The Cleveland Show?!... What were they thinking?

Is it just me, or does 'The Cleveland Show' seem like the worst possible idea for a Family Guy spin-off? The character is just so dull and dreery, and takes, like, 15 minutes to get out a sentance, not that i'd be listening to the sentance because of the pain-stakingly dull tone of his voice. It just seems like they could've made a much better spin off idea other than 'The Life and Times of Boring Ol' Cleveland'. I'd rather watch a show about the life of Quagmire, for sure, who I've always found to be such a weird and interesting character, not to mention a hilarious one. I'd even rather watch a spin-off about the life of Stewie or Meg or Chris and what they get up to at school. In fact, just about anyone in the Family Guy universe: Tom Tucker, Opie, Brian's Gay Cousin Jasper, Greased-Up Deaf Guy, Joe, Ollie the Blackie Weather Reporter, Death, etc, would make immensely better main characters for a spin off. Just not Cleveland! [EDIT] So, I just found this promo picture of The Cleveland Show: Do you notice the same thing I do? He has a daughter who's the eldest, a fat nerdy son who is the middle child, and a baby with a mishapen head... Does it remind you of anyone?: I'm a big fan of Seth McFarlane, but he basically made the same show twice. It's the exact same show, only now the characters are black (no offense intended). What's the point in making a new show, even a spin-off, if you aren't going to mix it up a little bit? I also noticed something in The Cleveland Show poster. They have bears for neighbours. Bears... for neighbours? Are you kidding me? That's just desperate! ... your thoughts?

The Simpsons or Family Guy?!

What do you like better?! The Simpsons or Family Guy. For me it's the simpsons as the Simpsons is the original animated adult comedy series and family guy is just a knock off. Family guy ripped like a thousand jokes off of the simpsons. Besides that the Simpsons have been around and have been successful for like 18 years continuously while family guy was here for two years -was cancelled- and then came back again. The Simpsons rule! I just find the simpsons to be more contstantly funny, although I watch the family guy sometimes. What do you think?

Comedy of the Week: What's your favorite Family Guy moment?

In light of our Comedy of the Week feature today highlighting some hilarious Stewie and Brian moments , what's your favorite Family Guy moment or episode over the past 6 seasons? It's tough to choose, but my favorite is going to Stewie asking Brian about that novel he's writing - just can't get enough of it! Photo courtesy of

The Rise and fall of Spinoffs

When Joanie loved Chachi it lasted exactly 17 episodes. When Frasier loved Niles it lasted even longer-ish. When Skeletor remembered he had a mentor that had long ago been locked on another planet with He-Man's sister, it was like a steel-toed boot to the nethers. But that's just the risk of a spin off, now isn't it? You think you've got a great product, but then Hordak shows up and kicks you in the jellies. Unless the spin-off of which you speak belongs to Cleveland Brown of Family Guy fame. He, apparently, is on the threshold of carrying his own show. where it this going to end?

On family guy what is your favorite character?

family guy-the simpsons-or American dad

Not picking any favorites for myself I just want to know what you think about them.


Not too long now 'til the next new episode!

Family Guy

Is season 6 of Family Guy over or what? I havent seen a new episode in ages

Yes, we have to love them...

Who could not love this show? We have the bumbling, obese dad who always finds away to overcome whatever goofups he made to help this 'all american family' made up of a talking dog who is in love with the intelligent wife in this drama. We have the teenaged girl who is full of angst and the younger brother who does not know which end is up. Then thers is Stewy. A year old baby with the mouth of a dirty old man at times. Yeah. I love Stewey. And I love this family. Reminds me of mine. LOL
