Good news, Cleveland fans! Your favorite Family Guy spin-off series has been picked up for a second season! Wait a second. There aren’t any Cleveland fans. Because no one has even seen the first season yet. From the Hollywood Reporter:
Fox is so high on “Cleveland,” the upcoming spinoff from hit “Family Guy,” that it has ordered a second season.
The new 13-episode pickup brings the total order for the show to 35 episodes — and that’s months before the series has even premiered.
Huh. In an industry where new shows are rarely given the chance to find an audience before being pulled from the air, at a time in which the entire world is holding its breath to see what will happen with the economic collapse, this just makes sense. It’s just a wonderful example of Hollywood bravely giving America what it wants.
Good work, everyone.
