“FOX hasn’t officially canceled “The Cleveland Show,” but it has not yet ordered additional episodes, a person familiar with the situation told TheWrap.
The network already has renewed “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy,” “American Dad,” As it now stands, new episodes of “Cleveland” only will run through May.”
Well that sucks…Make you wonder -_-

CBS (CBS +3.27%) is pinning high hopes on a new lineup of shows out this fall, but “I Love Lucy” is still one of the network’s stalwarts.
The company’s CEO, Leslie Moonves, said Thursday that “I love Lucy” still brings the company about $20 million a year in revenue. Cable and local channels broadcast runs of the show.
Is “I Love Lucy” seeing a resurgence more than 60 years after it debuted? This year, the sitcom was voted the best television show of all time in a survey by ABC News and People magazine, beating out “Seinfeld” and “Cheers.”
“I Love Lucy” had a relatively short life, running from 1951 to 1957, but it topped the ratings charts in most of those years. It morphed into a comedy starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
Moonves expects CBS to hold its lead as the most popular network. It will have the next Super Bowl, and it is expected to lead in the 18-to-49 demographic that is so important to advertisers, The Los Angeles Times reports.
I Love Lucy is one of the best shows ever! We Love You Lucille Ball♥
Clint Eastwood popped in on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday to explain his headline-grabbing speech at the RNC, and to accuse the Republicans of “spending like drunken sailors.”
Discussing his libertarian beliefs — socially liberal, fiscally conservative — with DeGeneres, Eastwood offered, “Libertarian values: That’s where Republicans used to be when they were saving money and everything.”
Shortly later in the interview, Eastwood reasserted his contention, this time including the Democrats in the mix of money-wasters.
In the last few years, both sides have just spent like drunken sailors,” Eastwood told DeGeneres.
As for his speech at the RNC — which raised eyebrows on a bipartisan level when Eastwood harangued at length an empty chair as if Obama was seated in it — the 82-year-old actor/director cracked, “”It was an interesting reaction, actually; the Democrats who were watching thought I was going senile, and the Republicans knew I was.”
Eastwood added, “But I was actually just trying to enjoy myself.”
Gotta love his smile…..♥
Former football star Michael Strahan joined “Live! With Kelly” as the permanent co-host on Monday, fulfilling a joking prophecy he made to Regis Philbin more than four years ago.
Former New York Giant jogged onto the morning show set and picked up co-host Kelly Ripa in a bear hug, lifting her off her feet. He replaces Philbin, who left last November. Strahan was the survivor in a series of on-air tryouts of potential co-hosts since Philbin left, and his hiring has been an open secret for the past two weeks.
Strahan appeared relaxed and amiable on his first day and drew “ahhhs” from women in the studio audience when he presented Ripa with a dozen red roses.
“It’s so nice to have a co-host literally sweep you off your feet,” Ripa said, “and I know that he can bench press me if he wanted to.”
Ripa played a clip of Strahan’s first appearance on the show in 2008, shortly after the Giants had won the Super Bowl. Philbin asked Strahan what he would want to do after retiring from football, and Strahan said that Philbin’s job looked pretty good.
“I was joking,” Strahan said on Tuesday, “and I’m glad the joke came true.”
Philbin was the original “Live!” host for more than 28 years, with Ripa joining him in 2001. Strahan said Philbin set the benchmark. “I am in awe of him,” he said.
Strahan is one of several new faces in daytime television this fall. Steve Harvey begins a new talk show on Tuesday. Katie Couric, Ricki Lake and Jeff Probst also have new shows starting in the next couple of weeks.
MTV has moved up the start of its annual Video Music Awards so its fans won’t have to choose between pop stars and President Barack Obama.
The show is airing Thursday, the night Obama accepts the Democratic nomination for another term as president. But MTV says it’s running the show an hour earlier than it usually does to not conflict with Obama’s speech.
The show will run from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern time. The president is scheduled to speak after 10 p.m.
MTV is ending the fist-pumping ratings hit and cultural phenomenon “Jersey Shore” after this season, the network says.
The decision comes amid skyrocketing salaries for the cast of former unknowns, which has made MTV’s most successful series increasingly expensive to produce. MTV said “Jersey Shore” will end after its sixth season, which premieres Oct. 4.
The network will commemorate the end of the show with farewell programming beginning next Thursday, with a one-hour retrospective called “Gym, Tan, Look Back” that will air before MTV’s Video Music Awards.
Good-Bye Jersey Shore♥
