Countdown to Father's Day: Top TV Dads

Friday, June 18th, 2010

dad-countdown09
As we countdown to Father’s Day (06/20) – here’s our continuing look at some of TV’s favorite fathers: From the 1950s cardigan-wearing, “Father Knows Best” types to the 21st century guys juggling dysfunctional families and questionable careers.

TV’s Top Dads (in chronological order)

Homer Simpson (1990′s/2000′s)
As a less-than-perfect dad, Homer Simpson has cornered the market on underachieving. As The Simpsons’s (1989-present) animated patriarch, Homer personifies bumbling ineptitude in everything he does – from his botched attempts at raising his three kids to his rather ironic job as safety inspector at the local nuclear plant. The longest run show on TV, with characters that have never aged, The Simpsons offers America a satirical, politically incorrect family and one of the most enduring iconic cultural references.

Check back each day for another TV dad (or you can cheat and check out all our TV dads here).
