I think that’s a pretty good point, EJ.  Family Guy does sort of take on the role of bully.  But in it’s defense, so many different people get skewered, I believe the core audience gets it’s share.  And really, the Griffins and friends are examples of what a great family IS NOT.  And (and maybe I’m giving Seth MacFarlane too much credit here) isn’t that supposed to be the ironic thing about calling it Family Guy?
