$#*! My Dad Says: CBS Sitcom Canceled; No Season Two

Bleep My Dad Says canceled season twoWell, the $#*! may have hit the fan. It’s being reported that William Shatner’s sitcom, $#*! My Dad Says, has been cancelled after one season on CBS.

$#*! My Dad Says revolves around a young struggling writer who’s out of money and must move in with his cranky and opinionated father. The TV show stars William Shatner, Jonathan Sadowski, Will Sasso, Nicole Sullivan, and Stephanie Lemelin.

Despite people’s doubts that a Twitter feed could inspire a sitcom, the TV series got off to a solid start in September with a 4.0 rating and 12.58 million viewers. The next two episodes fell 18% and 12% respectively but the series was still doing well.

The numbers went up and down a bit over the course of the season but the series still ended up averaging a 3.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.42 million viewers. Since the rest of CBS’ schedule is doing so well, that rating put the series squarely on the bubble. Had it been on NBC, it would have been safe.

Should $#*! My Dad Says have been cancelled?

The one problem that $#*! My Dad Says had was that it lost a significant amount of the lead-in from The Big Bang Theory. That sitcom averages a 4.0 in the demo so $#*! loses 25% of that prime audience. Despite that, $#*! was reportedly still in contention up until recently, though it was looking like co-star Jonathan Sadowski might have been dropped.

Ultimately, it seems that CBS execs believe that they can do better with another show in the timeslot. Rules of Engagement didn’t perform as well as $#*! but was renewed anyway. The fact that CBS co-owns Rules, which is close to having enough episodes for syndication, likely had a lot to do with that decision.

TV show supportCBS has cancelled $#*! My Dad Says as well as fellow newbie Mad Love. CBS introduced three new sitcoms this season and only one, Mike & Molly, is expected to survive.

All 18 episodes of $#*! My Dad Says have aired with the series finale having run on February 17th.

We don’t know what Ed Goodson would have to say about this but series co-creator Jonathan Sadowski tweeted, “I regret to inform you that S**T MY DAD SAYS has been cancelled… Thanks for the memories!”

What do you think? Should $#*! My Dad Says have been renewed for season two? Will you miss it?

Apparently cancellation hasn’t bought back anymore viewer to the Networks. More of Americans are hurt by the networks cancellation of show. We all know Series show are being watch more than ever. But not in the same old stander why networks that was setup before the new technology. They don’t understand most of the age group from that old rating system requirement. NOT Watching shows live nor at any certain given time. Putting most of the popular show on Monday to duke and fight out letting Networks old rating system have a ratings knock out. It is clever as those… Read more »

I can’t keeping put myself out there and watch any more new series until the “NETWORKS” Get Their Act Together. Series shows hardly has a chance of making with an antiquated ratings system. It is not a fair nor an accurate system. The Ratings started declining after new technology arrived (internet). Networks don’t have that live mass audience it once had. Networks haven’t realize it yet, but canceling all those show hasn’t bought in any more viewers. The old rating system is not working in today’s time with new technology. With the new technology it allows Television enthusiast to watch… Read more »

I have to say that, after reading the book this is based on (which is one of the funniest things I’ve ever read), I can’t watch this show without seeing how watered-down it was from the original premise. I watched all the episodes, but I can’t say I’ll miss it.

Typical, just when a show comes on people really can get into (regardless of their age) it gets canned in favor of some crap.

Shatner was great. Supporting cast was weak. Show should have been tweaked & given another year. But, hey…thats CBS.

With the exception of Tim Bagley, Shatner’s supporting cast was awful. I still found myself tuning in and enjoying the $#*! out of it. Hopefully another network picks it up and tweaks the cast a bit.

I thought the show was great. It did get off to a slow start, but got better & better. I agree about Mike & Molly. And if it wasn’t for Timmy, I wouldn’t watch Rules of Engagement. Big Bang & $#*! My Dad Said, made for a great hour.

I watched one episode of Mike and Molly, but watched all the episodes of Bleep my Dad Says and Mad Love. Don’t expect me to start watching Mike and Molly next season, CBS. You’ve made a bad choice.

I’ve never watched Mike and Molly and Rules of Engagement is just OK. Bleep My Dad Says was fun to watch and I really like the cast. CBS FINALLY got a few good shows. I hope they don’t screw it up.
