Fox renews 'The Cleveland Show'

Network orders third season of animated freshman comedy

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."

"Cleveland" 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.

Deal comes on the heels of Fox renewing 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."
