Seth MacFarlane continues to dominate the Fox Network with his latest series “The Cleveland Show.” The “Family Guy” spin-off just ended it’s first season a couple of weeks ago and was given the green light for a second. Now according to several sources Fox has kicked it up a notched and have renewed it for a third.
“The Cleveland Show” was this season’s highest-rated half-hour series among teens and adults 18-34. And we all know how networks covet the 18-34 demographic. A third season pick up may sound premature but it actually makes sense considering season 2 has already wrapped. The new episodes are filled with high profile guest stars like Justin Timberlake,T-Pain, Michael Stipe, Snoop Dogg, Tony Hawk, Fred Schneider of the B-52s and Larry Mullen Jr. of U2.
In a recent interview with the New York Times, creator and star Mike Henry said that season 3 will take it to the next level.
“Now that we’ve established our form, we want to break the form. More guest stars, more music, more high energy. We just want to pack more into our shows.”
He’s definitely got the guest stars down. For some odd reason people love to do voice work on these shows.
“The Cleveland Show” airs on Sunday nights at 8:30 pm.
What do you think of Fox picking up The Cleveland Show for a third season?
