Fox orders full season of 'Family Guy' spin-off

Fox announced today that it’ll order a full season of The Cleveland Show, an animated spin-off of Family Guy that’s set to bow in fall 2009. The show follows Cleveland Brown (voiced by Mike Henry), an African-American character from Guy, as he settles down with his high school sweetheart Donna (Sanaa Lathan) and her kids. Arianna Huffington will also join the cast in a recurring role.

The new comedy from Guy creator Seth MacFarlane had originally been picked up for only 13 episodes. Fox released this “statement” from Cleveland Brown: “Fox picking up nine more episodes of our show is proof that an African-American can make it in this country. This is a milestone for the United States of America.”

    Can’t wait! I thought it was premiering in January though.

    maybe I have alzheimers or something… but what happen with his current wife??? Loretta?or something!

    Joze – a while back Loretta cheated on Cleveland with Quagmire, and ended up deciding to leave him.

    I love Sanaa Lathan and will watch her in anything, but the casting of Arianna Huffington is really intriguing!

    I love Seth’s comment! Yeah, I thought they said the show was coming in Jan. Bummer to wait until the fall season. Cleveland even got to plug the show a week or so ago.

    Wow, does this small group of commenters represent all of Family Guy’s fan base, reading this magazine? I guess it’ll take another six years for the show to be appropriately appreciated. Anyway, I can’t wait for The Cleveland Show to be successful enough for Fox to finally cancel the dismally second rate American Dad. Speaking of which, I see Arianna Huffington in the recurring role just as the ‘distinguished’ Patrick Stewart recurs on American Dad.
