You can always depend on TV dads to make you laugh, cry, scream, or basically, just feel. So, with Father’s Day quickly approaching, we’ve put together a superlative listing for some of the most famous TV dads.
Father’s Day is this weekend and regardless of what you have planned, you know that you can tune into your favorite TV shows — current and old — to watch the best and worst dads on TV. From Dan Scott’s horrific parenting to Danny Tanner’s cleanliness, we’ve handed out some awards to all those dads. Click through our gallery to see each one!
Most likely to hit on his son’s girlfriend: Dan Scott
Let’s be honest — you hated Dan (played by Paul Johansson) from the premiere of One Tree Hill. He hit on Peyton when Nathan was dating her, constantly made remarks to both Brooke and Haley and killed the man who stepped in for his son when he was absent. Yikes.
Most likely to do your laundry until you’re 40: Danny Tanner
If there’s ever a mess, any kid of Danny Tanner’s need not worry: he’s on it. While Bob Saget may have a dirty mouth in real life, the TV dad (and now granddad!) definitely doesn’t have anything dirty in his life.
Most likely to burn the house down: Tim Taylor
I always found it ironic that Tim Taylor (played by Tim Allen) was the star of Home Improvement, when all he seemed to do was ruin things. Regardless, he was still quite the stand up guy.
Most likely to annoy his kid’s friends when they sleep over: Ross Geller
As a Friends enthusiast, I can confirm that Ross (the amazing is all around David Schwimmer) the worst. But as a dad, he’s definitely the one who would check in too many times when his kids’ have friends over and complain about the noise. Re: below.
