Is Family Guy the Best Animated Primetime Comedy on TV?

There was a bit of a gasp heard yesterday when the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were announced and Family Guy was listed, right alongside shows like 30 Rock and Entourage, in the Outstanding Comedy Series category. It's a triumphant moment for all animated comedies everywhere to be recognized even this much by the Emmys. But as cool as this is (and it really is cool), I have to wonder: is Family Guy the animated show most worthy of an Emmy nomination?

What do you think? Does it make sense that Family Guy is up there with other big-shot comedy series? Or do you wish a different animated series were nominated?
