'The Cleveland Show' is Reportedly Cancelled, Reportedly Answering My Prayers

Posted By on Wed, Apr 17, 2013 at 9:55 AM

I'm torn regarding Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. I think he, personally, is a hilarious talent — a great comic writer, actor, singer, etc. He loves what he does, and it shows. I appreciate the hell out of that.

At the same time, he gets lazy, such as his constant lowering to the basest jokes possible, even in higher-concept episodes (say, the "Road to..." episodes of Family Guy).

Well, one of MacFarlane's similarly lazy properties, The Cleveland Show (following the same casting structure as his other shows, but with more black folk!), is reportedly going away, according to sources for animation blog Cartoon Brew, citing talk from The Animation Guild, and looking at ratings numbers for Cleveland.

Whether or not Cleveland is cancelled, MacFarlane will be fine — he's got a live-action TV show and a comedy-western movie in the works — plus, his shows American Dad and Family Guy are still humming right along.
