TV Dads: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

fathers day 2011
Cliff Huxtable is still one of our favorite tv dads!

Father’s Day is just around the corner: Sunday, June 19, for those of you who forgot. Don’t worry, you still have time to find a gift for the dads in your life.

In the spirit of Father’s Day, let’s take a look at tv dads! TiVo did a survey on who you think are the stand-out dads on tv and which dads you think might not deserve even a card for Father’s Day. See if you agree:

The Good
Jim Halpert from “The Office” and Cam Tucker from “Modern Day Family” were the favorites when it comes to today’s tv shows.

For favorite Classic tv dad, Cliff Huxtable from “The Cosby Show” was the favorite.

Cliff was tied with Tim Taylor from “Home Improvement” as most like the voters’ own dads.

The Bad
Ray Barone from “Eveyone Loves Raymond” was voted the Goofiest Dad, beating out both Peter Griffin from “Family Guy” and Homer Simpson from “The Simpsons.” You would think Ray would get some points for not being a cartoon.

The Ugly
When it comes to reality tv dad, it was Jon Gosselin from “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” who had voters cringing the most.  Scott Disick from “Keeping up with the Kardashians” was a close second. Thumbs down to both of these dads- it’s not just a character they play, but real life!

Who is your favorite tv dad? And which tv dad are you glad isn’t anything like your dad?
