The Cleveland Show

'Simpsons' on the Jury for Peter and the Boys on 'Family Guy' (VIDEO)

'Family Guy' - 'Cool Hand Peter'After a fun cameo by 'King of the Hill' on 'The Simpsons' earlier in the night, 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX) went for a triple crossover. This time, though, it wasn't exclusively with Seth MacFarlane's other shows. Well, not entirely.

In a rather blatant attempt to remind viewers about 'The Cleveland Show,' Cleveland and Donna both crossed over to Quahog, with Cleveland reuniting with the boys for a road trip adventure. The adventure itself saw them arrested under false charges and tried before a jury of their peers.

"I don't think they see it that way," Joe said after the camera panned across a jury made up entirely of characters from 'The Simpsons.' It's a pretty accurate assessment of the two shows which may share a night and a network, but little else as the people behind making both shows don't seem to get along very well.

Roberta Can't Make Her 'Twilight' Fantasy Come True on 'Cleveland Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 31st 2011 5:30AM
'The Cleveland Show' - 'A Nightmare on Grace Street'While Cleveland and Rallo were learning to face their fears, and Cleveland Jr. and Donna were facing many people's worst nightmare, Roberta had to face simple reality on 'The Cleveland Show' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX). People who look and talk like Edward Cullen and Jacob Black aren't just mysterious and brooding. They're also not vampires or werewolves. In fact, they're probably just gay.

At least, that's the reality according to this show. Also, girls all across the world got a good tip on how not to find the right man. Throwing yourself off a cliff may attract the handsome man with a supernatural secret in the movies, but in real life you'll probably just find yourself flattened on a rock.

Seth MacFarlane's Leading Men All Meet in Conclusion of Hurricane Crossover (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 3rd 2011 2:45AM
'American Dad' - 'Hurricane!'Originally planned to the be the season finales for Seth MacFarlane's shows this past May, the hurricane crossover for 'The Cleveland Show,' 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on FOX) was shelved in response to a swath of tornadoes devastating the country at that time.

While there was a lot of fanfare for their impending premiere back then, FOX very quietly dropped them in as the second episodes of their respective series this season. Disappointingly, it wasn't until 'American Dad,' though, that the hurricane really became the focal point of the story.

As such, it was a bit of an overall disappointment as a crossover event, though we absolutely loved Cleveland Brown and Peter Griffin making a cameo at the end of 'American Dad.'

Peter Griffin Tells Cleveland They're Not Friends Anymore on 'Cleveland Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 26th 2011 2:45AM
'The Cleveland Show' - 'BFFs'Seth MacFarlane kicked off his portion of 'Animation Domination' with a crossover on 'The Cleveland Show' (Sun., 8:30PM ET on FOX). After finding out Peter Griffin had been in Stoolbend and not contacted him, Cleveland headed to 'Family Guy's Quahog to find out why.

There was a lot of fourth wall-breaking, like the Griffins assuming Cleveland's show had been cancelled. Finally, Peter bluntly told Cleveland that he no longer thinks of them as friends.

The episode then followed Cleveland trying to forge a tighter bond with his Stoolbend drinking buddies, only to have Peter arrive at the last moment -- with Chris' evil monkey -- to save them all. It was a fun nod to Cleveland's past, and another reminder of how fun these shows can mesh together.

Could Seth MacFarlane Be TV's Next Late-Night Talk Show Host?

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 17th 2011 1:45PM
Seth MacFarlane, one of the busiest guys in Hollywood, has built his constantly-expanding TV empire working mostly behind-the-scenes. MacFarlane got his start as a writer and animator on 'Family Guy,' spun-off with 'The Cleveland Show,' and in recent weeks, has branched out into producing a varied slate of projects: a 'Flintstones' reboot and an updated version of Carl Sagan's 'Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey.'

But despite this bevvy of projects he currently has on the air and in development, we can't shake the feeling that the final frontier of MacFarlane's quest to take over your TV could put him in front of the cameras, not behind them. Is it possible he might be TV's next late-night talk show host? He's got the good looks of on-camera talent, his Twitter feed is filled with jokes about politics and current events, and pretty much everything he's touched has turned successful.

Read on for our theory about why MacFarlane would make a great late-night host, and why we think it could actually become a reality.

'Family Guy' Closes Out Its Take on the 'Star Wars' Trilogy With 'It's a Trap!' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 23rd 2011 7:31AM
'Family Guy' - 'It's a Trap!'Hardcore fans of 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX) have already seen the concluding chapter of Seth MacFarlane's take on the original 'Star Wars' trilogy. (It was released on Blu-Ray and DVD way back on December 21, 2010.) Now, however, everyone got a chance to experience the fun.

While these take place in the 'Family Guy' series, MacFarlane reaches through all of his shows to bring in characters to fill out the vast 'Star Wars' cast. Rallo from 'The Cleveland Show' appears as Nien Nunb while Tim the Bear is the obvious choice for Wicket, the Eewok. From 'American Dad' we get Roger as Moff Jerjerrod and, the obvious choice for Admiral Ackbar, Klaus.

Fans of the first two installments will find more to enjoy here, as MacFarlane continues to show his love for the source material, while still finding plenty to mock. But that's what true fans of 'Star Wars' do.

The X FactorIn advance of this afternoons Upfront presentation in New York, Fox announced its fall 2011 TV schedule this morning. There aren't any big surprises, aside from the 'Bones' spinoff 'Finder' getting its debut at midseason instead of this fall as a contingency plan for Emily Deschanel's pregnancy like many predicted.

The long-delayed 'Terra Nova' finally gets its official debut this fall, with the Steven Spielberg-produced dinosaur show airing Monday nights at 8PM before 'House.' 'The X Factor' takes over 'American Idol''s time slot, and will help launch a new comedy on Wednesday nights.

Another interesting tidbit to note: 'America's Most Wanted' has been discontinued as a regular TV series; after 23 years Fox has decided to bring back the show in the form of occasional specials.

Check out the full lineup after the jump.

Hoda Kotb Is Proud to Be a Stalker on 'The Cleveland Show' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 4th 2011 2:00PM
Hoda Kotb on 'Today'Last night, Cleveland Brown called out Hoda Kotb as a former stalker of his on 'The Cleveland Show.' This morning on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Kathie Lee Gifford said the reference meant Kotb had finally "made it."

"This is when you know you're getting big, Hoda woman," said Gifford, "when you're referenced during some sort of commentary of contemporary life."

That might be overstating things a bit. The clip from 'The Cleveland Show' shows Brown talking to a woman who is worried she looks like a stalker. Brown jokes that his last stalker killed herself on his doorstep before saying he was kidding, that she was on the 'Today' show now. He then looks into the camera and says, "Stay away from me, Hoda."

That's not exactly zeitgeist, but it was enough of an excuse for Gifford to bring up the fact the Kotb has enjoyed dating fat guys. Kotb said it was just because it makes her look thin.

Sundays With Seth: 'American Dad' and 'Cleveland Show' Recaps

You have to give Seth MacFarlane credit for one thing: At least he's aware of how many times he's taken the easy way out on 'The Cleveland Show' by just having Kendra show up and throwing out a fat joke.

As she wasn't the butt of any of them this week, she scooted by like a crawler on the bottom of the screen to announce the 100th fat joke of the season. I haven't been keeping track, but as Kendra has been featured more this year, I wouldn't be surprised if it was at least that.

The rest of the episode was actually pretty clever, with Cleveland reconnecting with a girl who had a crush on him in high school (voiced by Lizzy Caplan). There was no B-story to this episode, and yet the episode never seemed to meander too far from entertaining.

Sanaa Lathan Blames Animators for Donna's Growing Breasts on 'Cleveland Show' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 28th 2011 3:05PM
Sanaa Lathan on 'The Wendy Williams Show'Sanaa Lathan was on 'Wendy Williams' (weekdays, syndicated) Monday, and said that while she enjoys voicing Donna, Cleveland Brown's second wife, on 'The Cleveland Show,' she's noticed that the show's animators have been up to some shenanigans lately.

When Lathan began watching the show, she noticed something strange. "After the first season, I was watching the show and loving how cute Donna looks," said Lathan. "But then I noticed her boobs were actually getting bigger."

Lathan asked the producers if that was a conscious decision. "They said, 'No, it must be the animators.'" She said that must be the animators "getting their kicks." If they're still using the same production company, the next season should be interesting.
