Dont know if this was posted yet or not but on the heels of American Dad, <The Simpsons (The W), and Bob's Burgers (The W) being renewed, FOX has announced that Family Guy and the Cleveland Show (insidetv.ew.com) have been renewed. Also, that the FG season finale will be the Return of the Jedi spoof.

I have mixed feelings about this. It's becoming painfully clear that the writers are getting more and more bored with FG. It hasn't been consistently funny in a long time.

Cleveland, on the other hand, is getting better. I wonder if that has anything to do with them turning Cleveland into Black Peter Griffin?

I understand FG being stagnant, though it does have its moments. It deserves another year to get its act together. But 'The Cleveland Show' getting better?!?!? It's been a near ripoff of several FG characters and jokes and watering them down. It's terribly inconsistent with too much focus on some of the worst characters on the show (Roberta, Holt, Terry) and too little on those who deserve it much more (Tim and Donna among others). With Family Guy, many of the episodes may be bad but you will always find at least one memorable skit or joke from each episode. Having watched about a dozen or so episodes of 'Cleveland' this season, I can honestly say that I barely remember any particular skit or joke that stood out in a good way.

If anything, 'The Cleveland Show' has gone down the tubes the last year or so. It needed to be ditched so that we could keep Animation Domination as Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, FG, and AD. All this renewal will do is give AD the shaft once again as the odd show out that goes into hiatus for a good chunk of the season and put that great show in danger of cancellation. And if you love America, you love Stan Smith, proud American. You can't let America get cancelled.

I fiesta on Cinco de Mayo, have some paczki on Casmir Pulaski Day, and get hammered both on St. Patrick's Day and during Octoberfest. It's a feature, not a bug.

We're a nation of immigrants, the great melting pot. I don't see the least bit of irony there.

Honestly, what else could they replace those shows with? They get good ratings for a Sunday night and probably cost less then actually doing a live TV show. Family Guy needs a big event which after the murder mystery this season, I thought they would get. Instead, it has been on auto pilot. Cleveland Show has its moments. The only show I could see replacing them is Archer with is on FX, but that show does only 13 episodes a season and I would hate to have to see what it would be like stretched out to 22 or 23.

It is technology that limits the number of episodes, not the writing. It takes about a whole month (tvsquad.com) to complete one episode. If it was done like South Park and finished in about a week, they could bang out more shows and have a traditional season of episodes.
