    Has anyone been watching this on E4? Apparently it's had decent ratings in the US, by the makers of King of The Hill (admittedly a show I never really got into).. I think this is different enough from Family Guy to deserve some credit, the 2 episodes we've had broadcast here have been pretty good so far I reckon.

    I considered watching this, but it's just to weird to see that Bob guy with Archer's voice!

    I've only watched the pilot episode and I loved it!!

    It's fantastic dry humor with a lot of quirkiness mixed in. I can see why people hate this show.. dry humor can be quite draining.

    When I have time, I'll catch up on this show.
    You're like a bad penny =)

    so true!

    any rate, I've watched a few episodes so far and I've been pleasantly surprised by this! honestly, it's gotten more genuine laughs outta me than most of the recent Simpsons episodes.

    ^ Well to be fair, that's not very difficult

    (I gave up on The Simpsons about 4 years ago)

    I don't find it that funny to be honest. I'm glad others watch Archer too .. best animated show around!

    It does well in the US ratings because it's put alongside FOX's more established cartoons: Family Guy, American Dad, Cleveland Show and The Simpsons. None of which as funny as they used to be (I don't watch American Dad though, and TCS is pure crap).

    American Dad is still as funny as ever. Always lived in Family Guys shadow but its now the stronger.

    I think Linda is my favourite character, it's refreshing to see the woman being the dumb one in these family cartoon shows

    I've been watching this as they're reshowing it on Channel 4, it's pretty good! Louise is brilliant, the way she just says what she wants and always tries to stir up trouble. Linda is crazy, loved the B&B episode. Tina is funny too, sounds like a boy going through puberty.
