points, The former episode took place after Peter's vasectomy, and the latter took place before.]]

* HypeBacklash: The show's final {{un|Canceled}}cancelation alienated a lot of long-term fans who didn't like that this quirky cult series which occasionally aired on late-night TV had now become a pop-culture behemoth which, for a time, blew their [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons long-time]] [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark competition]], and almost all other animated shows for that matter, out of the water in terms of popularity. There exists a theory that the only reason ''Family Guy'' got as popular as it did was that it was revived just as those shows were [[SeasonalRot beginning to run out of steam]], but this hasn't stopped ''Family Guy'' from continuing to go through this trope despite its own alleged SeasonalRot, leading to ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' comparisons and similar accusations of appealing to the "dudebro" masses. What was once being called a daring groundbreaker is now being called the worst thing to happen to adult animation, if not THE worst thing to happen to WesternAnimation.

* MoneyDearBoy: Arguably THE reason why FOX has refused to end production on the show, despite many fans and even creator Seth [=MacFarlane=] wanting them to do so due to the SeasonalRot, is due to late-night reruns and DVD sales having the potential for the show to be FOX's most valuable animated franchise since ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
