‘Cleveland Show’ gets third season order

'Family Guy' spinoff set for 2011-2012 season

Fox has given an early third-season order to its animated hit “The Cleveland Show.”

The “Family Guy” spinoff heads into its second season this fall. Animated shows require long lead times, however, and this gives the series’ producers a jump on prepping the show’s third year.

20th Century Fox TV’s “Cleveland” reps the second series out of Fox’s recent freshman class to already receive an order for the 2011-12 TV season, along with “Glee.” Add “The X-Factor” to the mix — also already picked up for 2011 — and Fox’s fall 2011 season is already shaping up a year before launch.

Pickup was a no-brainer for the net; “Cleveland” scored the top marks among new scripted series with adults 18-34 and teens.

“Cleveland,” co-created by Seth MacFarlane, Rich Appel and Mike Henry, features the voices of Henry, MacFarlane, Sanaa Lathan, Reagan Gomez, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jason Sudeikis, as well as Arianna Huffington in a recurring role.
