You know, to be perfectly honest with you, I don’t know if the Family Guy spin-off, to just be called Cleveland, will even make it to the 13 episodes. Is there really such a big fanbase for a slow-talking black guy with a mustache who likes to take baths and talk about sexing it up with the old lady? I guess so, because FOX has officially given Seth MacFarlane’s Cleveland a 13-episode order for its first season.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“Cleveland,” a spinoff of “Family Guy,” is expected to get on the air with a 13-episode order. The show, from “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, Rich Appel and Mike Henry, is now staffing. The writers are slated to begin work May 19, and the series’ first table read is targeted for the first week of July.
Personally, I’d rather see a spin-off with Joe, the wheelchair-bound cop, or perverted next-door neighbor Quagmire. I’ll still give Cleveland a watch, though like the awful American Dad, I might end up hating Seth MacFarlane for it.
Seriously, just how crappy is American Dad? Good God.
