Fox Announces Family Guy Spinoff: Cleveland

It looks like Cleveland Brown, neighbor to Family Guy's Peter Griffin, will be the star of his own show. Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane, along with Cleveland's voice actor Mike Henry and former Simpsons writer Rich Appel are collaborating on the project, tentatively titled Cleveland.

As Hollywood Reporter puts it, "Cleveland, who plays off black stereotypes, is the most levelheaded among Griffin's trio of friends." That's for sure. In fact, I'm probably more likely to tune into this spinoff than I am to watch Family Guy these days, as I sometimes get tired of Peter Griffin's outrageousness.

Cleveland seems like an ideal choice for a show's main character; as the gentle, slow-speaking, everyman, there's probably a lot of funny stuff to be found in his life.

What do you think about Cleveland? Will you check it out, or are you about done with Seth McFarlane and his animated series?

I enjoy Family Guy... It's cool that a known character is getting a spin off. I can't really get into American Dad it's like watching Joe lol

Cleveland is my least favorite character, I think it'll be a rip off of Family Guy (obviously) and of course it'll have cheap laughs, but it probably won't do well.

Okay, what? Alright. I understand the people who are all, 'Why Cleveland?'--but really, it can't be Brian or Quagmire. Brian's a member of the Griffins, being one half of the Brian-Stewie double act, and Quagmire is *the* most one note character on the show, save for maybe the paedophilic old man next door. Joe could've pulled off a spin-off, perhaps something in the vein of action movie satire. But I don't think Cleveland is a bad choice. His humour's dry, but so was Bob Newhart's, right? If they were going to make a spinoff, I'd've been happier if it'd been something Hot Fuzz-like with Joe, but Cleveland's fine with me.

I agree with starrose and snarkypants, if quagmire or brian had a show, that would be cool to watch. But they should just keep with family guy and just come up with new stuff. The reruns are getting kind of boring.

I don't think Cleaveland can carry a show and I seriously hope that they don't drop that character from Family Guy because he's only funny when he's playing off the other characters. No more spin offs!

seriously? why? am i the only one who dislikes family guy? I liked it the first time around, but sort of wish it never came back.

I think everyone on here is pretty dead on. I have been a huge fan of Family Guy, but lately it has become more of a show I flip to when there is nothing new on. I'm not sure I could say the same for an all Cleveland show. Maybe if it were Brian or Quagmire.
