$#*! My Dad Says: Petition and Ways to Help Save the CBS TV Show

Bleep my Dad SaysOn $#*! My Dad Says, William Shatner’s character says a lot of outrageous things about the people in his family and the world around him. One can only imagine what he would say if he knew that his show was in real danger of getting cancelled.

What can you do? Remember, the ideal scenario for CBS is for many millions of people to watch the show on their television sets, while it’s being broadcast. Unfortunately, ratings are put together based on a sampling of viewers. If you’re a “Nielsen household,” your viewing is being counted. If not, well, it’s not.

However, if you like $#*! My Dad Says and want to see it continue, there are a few things you can do to help.

  1. If you’re a Nielsen family, watch the show whenever it’s on. If not, watch it on CBS.com or purchase episodes online so your viewing will be counted directly. Encourage others to watch the show. You might know a Nielsen family and not be aware of it.
  1. Talk about the show with others; at school, at work, online, or wherever. Creating a buzz about a show that you’re invested in gets other people interested and might help bring former viewers back.
  1. Sign the petition below and encourage others to do the same.
  1. Write to the network. Be respectful. Everyone responds better to courtesy. Tell them how much you enjoy the show, that you’ve signed the petition, and that you want to see it continue. You can use this form or, even better, write via “snail-mail” immediately to: Ms. Nina Tassler, CBS, 7800 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90039, RE: $#*! My Dad Says
  1. Take note of the products that are advertised during the show. Write the advertisers and tell them that you appreciate their sponsoring the show and that you buy their products (if you do).

To CBS, KoMut Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television:

We, the undersigned, like watching $#*! My Dad Says on the CBS network. The cast is hilarious and the writing is top notch. It keeps us laughing and seems to get better every week.

Please find a way to keep $#*! My Dad Says on the air. We are devoted viewers who will continue to watch the program, encourage others to do the same, and will support the series’ advertisers as well. Please keep it going, either on CBS or, if necessary, on another channel.

Thank you for your consideration.

    BRING IT BACK!!! BRING IT BACK!!!! BRING IT BACK the way it was!! (sung to the tune of 'Put 'em back' from Lil Abner) The irreverence was wonderful and the big guy was hilarious! Wm Shatner is better as a comedian than as a captain. Bring it on back!
  • DianneCountry: USA2013-05-21 00:06:00
    I was desperately disappointed the show was cancelled! I so enjoyed the irreverence, the comedy, the subtleties, the great comedy of the big guy, and Wm Shatner is BETTER

    This was a really very funny and interesting show, with up to date situations and absolutley relatable. My hat goes off to the casting and actors and writers (love William Shatner as well. Was one of my favorite shows which my friends came over to watch because I was the only one in the neighborhood to have it (was in running competion with The Big Bang Theory which I love). Not to be rude but who ever cancelled this show and the TV show Firefly is an idiot (sorry).

    We were disappointed too when this show was cancelled unfairly for no reason. Therefore that is why we are signing your petition for possible renewal! Angela & Meagan Jensen

    My wife and I loved this show and were upset to see it end so abruptly. From the conversations we had amongst our friends at work, it seemed like a sure fire hit. Please bring $#*! My Dad Says back!

    With so many not entertaining shows on I cannot beleive that they would take this one off the air. There are far too many reality shows on now and when you would like to entertained that is all you see. I can get reality every day of the week at my work and from my own family. To escape in the world of laughter and comedy is a treat. This show was just getting into its own and they players were all so good and did not need to have second season to start to click....What was going through someones mind....Please bring it back.

    Put Bleep My Dad Says and Mad Love back on they are a hundred times better than what is going to be churned out this year. Way to give these shows a chance. Hook people in then cancel them.
  • Dave McDowellCountry: Canada2011-09-12 08:49:43
    This was a good show. I can't stand reality t.v., but thats all they ever keep on the air. Every single show thats actually worth watching gets cancelled, Keep the real shows like this on the air and CANCELL THE REALITY T.V. CRAP!!!!!!
  • Vern GallCountry: Canada2011-09-11 07:02:04
    Please bring back this show. It was awesome. change the name to Stuff my dad says so my PVR can actually pull it in. I think I manually had to push record 15 or 16 times last season because we didn't want to miss our favourite show. Cheers and God Bless, Vern, Karen, Haley, and Cameron

    Everytime I think a network has finally figured out what people want to see, they mess with the schedule so nobody can find the show, then claim nobody is watching. This show never had a dud, but it was a bit hard to figure out when I might be lucky enough to catch it actually on. You need to find a new way to take your ratings if the "Neilson Families" are telling you that WE the real people out there are not watching it. I can't believe that you would not be able to organize a volunteer based (people sign up for it) program where anyone can opt to have you know what they are watching and how they watch it. (live, DVR, Tivo, Internet broadcast, etc) Honestly, look at Family Guy on Fox, canceled for like 6 years, and now making more money than ever. You have it in your power to give us what we really want to see, and be the first to break the "reality show addiction" most netoworks are trying to force down our thoats. The world has enough negatives in it, shows like Sh*t My Dad Says are just one way people can escape and enjoy life each week.

  • CrystalCountry: usa2011-08-01 15:07:39
    Ok, this show is just hilarious! Shatner, Sasso and Sullivan are fantastic and I even liked newbie Devlin(I've never seen him in anything else so he is new to me) and the chemistry between this cast is fantastic! Ignore the complainers that have the sticks up their...well, you know, and let us people with a good sense of humor enjoy some good, hilarious television!
