The Cleveland Show (Sunday, 8:30/7:30c, Fox)
An ill wind is blowing through Fox's "Animation Domination" lineup — well, the Seth MacFarlane variety, anyway.

And on American Dad, the hurricane wreaks havoc on the Smiths, who foolishly decide to ride it out at home. As for Springfield... The Simpsons go to the Jersey Shore, so apparently they didn't get the memo.

"Not since my days on Malcolm in the Middle have I seen a show that can make you laugh out loud and at the same time resonate on some deeper level [like Modern Family does]," Cranston tells TVGuide.com. "Extremely difficult to do because if the audience smells a 'message' in an episode — game over, show loses. This program has it all... wonderful writing, fantastic actors. Bravo."
