* CreatorsPet: Donna seems capable of getting away with significantly more things than other characters are. Most notable examples include treating her husband like shit to the point of nearly killing him and not learning a damn thing over it, being angry that he's sad that someone he spent nearly 15 years of his life with died, and going out of her way to emotionally abuse Rallo, complete with song on one occasion. It's kind of amazing Cleaveland is willing to deal with her, but she still tends to be important to any given plot 80% of the time.

** It is very, ''very'' difficult not to dislike Arianna the Bear. Though as this seems deliberate on the show's part this makes her more of a HateSink.
** Donna Tubbs fits the bill as well, due to her SassyBlackWoman frequently crossing over into being an outright JerkAss.

** "March Dadness" has [=LaVarr=] state (Correctly at the time) that no #16 seed had ever beat a #1 seed team in the mens college basketball tournament. That was undone in 2018, when the University Of Maryland, Baltimore County would shock #1 ranked Virginia in the first round.

* LoveItOrHateIt: It wouldn't be a Creator/SethMacFarlane show without a certain amount of controversy over whether or not it was a good show.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Terry. He comes out as the first major LGBT character in the show, but the writers just get rid of him and place Dr. Fist as the new guy on Cleveland's FiveManBand. The fact that Dr. Fist had [[FlatCharacter next to no personality]] doesn't help.
** Roberta, who becomes DemotedToExtra pretty fast due to her original voice actress leaving and the writers' inability to write for teenage girls, despite the fact that Roberta is cooler and arguably funnier than either [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Meg]] or [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad Hayley.]]

** Roberta, who becomes became DemotedToExtra pretty fast almost instantly due to her original voice actress leaving Nia Long being replaced halfway into the first season, her replacement Reagan Gomez-Preston becoming pregnant shortly after and the writers' inability to write for teenage girls, despite girls (which was the fact same problem that the writers on ''Family Guy'' had with Meg that resulted in her becoming the show's resident ButtMonkey). Shame too since Roberta is cooler and arguably funnier than was either just as cool and funny as [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Meg]] or [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad Hayley.]]Hayley]] (if not more).
** Donna's mother Dee Dee. She debuted in Season 3's "Mama Drama" and would only show up four more times during the next season (one of which was in the episode that turned out to be the series finale) before being unceremoniously written out altogether when the ''Family Guy'' episode "Candy, Quahog Marshmallow" revealed that [[spoiler:she committed suicide by shooting herself]].

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Some viewers don't like this show (or initially didn't like the show) because it is/was yet another cookie-cutter wacky family show by Creator/SethMacFarlane, which is true, but ''The Cleveland Show'' did prove in its short time that it was funny without copying (much) from ''Family Guy''. It also didn't help that Cleveland went from being the OnlySaneMan of the group to essentially a black Peter Griffin.

** Rallo's joke about the Golden State Warriors having no defense in "[=BFF's=]". 4 years later, the Warriors would win their first title since 1975.

* GrowingTheBeard: The show abandoned most of its connections to ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' by season two (not many cutaways, but plently of bizarre asides and BigLippedAlligatorMoment's to remind viewers that this is a Creator/SethMacFarlane show) and grew into its own. Sadly, this was the same time that FOX fell out of love with the show and screwed it over so bad that it's now canceled.
