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?

    When are these stations going to stop canceling shows that are actually good and replacing them with crap or reality tv shows? This show was hilarious and I am so sick of this! Enough with the reality shows already and give us back shows that make us actually watch your stations!!!

    I loved dads, it was an amazing show I think it deserved a second season…it kept me laughing and looking forward to every episode.

    Dang! When I saw the previews for this I thought it looked great, but being that I’m not a big tv watcher, I forgot about it for a while. As soon as I remembered, I watched season one online. I personally loved it and really wish it wouldn’t have been cancelled. :(
