TV dad survey

I read an article discussing TV dads who were great. Some mentioned were Ozzie Nelson, Ward Cleaver, Charles Ingalls, Andy Tayor, Jim Walsh, & Phil Dunphy just to name a few from the list.

Who is your favorite TV dad?

The first one I thought of was Tom Bradford on Eight is Enough. I think because I was trying to find episodes to watch. I am not sure he is my favorite though.

No mention of Frank Constanza?

I'm huge 7th Heaven fan (lol...I know...guilty pleasure! ), so for me, the Rev. Eric Camden (although the actor got in major trouble).

Teen Mom is also another guilty pleasure, and I think Taylor McKinney (Maci's husband) and Cole DeBoer (Chelsea's husband) are wonderful dads.

I liked Jason Sievers from the Growing Pains, too.

Now, there a lot of other shows I liked, but that doesn't weren't necessary Father of the Year material!

Steven Keaton on Family Ties an Howard Cunningham on Happy Days are my favorite tv dads.

I donít think the dad from The Middle gets enough credit for being a good TV dad. Heís not perfect but heís always trying his best.

Andy Taylor would be my top pick. The others are wonderful, but he just always knew the right words to say.
