This show is trrrrrrrrrrrible!!!!
8 October 2009 | by jamesoshea91See all my reviews

This show suuuuuucks,i was never really excited about it in the first place and when I watched it my brain almost melted with boredom,its pretty obvious that all Seth cared about was money when thinking up this show so he decided to take the lamest character in family guy and give him a spin off,and the reason for this was because family guy fans would automatically watch this lame show. It is a non funny black version of family guy and that is it.the funniest thing about the pilot was when the family guy characters where in it, Cleveland can not carry a show.

The thing that annoyed me most was the fact that the just took the family guy formula and applied it to Cleveland,the even use the stupid cut aways which I hate more than anything,its destroys the story and is a sign of shoddy writing, cant think of anything to say...put in a crappy cut away or a gag joke,but apart from that the jokes are lame as hell.the only funny thing is the little afro kid. This show completely falls apart after the first 5 minutes of an episode,out of the two I've seen.

Watch American dad instead because that is funny
