Ok, we're on a Family Guy winning streak! This was another good episode and they were even nice enough to bring Cleveland back for a whole episode!
A lot of good stuff here, including Peter getting the guard to beat up Cleveland and Peter beating himself up since he was the biggest guy in the prison. They didn't even try and go for the serious route at the end. It was all funny the whole way.
And yes, I got a good laugh out of The Simpsons cast as the jury.
That Simpsons visual gag and line was great to see. This was the first new Family Guy I have seen in many a year and it was really good. The throwaway log bit was awesome.
I will say that they were a little too persuasive in noting that they have nothing left to offer in terms of story endings/lessons learned. They don't mind telling you that they are just going through the motions at this point.

I liked that Peter had Cleveland's show on his ringtone and then crushed Cleveland by bringing up how poor their ratings were. A good episode for what its worth. I think the winning combo is Stewie with a gun. So far, when he has busted it out we have gotten good episodes.

The only saving grace is that Aloha was not going to win anyway. As you say, this really drives home the face-time argument. Joe got screwed (and he said as much) by hardly ever appearing in the audition episodes.
