What also helps to make this show hilarious, like Family Guy, is the secondary characters, most of which live in the Smith's Neighborhood or work with Stan. What has to be my favorite set of secondary characters has to be Greg and Terry. They are the local news anchors and also a gay couple. What makes them funny is that they are not just a gay stereotype but like to make fun them. In one episode the two are walking down the street holding hands, they make a comment about what just happened with the Smith's and then Greg goes "Wait, why are we always holding hands?" Terry says "Because how else would people know that we are gay?" "Oh right" and then they walk off.
This show is the best of the three McFarland shows on Fox right now.
