Fox renews ‘The Cleveland Show’

Los Angeles: Fox is once again picking up a freshman comedy for a third season.

The broadcaster has given a third round to Seth MacFarlane`s animated comedy ‘The Cleveland Show.’ The ‘Family Guy’ spinoff was granted a second season early in its run.

Fox`s animated shows have such a long lead time that additional seasons are frequently picked up early. The deal follows the renewal of fellow newbie ‘Glee’ for a third season, though as a live-action series that move was more unusual.

The upcoming ‘Cleveland’ second season will feature guest voices Justin Timberlake, T-Pain, Tony Hawk, Snoop Dogg and the cast of ‘Glee.’
