Check this out; Seth McFarlane, the creator of family guy is creating a new show. I honestly think it will suck more then American Dad. It is a direct spin-off of family called 'The Cleveland show'. These characters look inspired!

I never really liked Family Guy, but i tolerated it. This though, is gonna suck dick. Discuss.

EDIT:Whoops, spelled his name wrong in the title.

I don't like the idea frankly. Cleveland was the most boring character.

He was also the only one who got character development. His relationship with his wife was the only realistic one, but he was just on the show to be black. This reminds of Chocolate News and the awfulness from that.

The guy's name is Seth MacFarlane, not "Mcfarline".

Old news is almost as bad as this meme.
They really don't have much to go with here. His basic character description is "dull," which is only really amusing when placed in an absurd situation, I.E. Arthur Dent in the Hitchhiker's books.

you guys didn't hear about this?
it's old news.
It was actually "announced" about a month ago.
remember at the end of that episode where stewie traps quagmire and cleveland in the basement after being left home alone?
at the end, after reciting the last few lines of the "DirecTV Help Channel's" pre-recorded message cleveland asks quagmire "you hear i'm gettin a spin-off?"
but it replaces King of the Hill in the sunday "Animation Domination" lineup.
It leaves The Simpsons as the only Non-McFarlane produced show on the sunday night lineup.
KOTH remains syndicated on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming lineup starting January, according to various advertising "bumps" on Adult Swim.

But it is very generic. The characters are almost identical to Family Guy's and Family Guy was more of an edgier Simpsons. The fact that Seth made the show just like Family Guy made it seem like a rushed project for a quick buck. Sorry to make fun of what you like, but it is really an uninteresting show to me.
#26
if he did anything he should have made it about Quagmire...at least Quagmire gives a laugh or two.

I actually liked Family Guy.

American Dad was pretty lame.

This is just utter sh*t.

Whats sad is american dad has actually had better storylines lately than family guy.

Seth just got signed by fox for some crazy amount of cash to stay on for at least 5 years. Im pretty sure it was $100+ million. Of course fox is the only network that CONSISTANTLY runs a great show and milks it for all its worth until it crashes and burns horribly. The GM of TV you could say.

Seth does 3 shows now, with most of the characters voices belonging to him, so hes got job security, but him being so busy deffinatly shows in the quality lately. Family Guy has started to suck, american dad, which i used to hate, is somehow funnier every couple of episodes, and this new ones just going to suck period.

The writers would quit if they needed to write 11 "Giggity Giggiety"s each week. Quagmire is good for a quick gag or sub-plot, not a feature length show.

Well for sake of example, look at the Simpsons. At its prime, it was unarguably fantastic. Now it sucks due to Fox milking (the movie).

lol, what happened to his old family?

The wife doesn't look like Loretta and the son wasn't enormous. And where did the other two come from? I bet this doesn't last more than 1 month.

Exactly my point. Im a devoted fan and watch every week, but i miss the days with the truly witty comedy that came from the simpsons. Its still funny, but its just....not the same. You can tell its the show that they keep because the brand is so strong.

everything seth has done outside of family guy has sucked really hard, and even family guy is sucking latley
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

This is terrible. They are canceling King of the Hill (One of my favourite shows). Just for a stupid spin-off which will take Cleveland out of Family Guy.

Seth MacFarlane has really fucked up this time.

In my opinion, Family Guy has been going downhill while American Dad is going up.

Cleveland is my favorite Family Guy character, so that makes this seem like it would be better.
