Livin' in Sin with a Safety Pin, Cleveland Rocks


Remember that moment of shock your brain went through when you read that Fox was spinning off Family Guy's Cleveland into his own show? "Wait, what? Cleveland? The kind of boring guy? With a drawl?" That's right, in Fox's initiative to totally Seth MacFarlane-ize their lineup, Family Guy, the show they canceled and then revived, became the template for all their other programming. The Cleveland Show is just one example of that (along with the decline of The Simpsons), and the show has been enjoying a moderately successful run, now going into its third season.

To get you caught up for the third season, we're giving away two copies of the second season on DVD.

The second season of The Cleveland Show follows everyone’s favorite soft spoken neighbor, Cleveland Brown (Mike Henry), as he settles into married life with his high school sweetheart and their blended family in his hometown of Stoolbend, VA.  Cleveland’s second wife, Donna (Sanaa Lathan), is a strong-willed and tenacious woman who puts family first and often has to come to her husband’s rescue or protect him from dangerous situations.  Her two unruly kids – boy crazy teenage daughter Roberta (Reagan Gomez) and pint-sized 5-year-old Rallo (Henry) – can often be found conspiring with or against their insecure and naïve step-brother, Cleveland Jr. (Kevin Michael Richardson).
