Bleep my Dad Says -- New Series with William Shatner -- Debuts 09/23/10

Synopsis for Pilot:

Spoiler:
The premiere of the sitcom based on Justin Halpern's popular Twitter feed about the outrageous observations of his politically incorrect father. In the opener, the grumpy dad (William Shatner) invites his son (Jonathan Sadowski) to move back home after the young man loses his job as a writer for a men's magazine.


I will record this for shits and giggles and because I'm a fan of Bill Shatner, but I'm not optimistic this will be good.

There is way too many shows on Thursday's. This will get relegated to 1 thread for the season.

I'm a fan of the book and I like Shatner... But the commercials make this look terrible. I'll still give it a shot.

I'll be watching, but Shat doesn't seem like a good fit here. They needed someone like Stacey Keach who rocked this kind of role in Titus.

I'll watch the pilot, but expect it'll be awful.

I don't know how Shat will be in the role but you're spot on with this point.

I'm annoyed that they're calling the show "Bleep my Dad Says". I know the Twitter account in Shit my Dad Says but the titles just sounds retarded. Why couldn't they go with "Things my Dad Says" instead?

Why not Shat My Dad Says?

I saw the CBS preview show and this looked awful. Even Shatner couldn't save the terrible cliched writing.

Like everyone else, loved the book, but this just looks abysmal.

I'll be checking it out, but I don't expect it to be any good. I have a 30-minute block in between Community and The Office (I hate 30 Rock) and have time to check it out.

Shatner is funny as hell but the rest of the cast just drags it down. The part where he tells them that he accepts their offer to move in with them was just horrible.

It still amazes me that people watch Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory so I guess that shouldn't surprise me.

Did Nicole Sullivan get some work done? Her nose looks different and she looked a little "enhanced".

Based on this thread I'm not upset about missing this.

Watched this after BBT.

I'm sort of baffled as to how they think they're going to make a weekly series out of this. It's like a lame SNL sketch that doesn't end.

I've watched one episode--enough to see that it's just another awful, cliche-filled sitcom.

Par for the course for CBS.

I agree with you. I've watched two episodes of The Big Bang Theory because one of my friends recommended it to me, and it was simply dreadful.

you guys really need to watch more of it. I thought the same thing and didnt start watching it till the middle of the second season. It really is a great show.
