* 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 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.

* DesignatedHero: Junior, due to often clinging the JerkassBall or being [[IdiotHoudini a legitimate irritance to everyone around him]], yet a large amount of his roles he is played as the victim for being chewed out or told to act his age (usually it ''is'' unscrupulous, but more due to the family's abrasive or hypocritical methods than the act itself). "The Hurricane!" is a prime example, in which Junior declares himself an Atheist, albeit a far less insufferable case than Brian. Despite this, the plot quickly becomes this show's version of "Not All Dogs Go To Heaven", with the family's moronically pious attitude going up against Junior's obnoxious mockery of religion (though "The Hurricane" doesn't smack of the same UnfortunateImplications that "Not All Dogs Go to Heaven" did).

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Kendra sits on her Rascal most of the time, but there are a few times when she's used her legs when there's food around. Is she just lazy or does the desire for food temporarily make her mobile?

* WhatAnIdiot: Roberta's friends have no idea that Mrs. Tubbs is her mom, even though Donna talked to her like a mom right in front of them and they share the same last name. It's not made clear whether her boyfriend Federline, who has been to their home multiple times, is aware that Donna is Roberta's mom and is just playing along with Roberta's lie or he's just that dumb.
