    Who do you think is a better character Marge Simpson or Lois Griffin? I don't know about Marge Simpson but I think her character has declined in recent years except for a couple of episode that recapture her old character. Lois, I don't know much about her, but she seems like a little bit like Marge especially the Scully-era Marge.

    A crappy b****y house wife vs a character that has a decent desighn and actually does things to contribute to the story. Lois hands down.

    Oh God, Marge. Lois is one of those annoying crazy woman characters. Marge actully has a personality. Not to mention that Marge is featured in a good show, but that's besides the point.

    Marge. She seems more like the glue that holds the family together while Lois seems more like a doormat. Homer actually listens to Marge while Peter treats Lois like crap. I prefer stronger women. Not to mention Marge is actually a great person while Lois has "done" Kiss.

    Marge is the vehicle for sanity, Lois is the vehicle for comedy. They're two completely different types of characters.

    Lois is funnier than Marge.

    Marge is more dimensional than Lois.

    Of course if you were to compare FG to Simpsons 2's latest seasons, Lois would win both former and latter comparison.

    Meh, they're two different women on two different comedy shows. They each have their strong points and their weak points and neither show would be the same without them. I cannot choose between the two.

    Like all the Family Guy characters, Lois is a fairly bland, dull caricature, whose sole purpose is a vehicle for gags and to react to Peter's crazy antics. Marge has far more depth and humanity as a character; see A Streetcar Named Marge (Marge joins a musical), Scenes From the Class Struggle in Springfield (Marge's striving for acceptance in the country club), Brush With Greatness (the episode where she paints Bruns in the nude), and so many others. And even in the later seasons, despite that Marge is often too ditzy and used to deliver bad pop culture jokes, she certainly has her moments as the sane, uberprincipled housewife, far more interesting than Lois: watch The Way We Weren't, Diatribe of a Mad Housewife, or even Three Gays of the Condo.

    I guess Peggy Hill has no say in this battle with everything she has acomplished for her family and herself.

    They seem the same to me. Peggy is a little different(a little more annoying), but there's a tendency for all TV moms to act almost exactly the same and contribute little to the shows they're written for.

    EXCEPT, of course, for LORELAI GILMORE!
    I wish there were more Lorelais and less Lois/Marges...

    Lois disgusts me. She's a really perverted character.

    Marge used to be okay, but lately i've grown to dislike her.

    I'm at a draw here.

    If there was a competition for the most self-absorbed, annoying, egomaniacal, vain, clueless, horrible housewife Peggy would win hands down. She makes Lois look like June Cleaver.

    Peggy Hill annoys me sometimes... she's so into herself, you know? :p


    Back to the original mothers, I like Marge more, she just seems stronger to me.

    Well, Lois and Marge is part of the classic Simpsons vs Family Guy Thing, only branched out to the wives. So, Peggy Hill, would be slightly out of place.

    For some reason I was really annoyed when Peggy Hill was denying that her Spanish is awful.

    How did she get into teaching Spanish in the first place?

    You gotta love her testimony in the Mexican court, though.

    "I am very pregnant because of what happened with Lupe. She ate my bus accident and all I wanted was to make Lupe into a book. I have too many anuses ahead of me to spend my life in a cigar factory!!"

    Lois would win easily, she's like what a 10th degree blackbelt? but then Marge has had police training (and if it's the "'roid freak" version we could be looking at a bizarro version of Yusuke vs. younger Toguro) so really it's anybody's guess oh wait this is a character poll, in which case this would be like comparing All in the Family to Police Squad
