By the end of its run, The Cleveland Show wasn’t THAT terrible of a show. There, I said it. It wasn’t as supremely excellent as American Dad!, but it didn’t cheaply swing for the offensive fences like Family Guy; it was more than happy to settle for doubles — I don’t know where this baseball metaphor came from, just go with it— and occasionally made contact, especially in scenes with Junior. So of course, just as soon as it was starting to find its groove, it was cancelled. And American Dad! is moving to the cheaper animation of TBS. Sigh. Double sigh for the premise of the new MacFarlane animated show that’s set to premiere during the 2014-2015 TV season.
Fox has given a 13-episode order to the new animated comedy Bordertown from Family Guy‘s Seth MacFarlane and Mark Hentemann to debut during the 2014-2015 TV season.
The show, created by Hentemann, takes place in a fictitious desert town in Texas near the border with Mexico. The show revolves around Bud Buckwald, a married father of three and a Border Patrol agent not adjusting well to the cultural changes around him, and his next-door neighbor Ernesto Gonzales, a Mexican immigrant and father of four. Bordertown take a satirical look at America’s cultural shifts through the evolving relationships between the two families. (Via)
Well, at least we’ve got Bob’s Burgers and distant memories of The Simpsons to keep us warm at night.
