Fox Renews FAMILY GUY and AMERICAN DAD, But THE CLEVELAND SHOW Future is Uncertain

Well, at least part of Seth MacFarlane‘s portion of the Animation Domination line-up can celebrate today. EW has word that Fox has renewed Family Guy for an eleventh season and American Dad for an eighth season, each consisting of the standard 22 episodes. That means the Smith and Griffin households are happy, but the Brown family isn’t thrilled, at least not yet, as Fox is holding off on a decision to renew The Cleveland Show for now.

It’s not clear if they’re waiting until the upfronts to announce it (why not just hold all this information until then?) or if they’re waiting until the last possible minute to bring it back. Honestly, the animated series started strong, but it’s never reached the caliber of Family Guy or American Dad (which is vastly underrated and sometime better than the former MacFarlane series). Apparently there’s enough episodes in the works to keep The Cleveland Show going for a fourth season, so a decision might not necessarily come soon. Stay tuned as the upfronts get closer and more information becomes available on all series renewals and new series pick-ups.
