Do you allow your young child to watch Family Guy?

Just curious. Not bashing others if they do, but my answer is no and here's why: I'm sure my kids will sneak it when they are bigger, but I still let them know it is a cartoon for big people. I like the show personally but I am not comfortable with my child seeing some of the situations like:
Incest, the whole family has sex with each other when they are making up a story
The dog has sex with women
Two of the characters are perverts, one a pedophile and the other a nimpho.
Also the very graphic sexual behaviors that are what makes family guy!

I think it's funny for adults, but I don't believe children process sexual situations like we do.

  • I love it to, and no! My son is not allowed to ever watch it. Kids repeat things, and are developing the social skills. I really don't want his social role model to be peter!

  • No way. My 9 year old asks too many questions as it is. I'll watch it with just hubby, but no kids.

  • No way! But then, we got rid of our TV completely this summer as we decided we just don't need it in our house, so there's a lot of shows my kids won't be watching! But even before when we had TV, my husband would watch it occasionally but never when our kids were around.
