I do already have a Family Guy thread, but that is Family Guy, and I wanted to see how a The Cleveland Show one works out, as I would like to discuss both in different threads.

While I agree that The Cleveland Show isn't the best show in the world, it is still pretty good. I didn't really like the first episode of season 2 though (the newest one from this week).

That being said, here are my favourite Cleveland Show episodes overall:

Season 1 pilot (this is still my favourite)
A Brown Thanksgiving
A Cleveland Brown Christmas
Cleveland's Angels
You're The Best Man, Cleveland Brown

Here is the preview for this Sunday's episode:

Cleveland Live! is the second episode of the second season of the animated television series The Cleveland Show. It is due to air October 3, 2010 on Fox. It will be a "live" episode, parodying the gimmicks of filmed TV series shooting a live episode.

Plot
When Cleveland and Donna attempt to celebrate their anniversary, their unruly kids and disruptive friends, including Donna’s ex-husband, Robert, get in their way.

I don't exactly understand how a "live" cartoon works, if it means that, but yeah...

Do any of you guys like TCS? if so, what are you favourite episodes?
This will start a RIOT! in me

Cleaveland himself isnt that funny without the guys from Family guy.

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

The Cleveland Show is really pointless, the main character doesn't have a personality that translates well from being a great recurring cast member to the lead role. Cleveland is a great character, don't get me wrong, but he doesn't have that weirdly exciting edge that makes a spin-off really worth it.
#7
Excellent, a thread about how awful the Cleveland Show is and why it needs to go away.

I'll keep my eye on this, just as soon as I'm done flossing my cat.

Is somehow worse than Family Guy.

Oh come on... if you at least like/used to like Family Guy you must at least think that it's okay? that's just my opinion anyway... not trying to start World War 5 here, but The Simpsons never was funny, and nor was Futurama.

But Futurama really isn't that great, I tried watching a few episodes and I never found it funny . It's just like a kids drama, or... something.

Series 1 did seem consistantly a bit better at the beginning. The one where his ex wife, Loretta, dies (back in Quahog) is a funny one though. I believe that is the very last episode of series 1.

Yet you find Family Guy and The Cleveland Show to be funny?





Maybe intelligent humor just isn't your thing.


I can deal with Family Guy. It's not the best, but I can watch it from time to time. I can't stand The Cleveland Show though. I watched two episodes just to give it a chance, and it was terrible.

This has voided any positive outcomes/effects this thread may have had on the internet and humanity.


Futurama is one of the more intelligent comedies out there, and is nothing at all like a kid's drama. Then again, you do find Family Guy funny.

+1 to everything in this post. The first couple seasons of Family Guy were pretty good, but after season 3 or so it started going downhill. Even at its worst, though, I still laughed a few times per episode when I watched once every few weeks. I think, out of the three episodes of The Cleveland Show i watched, I can't remember laughing once.

YOU SHUT YOUR ***** MOUTH. YOU SHUT IT RIGHT NOW.

Seriously though? Futurama is most definitely not a kids drama. And it's way funnier than all of Seth McFarlane's shows combined.

I won't do what you tell me.

And if you can state facts, so can I. Futurama is a poor show that is not funny in any way what so ever. Seth McFarlane's shows are a million times better. Futurama is just as bad as The Simpsons. D'oh...

There is some master trolling going on in this thread.

I always found American Dad to be better than Family Guy. FG was awful and jumped up to mediocrity sometimes, whereas American Dad stayed at a consistent level of mediocrity.

Don't you think that Cleveland is the least logical character for a spinoff? Quagmire has more personality than he does. It's an excuse for a bunch of white people to write black people jokes, which are, in reality, even whiter than the white jokes they write, and they already did it in Family Guy anyway. The very idea that someone could have that idea fills my head with lots of ****s. I'd like to say something positive to make this more of a discussion and less of a Cleveland bashing thread, but the truth is Cleveland's worst jokes in FG were funnier than the best ones in his own show. Also, any semblance of a civil discussion were tossed out the window when Futurama was declared worse than Family Guy.
...In my opinion.
#31
The Simpsons up to about season 12 is the funniest show ever. Because the last couple of seasons weren't great people seem to forget that. But still, new Simpsons is better than even old Family Guy.

Oh. The Cleveland Show is the worst thing ever.

Personally, The Simpsons isn't even funny... I have yet to laugh at just ONE joke from them. I just think of The Simpsons as one of those lame kids cartoons, such as Ed, Edd & Eddy.

The Cleveland Show is decent... nowhere near as good as Family Guy, but it's still decent. Some episodes aren't as good as others with this though.

I stopped watching The Cleveland Show after the first episode.

Then you clearly know nothing about comedy at all.

I've seen every episode of Futurama at least 10 times. What are you trying to say about me?

And I really think Seth MacFarlane has too many shows. Family Guy is great, American Dad is all right, but I don't like the Cleveland Show for some reason. I liked it when Cleveland was that overly-passive, slow-talking black dude. Now it's like they're trying to turn him into George Jefferson or something.
