    This was a good start, I know a lot of people want to bash it right from the start, but I think this pilot was only SLIGHTLY better than the American Dad pilot, and that show is really good at this point. It's funny that people are saying it's a rip off of Family Guy, yea and so is American Dad, and Family Guy is a rip off of the Simpsons and All in the Family. Yea we get it, the bumbling idiotic father with at least one daughter and one son idea has been done to death. That aside, it was pretty funny, Rollo was funny and it still had that Family Guy zing without being too outrageous. Unlike his other counterparts (Stan, Peter, Homer), Cleveland is funny not because he's a bumbling idiot, but because he's a lovable naive do-gooder. My favorite parts:

    "Nutter Butters AND Oreos gone? DAYUM"
    "I fought off 6 Al Qaeda!" "It IS an elusive pencil"
    "I know ya'll aint leavin without making these beds"
    "Dats what I was sayin' before!"
    "That is a mighty fat ass!"
