Hello, 'Cleveland'

The wait is almost over for "The Cleveland Show."

Long lead times are standard for most primetime animation shows. But really, doesn't it seem like it's been about five years since Fox announced it was doing a spinoff of "Family Guy"?

Actually, the Hollywood Reporter first broke the news about "Cleveland" back in February 2008. Last fall, TVWeek reported that the show was being pushed from its planned spring debut to a fall 2009 launch, and that the network had ordered a full season. And earlier this month came word that Fox had ordered 13 more episodes.

Despite all this coverage, however, viewers have yet to see a single episode of "Cleveland." That should change this fall, however.

To tide you over, Fox has released a new trailer for "The Cleveland Show." This one features Cleveland saying goodbye to the Griffins.

Two words: Chocolate people.
