The Cleveland Show: Ms. Eck and Roberta

Yay!  Kind of awesome: Glee’s Sue Sylvester, actress Jane Lynch, will be guesting on The Cleveland Show January 10th. 

Lynch will voice character Ms. Eck, Roberta’s new teacher, on the Family Guy spin-off.  Michael Ausiello posted a mini interview with Lynch to commemorate the occasion:

Are you a fan of Family Guy?
JANE LYNCH:
I love
Family Guy. I am also appalled and shocked by Family Guy. And I am proud to say that several children in my family under the age of 10 get it and love it, too.

How is Ms. Eck similar to Sue Sylvester?
LYNCH:
They both lack filters and say whatever awful thing comes into their mind. In-the-head-and-out-the-mouth syndrome.

And how are they different?
LYNCH:
Ms. Eck lacks Sue’s icy Nordic aggression.

Your first reaction upon viewing yourself in ‘toon form?
LYNCH:
Ms. Eck may have the largest, most disproportionate butt in cartoon history.

Should be awesome!  Though I’ve gotta say, I’m gonna miss that icy Nordic aggression.

Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane Gets Put on Blast

ZING!  College Humor has truly got Seth MacFarlane’s number in this one!  Watch as they lambaste the Family Guy / American Dad / Cleveland Show creator in this new video:


I think that is SPOT ON!  I’ve always had an irrational distaste for Family Guy, even though I’ll admit to chortling it up as I watch.  Glad the College Humor folks are of the same mind.

Though I suppose Seth MacFarlane hate is nothing new.  His shows can be funny, but there’s a definite lack of artistry in everything he does (MAD MEN I MISS YOU ALREADY).
Comedy snobbery or comedy standards?  You be the judge.

Ha!  From Buzzfeed, a photo of Stewie and Brian from Family Guy, IRL:

Family Guy:Brian & Stewie IRL

Adorable!

Regs Family Guy and it’s spin-off, The Cleveland Show, premiered last night to big ratings: 10.2 million viewers for Family Guy, and a very respectable 9.4 million for Cleveland.

I happened to catch both last night and thought them both to be pretty decent. Cleveland was actually a pleasant surprise, as my expectations were set low low low.  The series follows Cleveland and Cleveland Jr’s move to Virginia, where Cleveland is reunited with his high school one-that-got-away, Donna and her family.  Though off to a slow start, there were a few good zingers, decent characters (aside from that terrible baby!), and fewer of those half-funny non-sequitors that make Family Guy so unbearable at times.  Sounds good to me.

Did you watch?

The Cleveland Show Gets a Promo!

Oh man!  It seems like months ago when we first heard about the Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show.

In fact, it HAS been months since we’ve received any updates on the Cleveland Brown-centered series.

But finally, something new has popped up, in the form of the show’s trailer, posted yesterday on Fox’s official YouTube channel.  Take a look at our jumping off point:

Not bad!  Though I must admit, I’m still a bit surprised Cleveland’s the Family Guy character who got his own series (as is Stewie!).

Which character would you rather see starring in his or her own spin-off?  Don’t say Meg, I won’t believe you.

The Cleveland Show

Fox today announced that it has ordered a full season of The Cleveland Show, the soon-to-be Family Guy spin-off centered on the popular (wait for it!) Cleveland Brown character.  The show is schedule for Fall 2009.

The series follows Cleveland as he settles down with high school sweetheart Donna in his hometown in Virginia with her kids Roberta and Rallo, and his own Cleveland, Jr.  Cleveland will be joined by a ragtag group of miscellaneous neighbors, including talking bears Tim (voiced by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane) and his wife Arianna (voiced by political pundit/author/nationally syndicated columnist/The Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington).

What the fudge?  Arianna Huffington?!

You heard me right!  Cleveland! Talking bears!  Arianna Huffington!  You can’t make this stuff up.  What?  David Lynch, are you involved?  Huh?

I’ll def be checking it out, even if only to furrow my brow for 5 minutes, then change the channel.
