Hey guys, its your girl, KrisSimsters and let me ask you a question: Are you sick of The Cleveland Show? Are you sick of knowing the theme song by heart, knowing when the jokes comes in and are you sick of knowing what works and what doesn’t work? Seeing the same 88 episodes on a constant wheel of syndication?
Well if your like me, then the answer is definitely yes. While the Family Guy spin-off was good, the reason why it was cancelled was obvious and since then, its been a couch potato on [Adult Swim]’s couch. And yes, the same can be said for King of the Hill, especially since both shows ended around the same time, but honestly, King of the Hill is more entertaining. At least Bob’s Burgers, American Dad!, and Family Guy has the somewhat decency of giving us new episodes. Either way, I’m getting tired of The Cleveland Show if you feel the same, then here are five shows that should get The Cleveland Show‘s time slot.
Five Shows that Should Definitely Replace The Cleveland Show:
5). Moral Orel (2005-2008):
This is probably one of Adult Swim’s best shows, an unforgotten gem that has now turned into a cult classic. Moral Orel started out as an optimistic, church-going show and turned into something more. This was–and still is–one of Adult Swim’s most serious shows and I miss watching it. I honestly wouldn’t mind seeing the reruns and the prequel again.
4). Archer (2009-): It might not come to a shock to some, but I love Archer. There’s something about the former spy turned P.I and it might be another way for the show to catch up after season seven finale. Yes, Archer also airs on Comedy Central and FXX, but I would want the same deal for Archer that we get from shows such as American Dad!, Family Guy, and Bob’s Burgers; air the new episodes on the night they’ve appeared and then air them again a week later on Adult Swim. And honestly, this is from the guy who helped create Sealab 2020 and Sealab 2021. The least you can do is give him the benefit of the doubt.
3). Space Dandy (2014):
I love Space Dandy, which is why I personally believe that it should be on Adult Swim. Honestly, it could match up to Rick and Morty with its space adventures alone. The story lines per episode can vary between fun moments and sad moments, especially with its final moments. Even if Adult Swim won’t put Space Dandy on the air, given that it’s an anime and we can only have anime for only three hours one day a week, it’s the thought that counts.
2). Space Ghost Coast to Coast (1994-2008):
This was probably the show to watch back when Adult Swim was still new. This show existed before Adult Swim was even created. I loved watching it when I was younger, and this honestly was a great show. And if it wasn’t for Space Ghost, then I wouldn’t have ended up liking Aqua Teen Hunger Force or The Brak Show. The episodes don’t have to be new, thought I would honestly prefer it, but at least Space Ghost reruns would be better–and longer–than The Celeveand Show.
- Rick and Morty (2013-): This was honestly going to be my #1 pick, but I realized that the episodes would be watered down due to the time slot and they already have reruns on the weekends, so while it could possibly work, I don’t want to skip out on any of the gore.
- The Boondocks (2005-2014): Another option that would possibly work, but I want a new season to make up for the season that shan’t be named and I want Aaron McGruder to actually come back on staff and get off his Black Jesus kick. We have a whole election full of jokes and I can only see South Park and The Boondocks doing their political jokes right, no matter who wins.
- South Park (1997-): As awesome as South Park is and as much as I love it, this show will probably never be on Adult Swim for two reasons: 1). It’s owned by Viacom and 2). It’ll probably costs a lot of money for them to put South Park on the air. The only reason why Adult Swim still airs American Dad! after it’s move to TBS is because TBS is basically Adult Swim and like Family Guy and The Celevand Show, it’s a Seth MacFarlane show.
1). Bob’s Burgers (2011-):
More Bob’s Burgers. It’s better than The Cleveland Show, the episodes are still fresh, and it’s an extra episode. Lets be honest, nobody else wants The Cleveland Show, if they did then it would have gotten picked up around the same time American Dad! did, they both got cancelled around the same time. In the beginning, I used to love the Family Guy spin-off and I was kinda sad when it was cancelled, but as I’ve stated before, seeing the same 88 episodes creates dead air. So why not just put on one more episode of Bob’s Burgers? They’re the most realistic, animated show currently airing. Their kids are actually interesting, the restaurant is actually struggling and the most extravagant thing they’ve done was create a movie night in a theater, but they had help with that too. And honestly, I could gust about how much I love Louise, but I’m going to save that for another time.
While Bob’s Burgers is the most realistic choice to replace The Cleveland Show, we all know that as much as Seth MacFarlane has a say in things, The Cleveland Show is mostly likely going to stay right where it’s at. I just want to know why. If I had to come up with the reason why we see The Cleveland Show over and over again, it’s mostly likely because we have to wait a certain amount of years before it gets taken off the air for good, but how much longer do we have to wait? It’s already on Netflix, people can watch on Netflix if they really want too. The Cleveland Show is dead air and I’ll be glad when it’s off the air for good. My name is KrisSimsters and Stay Golden.
