$#*! My Dad Says: Discussion Thread


Toups

Recommended Posts

$#*! MY DAD SAYS, based on the popular Twitter feed by Justin Halpern, stars Emmy Award winner William Shatner as Ed Goodson, a forthright and opinionated dad who relishes expressing his unsolicited and often wildly politically incorrect observations to anyone within earshot. Nobody is immune from Ed’s rants, including his sons, Henry, a struggling writer-turned-unpaid blogger; and Vince (Will Sasso), the meek half of his husband/wife real estate duo with domineering Kathleen (Nicole Sullivan). When Henry finds he can no longer afford to pay rent to his pretty roommate — and secret admirer — Sam (Stephanie Lemelin), Ed reveals a soft spot and invites Henry to move in with him. Henry agrees, knowing that the verbal assault will not abate and now there will be no escape. Describing their father/son relationship is tricky – but Ed will easily come up with a few choice words. Emmy Award winners David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television. Emmy Award winner James Burrows directed.

The title isn't that bad, what's he supposed to call it? Given the stuff the guy's dad says, it very fitting LOL

It's a stupid gimmicky title and I think the first instinct is to avoid a show with that title.

Plus, no one at the network wanted to call it what Shatner wanted to -- "The William Shatner Show, Starring William Shatner." ;-P

Wow, CBS apparently must have some hope for this show. They have moved Survivor to hype this on Thursday nights, right after Big Bang Theory. Apparently one of their most durable hits is on the way out for a s***-talking dad.

They moved Survivor so they could try a new comedy block cause the one on Wednesday didn't do so well. Survivor used to be on Wednesday's and even premiered on a Wednesday and it's doing about the same ratings as it did when it was on Thursdays.
