American Dad has been compared with both Family Guy and The Simpsons many times throughout its run. The show has set itself apart by its unique story structures and techniques. The show focuses on the Smith family in the fictional community of Langley Falls. Stan Smith is a father, husband, and also CIA agent. This creates a lot of situations where he has to lie and present us with comedy gold.

The Simpsons has been on the air even before many of us were born. It is one of the longest-running shows on television. The Simpsons has Homer Simpson who works in a factory. The show doesn’t show its characters as normal humans but instead showcase them as people with yellow bodies. It is a beloved show for many of the adults who have been watching it since their childhood. Homer Simpson has been a household name for a long time with its run-on television. The show led to the creation of shows like Family Guy, American Dad, and Futurama.
6. Bob’s Burgers
Bob’s Burgers is centered around the Belcher family with bob, his wife, and their children. As the name suggests the family runs a burger restaurant with all of its family members. There has also been a crossover with the show Archer where Archer has amnesia and thinks he is bob, he flips burgers and continues his life there for some time (This is because both bob and archer are voiced by the same voice actor- H. Jon Benjamin). There is also a running gag where the business in opening scenes is changed every week and many times with a pun in them.
