The Cleveland Show'Family Guy' fans have suffered a huge loss -- and an even bigger gain. Giggly neighbor Cleveland Brown has left Quahog for his old hometown in Stoolbend, Indiana, adding a new show of his own to Fox's Sunday night animation lineup.

With Cleveland Jr. in tow, Cleveland's got a new wife, a couple of rowdy stepkids and, of course, some very interesting (and very diverse) new neighbors, which all comes together to make 'The Cleveland Show' (premieres Sun., Sept. 27, 8:30PM ET on Fox).

We got creators Rich Appel and Mike Henry -- who is also the voice of Cleveland, among other characters -- to tell us how 'Cleveland' is different from 'Family Guy,' which episodes are their favorites and what it was like working with Kanye West. (Shocker: He arrived early!)

If history repeats itself, he could be the George Jefferson to Peter Griffin's Archie Bunker, i.e., The Jeffersons spinning off from All in the Family.
