I think that was more of a shot at Fox, pointing out how NBC's omnipresent ad campaign for "My Name Is Earl" led to a quirky out-of-the-norm sitcom without a laugh track becoming the #1 comedy on television whereas Fox's almost nonexistant ads for "Arrested Development" led to, well, the kind of ratings "Arrested Development" got.
"That's my problem - I'm too frank. That's why my mother shoved me down the stairs. But then she is fat."
I don't think I ever, at any point, wondered why Cleveland was a black guy that happened to act like a white guy. So I didn't need this origin story. At the very least, we got some decent laughs out of this episode.
