The Cleveland Show on Fox
The Cleveland Show (Sundays, 8:30 p.m. ET)
continues to pollute the airwaves on Sunday evenings with Seth MacFarlane’s
signature brand of animated filth. The sexually charged dialogue, graphic
violence and nude slapstick that appeared in the October 11th episode
rightfully earned it the title of Worst TV Show of the Week.
Concerned over Cleveland
Junior’s inability to make friends, Cleveland sets out find him a buddy.
Inexplicably, Cleveland thinks
a lonely guy hanging out by the side of the road would make a good candidate.
He approaches the man and says, “Hey, sport. I've got a proposition for ya. My
name's Cleveland. How'd you like to play with Cleveland Jr.? ... Oh, you'll
love him. He's a little chubby but he's always up for a good time. A lot of
other kids have jerked him around, but I can tell you're the kind of guy that
would treat him right. Don't get me wrong. He's a handful, but a nice
handful. Look, I'll be honest with you: I'm tired of playing with him. You
wanna see him? Come over by the car and I'll let you have a look. C'mon, what
do you say? I'll give you 30 bucks right now if you play with him in the car.”
The man utters a codeword, causing a police surveillance team to surround
Cleveland with their guns drawn. Later, Cleveland muses, “You know, once I read
over the transcript, I could see how my words might have been misconstrued.”
Eventually, Cleveland convinces
Ernie - the son of Lester, a stereotyped redneck who lives next door – to hang
out with Cleveland. Ernie, however, quickly wears out his welcome when he moves
into the Brown residence. In one particularly ridiculous scene, Donna is in the
shower. With soap is in her eyes, she blindly reaches for her loofa, but grabs
Ernie's pet possum instead. Meanwhile, Cleveland disrobes to join Donna in the
shower. Donna wrestles with the possum and tosses it out of the shower at the
exact same time that Cleveland removes the towel from around his waist. The
possum lands in Cleveland crotch, covering his genitals. Cleveland screams and
punches at the possum in his crotch, whacks it with the towel rack, sprays it
with hairspray, and lights it on fire. Cleveland runs around the bathroom with
a lit possum on his crotch. He stops at the dresser and thrusts his hips
against it to try to extinguish the flame.
Fed up, Cleveland calls Child
Protective Services at Donna’s behest. Ernie is subsequently given away to
foster care, forcing Lester to get him back. But rather than follow the
guidelines of better parenting, Lester organizes a gun-toting posse to rescue
Ernie. In the ensuing gun-battle with the heavily armed foster parents, one of
Lester’s friends shoots himself in the head. Blood and brain fragments rain on
Cleveland and the social worker who are hiding nearby. The scene is disturbing
and excessively violent. At one point, Cleveland asks if he has brain in his
In lieu of actual wit or
creativity, MacFarlane’s franchises always fall back on cheap sex and gory
violence as crutches to get from one scene to the next. For this, The
Cleveland Show has one again been named Worst TV Show of the Week.
