Dads: Seth Green TV Show Cancelled by FOX

Dads TV show on FOX canceledTo no surprise, FOX has cancelled Dads, their low-rated freshman sitcom. The comedy ran for 18 episodes, from September 2013 until February 2014.

Dads revolves around two successful video game developers (Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi) whose lives are turned upside down when their fathers (Martin Mull and Peter Riegeret) move in. The rest of the cast includes Brenda Song, Tonita Castro, and Vanessa Lachey.

Despite largely negative reviews, Dads started out strong in the ratings with a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.76 million total viewers. Those positive numbers didn’t last however and the ratings dropped more than 30% in week two — and they kept falling.

There won’t be a second season but at least all of the episodes were broadcast. The same can’t be said for Enlisted, another FOX comedy that has also been cancelled.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Dads has been dropped? Do you think it should have been given a second season?

    Dads was a great show.. I was so bummed when I found out it was cancelled.. These people who base quality on ratings need to take into consideration that good shows like this seem to go little to no advertising… In the first year.. Imo dads was gonna be the next big bang theory.. If only it was givin a real chance

    I think “Dads” was a hilarious show and it should be played again. It shouldn’t have been canceled in the first place. Its a great show, and I would very much appreciate if it was played again.
