Now you're all probably wondering why I'm asking this of you. Well, Recently I finished up a visual novel by the name of Kira Kira. It's a REALLY good Visual Novel which is similar to K-ON in some ways, but it takes itself more seriously with being in a band and the characters are expanded upon quite a bit. I suppose I'm being a bit biased in that way I suppose since anime can only have so many episodes. Well, if anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.

About 90% of it his silly jokes, running gags, and quirky character traits.
The other 10% is music.
The characters really come down to generic archetypes that most anime-fans are familiar with and almost nothing comes as a gigantic surprise.
There is no real climax, important plot points, and for the most part every episode was self-contained except for some over-arching goal. For the most part, it's on the same intellectual caliber of a children's cartoon in America. Which isn't bad, but provides a very casual viewing experience that really shouldn't be compared to something that really focuses on character development and plot.
K-On is silly and meant to be enjoyed. There's not really much else to say about it. With the description that you're giving of your visual novel, I feel like comparing the two would be an apples and oranges type of argument. If you want to compare K-On in terms of quality of the genre, I really prefer something like Nichijou or Azumanga Daioh. The writing in those shows is usually much better, and both try to be adventurous with their efforts.
tl;dr K-On isn't about the story, it's widely regarded as comedic, and even then I don't particularly consider it the best out there

The characters are just shallow stereotypes. And the jokes aren't even funny, they're very predictable. If there's a chance for Yui to fall, she'll fall right on her ass in the most moeblob way possible.
It just feels like moe fap fodder.

It's like one of those Barbie movies they keep making, I guess. A lot of the show is driven by the market.
And I must salute them for producing something that scored higher than Lucky Star when it comes to marketability.
I mean, "What if we had a bunch of pudgy high school girls who play guitar and fall on their ass," is a pretty good pitch!
If you do want a good show in the same vein, go watch Nichijou.
