Just like Scrappy, Cleveland is getting his own show (The Cleveland Show) tonight on Fox at 8:30p. Cleveland Brown leaves Quahog tonight with his son and heads to LA, but he makes a quick detour to his hometown of Stoolbend, VA and winds up marrying the second Mrs. Cleveland Brown! Cleveland and Cleveland Jr move in with Donna and her two kids, teenage Roberta and 5 year old Rallo. And it is going to take a lot of adjusting for the 5 of them to get to used to each other. Cleveland also has new neighbors that he gets to drink with and including a bear and a redneck. Wait until you see what happens between him and the redneck on the third episode. Let’s just say it is so politically incorrect and I love that!!!
Tonight’s episode sets up the Family Guy spinoff, but starting next week you get the feel for this hysterical show! Just like Family Guy it has that wrong but oh so right humor, but unlike the show it is spinning off from it is a little more of a family sitcom. Not saying Family Guy isn’t a family sitcom, but this one has more the feel of the classic ones from the ’70s!
A few weeks ago I spoke with Cleveland (Mike Henry) and his son Cleveland Jr (Kevin Michael Richardson) at the Fox Eco party and they talked about the animated show that debuts tonight! Mike Henry told me, “You haven’t begun to see who Cleveland is. I mean, he’s a sweetheart, you root for him, but he’s also a whack job. So you will see a lot of that soon.” I can’t wait to what a real whack job he turns out to be, about time he broke out of that shell. Kevin Michael Richardson told me he has to remind Mike Henry “that he’s white because he is so good that he even fools me. I have to remind myself, you know, so, this guy is fantastic.” Both of them are fantastic with all the voices they do on The Cleveland Show! What is also fantastic is the list of guest stars they have coming up on the show like Earth, Wind and Fire, Ed Asner and Kanye West to name a few. When you listen to the above interview you will hear who else they have and also Kevin does a dead-on Barack Obama impression!
So check out The Cleveland Show tonight and every Sunday at 8:30p on Fox for a show that will make you LYAO!!!
