I do when theres literally nothing on, and Its fairy crap, It isn't a patch on American Dad/Family Guy, if they wanted a Family Guy character to have a spin off so badly, Joe or Glen Quagmire should've got one because their funnier..

I am surprised this show has lasted long. It's ratings are below average than what a primetime animated show should be getting. It gets about 2-3 million a week which would be huge for cable but for a sunday night show that is a spin off for one of the biggest cartoons around, that is poor.

I think FOX got a little cocky and assumed they had a hit on their hands as it was spin-off from Family Guy because The Cleveland show was given a second and third season before the first season had even finished airing.

Fox have gotten rid of shows that have given better ratings than this show.

I like Cleveland. I don't care for the characters or the plots but there are some cracking one liners in it.

I dont like TCS though FG i still watch and get entertainment from though not as much as the earlier seasons

It's not as bad as everyone says it is. Seeing some of the comedies Fox have commissioned in recent years, I'd rather they kept renewing Cleveland thanks...

I do like this show. I don't watch it all the time but it has help me pass time when I got nothing on tv. I'm not even a family guy fan

Mort Goldman should have been given the spin-off.
Much funnier character than Cleveland.

In commerical terms, TCS has been going for four seasons, so that's not a "flop".
Having said that, I've watched episodes from three of the show's seasons and none
of them struck me as being very funny or interesting- compared to "Family
Guy" and "American Dad!" it just comes across as sub-par. For instance,
even though David Lynch is in TCS, his character is never used in the
same clever ways as Adam West or Patrick Stewart are in their
MacFarlane shows.
