The Family Guy spinoff has already had more episodes ordered for it before its first episode has aired.
May 22, 2009
Fox has announced that 13 more episodes of The Cleveland Show will air in the Fall of 2010.
The original order for Cleveland's first season was 13 episodes. Fox quickly added nine more to make it a full 22-episode season. This latest episode order shows that Fox must like what it has seen. By placing an order now, it is speculated that Fox will keep production on the show uninterrupted, since animated programs require a longer than typical lead time to get to air.
Look for the first episode of The Cleveland Show on Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 8:30 PT/ET.
