GoldSpider: I get it, Farkers by and large just want to get rid of the black version of Family Guy.  I see...


Oh, that stings.

Ow ow ow.

I guess it's true what they say.

"The truth hurts."

(Hangs head in shame.)

tnpir: I'll join in the chorus of those who say Family Guy and American Dad are great, but the Cleveland Show was pretty bad.

Although this episode of Family Guy last week with Peter going "ferral" was absolute shiat.


I like Seth's cartoons but three shows in one night is just too much.  Cleveland is definitely the weakest so it should go.  Personally, I like American Dad the best and don't even watch every new episode of Family Guy any more.
 
2013-04-17 05:26:10 PM  
Thank god, hopefully they bring back "Allen Gregory"!!!!

scottydoesntknow: Shazam999: Tremolo: Just keep the writers the hell away from American Dad, it's getting downright sublime.

AD is one of the best shows on TV, period.  "Rapture's Delight" will be a classic forever and needs to be put into the Smithsonian.

Every single Christmas Special has been fan-farking-tastic. My favorite (which actually beat out the Rapture episode) was "For Whom the Sleigh Bell Tolls". That one had me rolling the whole time.


"Stanny Slickers 2: The Legend of Ollie's Gold"  is an absolutely brilliant episode.  Great show.  I'll just pile on here that I never found Cleveland particularly funny.
 
2013-04-17 05:34:02 PM  
YES!  I have, to date, refused to watch even a single episode of this show.  I want him back on Family Guy!  Maybe now my dream is finally coming true!
 
2013-04-17 05:34:30 PM  
There was an eight episode stretch in the second season that made it better than FG or American Dad.  But then it went to crap again.  It's still better than a going through the motions Family Guy is.

Rev.K: Meh. Their Die Hard spoof had me laughing pretty damn hard.

And I don't even smoke weed anymore.



The Die Hard spoof was farking terrible. 2 genuinely funny joke (and one of the two was a joke that had been recycled about a dozen times). A few grins, and a half-hour of missed opportunity  for what should have been a easy 1/2 hour of hilarity.


So happy the show was canceled.

I'm always amused that some people can love Family Guy while they absolutely hate The Cleveland Show.

Agreed- Bob's Burgers freaking rocks.  Definitely some of the 'freshest' comedies on the fox lineup.

This. It's the only show in that block I bother with anymore.

There was a recent ep where Clevelands wife says "Honey, I am about to make your dream come true!"

and he says "Oh boy, I get to go back to Family Guy!"

Of course they will bring Cleveland (and probably Cleveland Jr. too) back to Quahog. They were the only two characters on TCS that could occasionally work.

How do you get rid of the rest of the family? Easy. Divorce. They played that marriage with the same irreverence as the other shows without ever establishing a firm foundation of history and commitment between the characters.

This will be the best thing ever if they can bring KOTH back. And, no, Brittney Murphy's death should not keep this from happening. She moved away with Lucky and the baby. Move on.

/won't happen, i know
//yes, i watch too many cartoons

As if it'll really matter since all the family characters will be folded back into the mothership or American Dad.

Subdue their bellies: I'm really going to miss all those memorable characters, like... umm... you know, like... that one guy.


This was such a huge part of the problem. Who will be missed from that entire cast? Nothing ever worked. Like who's your favorite character on that show that isn't in the main cast? You could have a thousand answers for Family Guy or American Dad. But on the Cleveland Show?
 
2013-04-17 05:58:33 PM  
I don't get all the Cleveland Show hate. It made me laugh, but, I apparently am in the minority on liking this show.

Love Family Guy and it's still funny as hell. Cleveland Show on the other hand is awful and bland.

Seconded. ESPECIALLY if someone likes family guy - which, if we're honest, has become one of two scenes: 1) "remember that time when..", or 2) akward pause humor.
 
2013-04-17 06:27:05 PM  
Its strange, i have no problem with Seth Macfarlane yet the show of his i enjoy the most is the one he has the least involvement with.

You might have been tainted by the first half of season 1. Actually try and watch American Dad now...It is nothing like Family Guy.  It found its style when Stan of Arabia Pt 2 Aired.  It is pure awesomeness.  No cut-away gags, long jokes, and it doesn't try to push the envelope "just because".  It is absurd in a good way.  I barely watch FG anymore but I can't get enough of American Dad.

One of my favorite scenes:   Hello desk sandwich
 
2013-04-17 06:30:21 PM  
Good, now maybe they will start showing American Dad more.

imageshack.us

Hated Bob's Burgers at first. But I started paying more attention to it and it grew on me. The kids are a riot.

And that seen with Cleveland in the bath tub.
Anybody know where that came from?
- Very obscure -
 
2013-04-17 06:33:30 PM  
I think The Cleveland Show is passably entertaining, but I won't mourn its passing. I actually kind of feel the same way about Family Guy and to a lesser extend American Dad. None of them seem that hilarious most of the time anymore, and I honestly don't know if its the show's decline or I've just tired of the schtick.

As for Bob's Burgers, I freaking love that show. Along with Archer, they are my favorite animated series currently. I was hesitant to give BB a chance due to the the animation style, but it has grown on me. It's the kids that make that show, imo.

I knew it would be that one! Love that clip. The Principal is probably my favorite character outside the main group. Barry would be his direct competition. He really shines in the episode where he goes off his meds and becomes a super villain.

"I found this on your front door"
"Ugh, It's a door mat Barry"
"Who's Matt Berry?"
 
2013-04-17 06:49:11 PM  
At least they haven't had an hour long "Decision" special to decide if they should keep it or not.
 
2013-04-17 06:53:46 PM  
It's cancelled. Fox won't say it's cancelled until May, because that's what EVERY NETWORK does.

But it's a cartoon. If it wasn't renewed by about 5 months, it wasn't ever going to be.

I think you misunderstood me. I love all three. Even with the stupid parts of FG and Cleveland I think they all have some good jokes. But you are right, American Dad is the best of the bunch.

Agreed.  But the King of the Hill opening rocked
 
2013-04-17 07:03:14 PM  
Finally.  Could never watch it.   Family Guy is wallowing around in mediocrity as well.  I concur with the dude who said last week's episode of feral Peter was shiat.

American Dad still seems to have it though.  Great ass spanking episode.  I didn't even realize I was fapping till it was too late.
 
2013-04-17 07:21:55 PM  
Eh Cleveland show was OK. I just started watching Bob's Burgers and I have to say I think it's funnier than either Family Guy or American Dad.
 
2013-04-17 07:28:54 PM  

wildcardjack: Maybe if they don't spread themselves so thin they can make the primary show better.

Ugh... Who am I kidding.

[images2.wikia.nocookie.net image 792x612]


See, you can't comment on the quality of Family Guy by using something from the show where they crack open a newspaper on the Tuesday morning before airtime and say "Which article can we sermonize about for 22 minutes?"

Die Hard spoof was terribul, just terribul.  Overall though I found the show okay.  It had a decent run for being mediocre-ish, good enough.  Not every cancellation is some huge tragedy either for the viewer or the producers.

Of course that's only because it had the cast of American Dad in it.

I don't think American Dad and Family Guy are similar at all. Somewhere around season 3, American Dad became brilliant and seemingly no one noticed. It doesn't use cutaways like Family Guy, And when it does a pop culture reference, it actually makes fun of it, unlike Family Guy, which will take a scene and just replace a main character with Peter and do nothing funny with it.

Agree with bolded statement completely. Love when Steve is trying to be popular so he smacks down some girl. When Principal Lewis sees, he smashes Steve's face with a coffee pot and leans over him and cackling just says "Yeeeeeeeeeeah."

Too bad, because it's actually the second best Seth show on right now. American Dad is balls to the wall crazy so that's an obvious #1 choice, and Family Guy is seriously coasting right now.

On a separate note, I've been watching it on Netflix recently, and I've noticed that the writers have zero idea what to do with Roberta (the step-daughter). Holt the dwarf gets more storylines than she does.
