The family was conceived by MacFarlane, he took the Family Guy character, Cleveland Brown, and his son, Cleveland Brown Jr., and redesign Cleveland Brown Jr. to make him look older, and softly-spoken. Before the first episode aired it was already renewed for season 2, which had 22 episodes.[2] On June 10, 2010, three weeks after the first season ended it was renewed for another season (season 3).[3] It was also renewed for season 4. The show was canceled in May 2013, airing its final episode on May 19. There is four seasons of The Cleveland Show and 88 episodes.

The series shows the life of Cleveland Brown, his son, Cleveland Brown Jr., his wife, Donna, and her kids, Roberta and Rallo.

The show uses a lot of profanity and sex scenes, which is why the show is rated TV-14, and rarely TV-PG.

According to critics, the show is an okay show, however some say it is a horrible show. The Parents Television Council said that the first season episodes was the worst show of the week. About 6 million people watched the show for season one. It was nominated for an award on the 36th People's Choice Awards, and on the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards.



At the start of the show, Cleveland Brown and his son, Cleveland Brown Jr., move from the fictional town of Quahog, Rhode Island to Stoolbend, Virginia.

Cleveland said to Glenn Quagmire that he is getting a spin-off on Family Guy episode, "Baby Not on Board".[4]

Originally, the theme song had a line with Cleveland Brown, he said "happy black-guy face", this was changed to "happy mustached face".
