The whole lineup, including the Simpsons has been going downhill for a while.

Stewie travelled through time last year into the future and Cleveland had moved back.

Also the animation was then 3D.

Can't say I am sorry to see it go. I watched the first few episodes and it was pretty awful.

I hope they bring Cleveland back to Family Guy now. You can never have enough of Peter destroying Cleveland's home while he's taking a bath.

The few episodes I've seen were painfully unfunny.

The odd thing, however, is that the character is very different on FG then on his own show. On FG he was something of a level headed milquetoast. On "the Cleveland Show," he's basically black Peter Griffin: stupid and insensitive. So which version would return to Quahog?

Actually, I thought the first few episodes were alright, but it quickly went downhill.

As it stands, Peter, Cleveland and Stan are all basically the same character now anyway. No problems losing one. Or even two.

Re: The Cleveland show is cancelled

For FAMILY GUY fans or haters, how many here absolutely cannot stand Chris? All the abuse directed at Meg (about 40 percent which is actually funny) could be justifiably directed back at him. When is Chris ever funny? When will Peter ever drop his tedious ''Look at me, I'm {whatever}'' shtick? Or drop his 40-second laugh instead of expanding it further and further? Needless to say, whatever smart humor exists lies securely with Brian and Stewie. Pardon the digression.....

There's a chart on this page showing the similarity of all three of Seth McFarlane's shows.

The Stewie/Brian episodes are definitely their strongest episodes. I always look forward to them.

Re: The Cleveland show is cancelled

This show's always been mediocre to bad. I get the impression Seth MacFarlane doesn't even like doing these shows anymore, but Fox demands them and it's nice to have income. Can't really blame him for not saying "no."

I would agree that the only FG episodes worth watching are the Brian/Stewie ones. The rest tend to be out-and-out trash.

Re: The Cleveland show is cancelled

I wonder how well it would do ratings wise if Chris and Peter were never seen again. Seth Green is has been reduced to permanent nails-on-a-chalkboard status. We get that Peter is almost as stupid, but it's always prolonged to unbearable length. The point has been made. It's still a very smart show, but those two could get insulted a hell of a lot more even if it means losing their key demographic. How many more bloody fights with Lois or cheap shots at Meg does the non-core audience have to endure? Giggety.
