The much larger problem is that Cleveland isn't an inherently interesting, or, worse, funny, character.
For a certain segment of the audience - men, boys, evil babies, talking bears - it's likely to go over quite well.
Yeah, sure, I hated myself for laughing. But, hey. I'm sorry. What can I say? I laughed.
If "The Cleveland Show" isn't quite as sharp-tongued or focused yet as "Family Guy," it's got the eccentricity to fit into broadcast television's most off-center evening.
There are a lot of elements that make The Cleveland Show seem like it should work better than it does, but as a whole, it hasn't quite managed to stand up and differentiate itself enough from its parent show to be taken as its own thing.
Has anybody noticed what a patronizing mess Seth MacFarlane's new The Cleveland Show is?
You don't really have to be a reactionary to find MacFarlane's comedy revolting, or to see his "art" as the mass-media equivalent of peddling smut to kids, do you?
There's a lot to like here. It might take a while for the show to grow out of its Family Guy shadow, but with a greater focus on wacky family focused stories, we might get to see much personality burst out of of the normally sedate Cleveland.
The show has a soft and sweet center... But this positive message is almost completely buried in sophomoric humor, and it's hardly worth the effort to sift through the dreck to get there.
"The Cleveland Show" makes a few meta jokes about how it knows it's racist, which completely absolves it of racism! She how that works! Seth MacFarlane: Genius.
Audience Reviews for The Cleveland Show: Season 1
Jan 12, 2021The Cleveland Show Season 1 was largely unfunny. The jokes fell flat. There was barely any character development. It felt boring most of the time. Cleveland himself was flanderized. Luckily, Season 2 was a massive improvement and did much better than the first. So did later seasons.
Dec 25, 2019I wish more people would appreciate this seris like I do then it would have still counted if less people quit wasting their time of complain about the show and say that it is a token version of family guy which it kind of is but at least it has a way to try to entertain it viewers and don't try so hard to pushed it humor on the audience like family guy if more people quit spending time complaining about the show they would enjoy like I do
Apr 16, 2019Very good, very good characters 9,99/10-Anton R. Skovborg
Nov 12, 2018I watched 2 and a half episodes and I was cracking up
Jan 30, 2017It was ok while it lasted
Jun 14, 2016MacFarlane should have scrapped this on the cutting room floor. Comes nowhere near the hilarity of Family Guy, whilst introducing new levels of absurdity that just don't quite fly.
Mar 17, 2015The Cleveland Show is largely unfunny and stubbornly unsure about what makes an adult cartoon relatable or interesting.

Jun 11, 2014I have just became a fan of Family Guy so I'm not quite sure how similar this show is to it but what I can say is this was an unnecessary spin-off of a pretty good character in a good T.V. series. This makes embarrassing spin-off makes family guy look good. I can't remember laughing at any joke in this show and if I did, it might've been very few. There is too much crying scenes with Cleveland which gets if not quite contrived. Even the scenes with Peter still do not make it better. I wish this show was taken off air way earlier since the episodes got worse.
Jun 09, 2014Seth MacFarlane's tired formula is once again used in an attempt to give a spinoff to an uninteresting side character which results in a show where the only likable character is a talking bear and not one member of the main cast.
