The 2013 Fall TV Preview: The New Shows on FOX
Created By Alec Sulkin & Wellesley Wild
Premiere Date: Tuesday, September 17at 8PM
Premise: (from FOX's press release, May 2013) Honor thy father. Way easier said than done. Especially when your dad's broke, living in your house and ruining your life.
Thoughts: Hollywood writers need to sort out their complicated feelings about their parents. Every sitcom mines comedy from a dysfunctional parent-child relationship. Dads is yet another series about grown children who hate their fathers (it's usually 50/50 for whom the child hates). The fathers get a poor portrayal. They're rude, irritating, inappropriate, and eager to ruin their respective son's happiness. Seth Green's one of the leads. Dads is executive produced by Seth MacFarlane. FOX wants to make more money with Seth. I don't doubt they will make more money.
