FOX'S 2008-2009 LINEUP

Fox on Thursday made its 2008-2009 presentation, including the return of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and its animated series, as well as introducing a Family Guy spin-off.

The Cleveland Show is the working title for the Family Guy spin-off, featuring Cleveland Brown, as voiced by Mike Henry.

Here's how Fox describes the show:

"Many years ago, Cleveland Brown was a high school student madly in love with a beautiful girl named Donna. Much to his dismay, his love went unrequited, and Donna wound up marrying another man. Cleveland once told Donna he would always love her, and if this man ever done her wrong, hešd be there when she called.

"Well, this man done her wrong.

"Donnašs husband skipped town with another woman, leaving Donna with a daughter and a baby. Now shešs come to Cleveland and offered him another chance at love. Unattached after the Loretta-Quagmire debacle and true to his word, Cleveland joyously accepts and he and Cleveland Jr. move to Stoolbend, VA, to join their new family.

"Once in Stoolbend, Cleveland has a few surprises in store for him, including a flirtatious new stepdaughter, a 5-year-old stepson who loves the ladies, as well as a collection of neighbors that includes a loudmouth redneck couple, a British family seemingly stuck in the Victorian era and a family of bears living at the end of the block."

Returning shows and highlights for the upcoming season:

* Terminator: The Sarah Chronicles returns for a second seeason. The intensity of the Connor family's situation is heightened as Sarah attempts to locate The Turk and John emerges into the leader he's expected to be.
