Fox loves "The Cleveland Show." I mean it really, really loves it.
The network today confirmed that it’s picked up nine more episodes of the Seth MacFarlane "Family Guy" spinoff. The series had already been renewed for a full first season, and half of a second season.
Today’s news means Cleveland and Co. will be in production for at least two full seasons. And at the rate the show’s being renewed, producers 20th Century Fox TV should be announcing a syndication sale sometime next month (kidding! but not completely…).
"Cleveland" premiered last month to monster ratings and has settled in nicely Sundays at 8:30 p.m., serving as a great bridge between "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" (that’s Fox spin, but it happens to be true).
