    haha, great, but I believe family guy is older than the office, so it should be `the office is actually family guy`, yes, I am an irritating know-it-all... big woop, wanna fight about it?

    Family Guy came out before The Office. So that would make The Office a total rip-off of Family Guy.

    I already picked up the Mayor West/Creed connection before even opening this, but I thought it would be because of the fact that they play caricatures of their real life selves and they both found their biggest success in the 60`s, (West was of course in the old batman show and Creed was the lead guitarist in the 60`s rock band The Grass Roots).

    The Office is totally the same thing. Right down to the way that they`ll often throw in a random pop culture reference, then cut to a quick gag based around that reference.

    The US version of The Office is more of a sitcom while the UK version was a bit darker and more tragic. But they are both excellent in my opinion.

    I liked the British version of the Office just fine... I just prefer the American one. The spin that Steve Carell takes on his character make it so much better. Plus the side characters are better, and the main characters are... well... overall just performed better than the original series.

    big news: every comedy series has some staple character roles.
    And it gets even easier with a relatively big cast like family guy. Though i wonder why they didnt take The Simpsons, that cast is so damn big you can compare them to everything. Probably even something like Dallas ^^

    King of the Hill, not really. That show is... well the things it talks about are much more realistic issues and it goes about it in a muchhh different and slightly less comedic way than the others.

    And in regards to the other three: Family Guy I`m pretty sure IS meant to be a modern remake of The Simpsons, and American Dad is made BY THE SAME person that made Family Guy, so no duh they`re the same.
