'Family Guy': Details on Cleveland's return

When The Cleveland Show wasn’t renewed in the spring, Family Guy fans wondered when and how Cleveland might make his return to his original home.

At Comic-Con in July, it was revealed that after spending the last four seasons in Stoolbend headlining his own animated comedy, the genial, mustachioed character would journey back to Quahog in an episode this season titled “He’s Bla-ack.” Now, more details about his homecoming have emerged. Family Guy executive producer Steve Callaghan says that the plan is to fully reintegrate Cleveland into Family Guy by moving him into his old house on Spooner Street with his blended family from The Cleveland Show (including Donna, Roberta, Cleveland Jr., and Rallo). While Cleveland will buddy up again with Peter, Quagmire, and Joe, he’ll have some some obstacles to overcome in his welcome-back episode: When a conflict arises between Lois and Cleveland’s wife, Donna, the two women inform their husbands that they can’t be friends anymore either. “It’s up to Cleveland and Peter to reconcile the women and see a way to allow these two guys to be friends again,” Callaghan tells EW.

'Cleveland Show' may be cancelled


UPDATE: Fox issued a few talking points about the Cleveland Show reports that pretty much reiterate what’s already been out there, though the network put stronger emphasis on the point that no decision has been made. Fox says the show will continue airing through May of this season. It has not been cancelled. But no episodes have been ordered for next season, with Fox noting they have plenty of previously ordered animated inventory from other shows in the pipeline to keep their slots full.

PREVIOUS: Things aren’t looking so good for Fox’s The Cleveland Show.

A blog run by the leaders of The Animation Guild flatly declared the series was cancelled.

If you’ve ever wished that you could watch Darren Criss belt out a few tunes on a Fox comedy besides Glee, Sunday is your lucky day.

But Vanessa may prove to be more of a hot handful than either of them bargained for. Wondering what kind of music the three of them would make together? Wonder no more. You can preview right here.

Fox renews 'Family Guy,' 'Cleveland Show'


Fox has renewed Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy and its spinoff The Cleveland Show.

No big surprise in either case: Family Guy will be back for a 10th season and Cleveland is getting its fourth. Fox also announced that the Family Guy finale will be its one-hour Return of the Jedi spoof that was released on DVD last year, while the Cleveland closer has the family going to Comic-Con. Fox has already renewed American Dad and The Simpsons, so with this the full Sunday night lineup will return. “For nine seasons, our viewers have been cracked up, delighted, surprised and, at times, gloriously disturbed by the mind of Seth MacFarlane — and they keep coming back for more,” said Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly. “The Griffins and the Browns have become cornerstones of our Sunday nights, and we can’t wait to find out what new adventures Seth, Mike and Rich cook up for them next season.”

Where did the time ago? It seems like just yesterday that we were anxiously awaiting the start of Lone Star; now we can barely remember that two-timing cad.

'Celebrity Apprentice': Gary Busey turns into the scariest pizza salesman ever! – EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Image Credit: Virginia Sherwood/NBC

The genius of Celebrity Apprentice is in watching former titans of the entertainment industry reduced to absurd tasks while also exposing how looney tunes they actually are in real life. Like, say, witnessing a onetime Academy Award Best Actor nominee delivering a passionate sermon on how to sell pizza. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Gary Busey. In this exclusive clip from the upcoming March 6 season premiere, Busey, country music star John Rich and dental wonder of the world Lil Jon discuss how they are going to convince people to buy their pizza. And then Busey pours on the Busey, morphing before our very eyes into the “Pepperoni Profit.” It’s hilarious, and also a little bit frightening. (Especially for me after my last harrowing encounter with the zany star.) See for yourself by clicking on the video player below (after the jump). And then let us know, would you buy a slice of pizza from Gary Busey?

Fall winners and losers: 'NCIS' reigns supreme; 'Dancing with the Stars' is most-watched reality show

2010-Fall-TV-StandingsImage Credit: Eric McCandless/ABC; Justin Lubin/Fox; Richard Cartwright/CBS; Eric McCandless/ABCWe’ve already seen the death of six new shows (Lone Star, My Generation, The Whole Truth, Undercovers, Outlaw and Running Wilde, though Fox hasn’t officially canceled the latter) as well as the departure of some old ones (So long, Medium! Looks like you’re out the door, too, Life Unexpected!) So it probably shouldn’t come as any surprise that HUT levels among CBS, NBC, Fox and ABC (that’s “homes using television”) are down 3 percent this year (from 39.7 million to 38.5 million).

Does that mean there weren’t enough good shows to watch on the Big Four this fall? Glee, Modern Family and The Good Wife fans would probably disagree, but it’s never good when so many freshman series tank before the holidays. Here’s how all the shows ranked in total viewers from Sept. 20 to Nov. 28:

1. NCIS (CBS) 21.3 million
2. Dancing with the Stars (ABC) 21.2 million
3. NFL Sunday (NBC) 20.2 million
4. Dancing with the Stars results (ABC) 18.5 million
5. NCIS: LA (CBS) 17.4 million
6. The Mentalist (CBS) 17.3 million
7. Criminal Minds (CBS) 16.2 million
8. CSI (CBS) 15.9 million
9. Two and A Half Men (CBS) 15.5 million
10. NFL Sunday pre-kickoff (NBC) 15.2 million
11. The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 15 million
12. Modern Family (ABC) 14.7 million
13. Grey’s Anatomy (ABC) 14.6 million
14. Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) 14 million
15. 60 Minutes (CBS) 13.9 million
16. The Good Wife (CBS) 13.7 million
17. Survivor: Nicaragua (CBS) 13.3 million
18. Blue Bloods (CBS) 13.25 million
19. Desperate Housewives (ABC) 13.22 million
20. Castle (ABC) 13 million READ FULL STORY
