Well it depends. Simpsons have tried to keep relevant and their jokes are a bit more blatant and some can be long winded and eyrollingly, trying too hard to be self referential. But it's not bad it's just never going to be at it's peak again. To be honest Moive Bob can explain this way better than me. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-big-picture/5140-The-Simpsons-Is-Still-Funny-Pt-1
Just watch that.

However, the main problem I have with King of the Hill is the characters, mostly how they were made. None of them are interesting, or some of them just bug me (except for Boonhauer and Hank). The humor is dry and funny, but not all their episode topics are that great either.
I see King of the Hill as a huge contrast to a lot of those comedy shows out there that just shove humour in your face. I mean since when has a Sitcom really been subtle or since when have you watched something that doesn't try and shove humour in your face. Another reason I hate Family Guy is because it tries to shove the views of the writer(s) in my face in the most blatant way possible. It's the same with a lot of shows and I doubt King of the Hill is any different. But it feels less so.
King of the Hill is more of a change of pace, and it's sudden rise popularity (due in part because of the internet and meme hive mind thing going on right now) is probably the reason. It's different, but not in the wrong was or just for the sake of being different.
