Not even half as bad as the critics make it out to be; because it's actually a funny, heart-warming and wonderfully-done show.
29 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Love it! Positive thoughts on this to the absolute maximum; because "The Cleveland Show", although not as crude and not as funny as Family Guy, is a genuinely good, heart-warming TV show with great characters, including the wonderful star, Cleveland Brown of Family Guy himself. Remember, it doesn't necessarily need to be funny to be good. It can just be plain good to watch. But yeah, a lot of it, and I mean a helluva lot of it actually is funny. Season one started off pretty risky, but then came Season two and completely turned the tables around.

Season two seen better, and more funnier things happen in the show, including their hilarious trip to Hawaii episode, which was a great episode in particular. Seriously guys, if you're looking for something fresh, check out the Cleveland Show, because it's not even as bad as the critics make it to be. Same with on here, the rating it has is under 6.0, when in all honesty, it's worthy of an 8.0 or more. I, personally, would rate the show a genuine, strong and solid 9.0 out of 10. Gives me good memories, it's funny, it's fresh, it has excellent characters, and yes, they're not that bad, give them a chance and you'll see they're actually decent.

I just think it's a very good show with exciting episodes and different, funny happenings. Not as funny as Family Guy, but nearly as good. Thanks a lot for reading my strongly-positive review on one of my top 10 favourite shows ever made, "The Cleveland Show". And hey, even if it did get cancelled, so what? it has been watched by millions of people and has nearly 4 million fans on Facebook....it must be loved and praised by some people, at least.

9.0 out of 10.
