I ran into this poll ran by TiVo that asked "who is your favorite TV dad."
so i figured in tribuite to fathers day coming up I would post it and see what you think.

did they get it right? who are they forgetting? who shouldn't be on there?

and most importantly...who is your favorite TV dad?

personally I agree that bill cosby was the best but I also like frank costanza from seinfeld.

I also would point out that bernie mac is not a TV dad. he is technically their uncle on the show.

2.good call on george jefferson (but i don't know that i would vote for him over some others.

3.fred sanford? really? for real?

how about major john d. macGillis from 'major dad' or the two dads from 'my two dads'. you know the 'cool' one and the 'business' one.

Proving that I really belong in my teenage generation, I think Tim "The Toolman" Taylor or Homer Simpson are the best. :-D Hands-down, the best.

I like munsters a little more than the addams family but they were both great.

For sure Bill Cosby is my fave but a close second would have to be Ray from Everyone Love Raymond.

Dan Conner, James Evans**, George Jetson, Jason Seaver**, President Bartlett, Steven Keaton... so many good ones missed.

(* - TiVo users should be collectively flogged for omitting these!)

dan conner...damn I can't believe they didn't get that one!

steven keaton is a big one too but I wasn't a huge family ties fan.

although the very special episode' where alex gets all hopped up on drugs was great!

alex p keaton was like the early version of rush limbaugh.
