* 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 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.

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

* CrossesTheLineTwice: As with anything Creator/SethMacFarlane makes, this is heavily used in many episodes.
** In the start of ''Sex and the Biddy'', a family is bringing their grandfather in a building, implied to be the family's home...except that its the local retirement home, and the family dons the old man with a red bow and ding-dong-ditches. The best part: the population went from 68 to 69.

** "A Rodent Like This" where is revealed that Fat Cleveland Junior is actually a spy who killed the original hyperactive Slim Cleveland Junior, as part of a gambit to assassinate Tim, who's the head of a terrorist sleeper-cell. Originally a WhamEpisode that explain why Cleveland Jr. is different from his original version in ''Family Guy'', this is never brought up again in the show and Tim is never killed. So probably was an elaborate prank on Rallo.

** Cleveland's co-worker Arch for being a monotone jerkass who's entire character revolves around being TheBore.

** Cleveland's father Freight Train as well due to the abuse he puts his son through. Not helped by the fact that almost all of said abuse is PlayedForLaughs.



* 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.

* BizarroEpisode: The ''Film/DieHard'' parody, which, had it not had been for the show's cancellation, would have had sequel episodes, like ''Family Guy'''s ''Star Wars'' parodies.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: There were a lot of jokes about the show facing cancellation, but "[=BFFs=]" might have the one that was most on the nose. Cleveland heads back to Quahog to visit Peter, leading to Stewie to ask if his show was cancelled already and if he was trying to come back to ''Family Guy''. That's exactly what happened about a year after this show ended.
