Dads (Fox) - Series Thread
 
I'm assuming no one cares about "Dads"?

I care about Dads in the fact that I want to see how low the ratings go tonight, not only is it terrible, but it's facing off against the inexplicably hyped up Agents of SHIELD.

It seems nobody is really watching it, but people still want to talk about how bad it is. So... here is the thread.

I started a thread!

This show is gone by November. They need to drop the laugh track.

Yea...I moved the 2 comments from the B99 thread to this. I thought they would just go below what I started. I don't know if I can edit that.

Groucho. do you know how to do that?

It sorts comments by time stamp, so the only way to do it is to delete the top comments.

That's what I figured. Thanks. If this thread actually gets some action I will edit it.

I watched it for 10 minutes last week and it was awful.

watched about 10 minutes of the pilot and think it might be the most forced comedy I have ever seen. I really cannot believe Giovanni Ribisi is involved with this shit.

Like everyone else. I only watched for 10 minutes as well.

The ratings from last week:


The new sitcom starring Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi pulled in 5.6 million viewers and a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It was up against a rerun of "NCIS" on CBS (10.4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating), NBC's "Million Second Quiz" (5.2 million viewers and a 1.1 rating), ABC's broadcast of "Iron Man 2" (3.8 million viewers and a 1.1 rating) and "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" on The CW (2.4 million viewers and a 0.8 rating).

Fox promoted "Dads" by highlighting bad reviews.

Horrible show!

It almost certainly has already been canceled in secret. The buzz is so bad that I strongly doubt its entire order gets broadcast.

It was routinely put on the 'bottom' list of shows to avoid, if people here actually enjoy it might watch when they go on demand.

So you're the only one watching this? For me, I just don't see the point of talking about a bad show like this that's gotten panned everywhere. Could you not tell by the previews this was going to be a really bad sitcom?

I mean what is the point of a thread with 20-30 comments saying this show sucks, this show sucks balls, I have no interest in watching this etc. etc. Seems like a waste of energy.

I watched the pilot because I like Seth Green and one of the old guys.

It wasn't funny.

I was hoping to find the 1 person who actually made it all the way through. Also, people were discussing it in other threads. I agree it wasn't neccesarily needed. But better to have it's own thread than to have it take up space in another.

I think something like this is kind of funny when FOX is actually using the bad reviews to market it, and it got pretty much the same ratings as New Girl.

Only good thing about the pilot was Brenda Song in the school girl outfit.

Yup. Something about seeing former Disney teen starlets gettin' all tarted up just piques my interest.

I am stunned it took until the 19th post for this observation to be made.

This show is terrible, and I'm guessing they won't use that same gimmick each week...

I checked out the pilot because of the cast but this is one horrible show. I'm surprised the actors let themselves get attached to it.

i watched the pilot & thought it wasnt so bad. Cant see how everyone can dismiss a show after ONE episode.

Agreed, but I'm not taking any chances. The DVR is set.

Also turned it off after 10 minutes. Terrible show. I'd like to believe that the laugh track was overdone on purpose but I don't think they're that clever.
