That makes three for Twentieth, which last week sold Glee to NBC Universal's Oxygen and Modern Family to NBCU's USA in a whirlwind spate of deals. Cleveland went to the two Turner networks for approximately $500,000 an episode, according to Variety, which broke the story this evening.
Oxygen acquired Glee for $500,000 an episode, while USA paid $1.4 million per episode to air Modern Family. That's just under what TBS paid for Warner Bros.' record-breaking Big Bang Theory.
Family Guy spin-off Cleveland, which just completed its first season on Fox, already has been renewed through season three. The show is created and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Henry and Rich Appel.
