* 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]].

*** In the same episode, Rallo says the Franchise/{{Tarzan}} franchise needs to be revived. [[Film/TheLegendOfTarzan Come 2016...]]

* 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.

** A cutaway in "Ladies Night" has an exasperated [[Creators/TheWachowskis Andy Wachowski]] mixed up for his transsexual brother. A few years later, Andy would come out as transsexual as well.

** The season four episode "A Vas Deferens Between Men and Women" has a subplot where Rallo stars in a local theater production of ''Annie'' (which gets altered due to Rallo blowing the show's budget on his diva-like demands). A few years after this episode, there ''would'' be a feature film remake of ''Annie'' with the title character played by a black girl instead of a white girl.

** Choni isn't well liked by fans, if mostly because her character only amounts to being an annoying stereotype who causes unnecessary conflict every time she shows up, it doesn't help she became a [[AscendedExtra recurring character]] while her niece Cecilia who was far more popular with fans stayed in a minor role despite becoming [[spoiler: Junior's wife.]]
