shit my dad says past TV show

TV show description:
This sitcom is based on the popular Twitter feed by Justin Halpern and revolves around a father who thinks nothing of expressing his wildly politically-incorrect opinions at the drop of a hat.

Henry Goodson (Jonathan Sadowski) is a young struggling writer-turned-unpaid blogger. His older brother is Vince (Will Sasso), the meek half of a husband/wife real estate team. There’s no question that his aggressive wife Bonnie (Nicole Sullivan) truly wears the pants in the family.

Henry and Vince’s father is Ed Goodson (William Shatner), a forthright and opinionated man who will always tell you exactly what he thinks, especially if you didn’t ask.

When Henry finds that he can no longer afford to pay rent, Ed temporarily softens and invites his son to move in with him. Having no other choice, Henry agrees but knows that he won’t be able to escape his father’s verbal assaults.

Series Finale:     
Episode 18 — Who’s Your Daddy
Henry meets a beautiful girl named Laura on the internet and senses a strange connection to her. Things get weird when she seems to know a little too much about Ed. Worried that she might be his long-lost daughter, Ed attempts to discover the truth, even though he’s not ready for it.

Vince and Bonnie, sad that their attempts at artificial insemination (in the previous episode) didn’t seem to work, throw themselves into their work and end up as real estate agents on The Real Housewives of San Diego. Camille (Camille Donatacci Grammer), a divorcee and reality series star, goes house hunting with them. Their shoot is disrupted when Bonnie throws up on camera. She’s pregnant.

After doing a secret DNA test, it turns out that Laura is not Ed’s child. She comes to the house and confesses that she’s in love with his son — but it’s not Henry or Vince. It turns out Ed has another son that he’s never met who had been scared to meet him. Laura opens the front door to reveal him. We can’t see who he is but hear a young voice say “Hi, dad.” The family all stare out the door and Ed exclaims, “Holy Bleep!”
First aired: March 15, 2011.

    There is no way this show could have had “low ratings”. I’ve seen worst trust me bring the show back

    Bring it back, let’s start a petition to renew this series, it was a fun show. Star Trek had lousy reviews too remember? Until the shows producers found out about its following it was due to be axed.

    I think all you people who didn’t enjoy the show should reevaluate your lifestyles. Also not wanting to watch a show because of its completely reasonable title “$#*!My Dad Says” is ridiculous and you should leave the Narnia world you live in and actually get involved with society… Just saying. $#*! My Dad Says is very* witty and filled with “quick on the feet” comments and slapstick comedy. William Shatner is brilliant, the entire cast is brilliant!! There are a lots of us who are really keen to see a season two!

    Another great show that execs said that had low ratings! Who is making these decisions? Have you seen recent tv programming? It is horrible! Let’s start a petition! Bring back good tv. By the way this is my blog address.

    How can CBS cancel this show????
    It was a funny one… It won the People Choice!!!… It had good ratings!!!… I LIKED IT!!!

    And besides, what´s up with the cliffhanger on the 18th episode??? Who was Ed son???
    It is totally unfair to leave the viewers hanging like that!!!

    The show deserved a renewal, but all the rantings and screaming aren´t going to change the fact that is gone due to some “executive” decisions… Shame CBS shame!!!!

      You actually can figure out the cliff hanger without looking online for the answer. There is a book you can read which is actually what this show is based off of.

        Ah! AH! oh nooooo … So much for Web sites that dangle the carrot before the rabbit. Back to CNN for evening entertainment … Thanks for clarifying. :(

    I love the show, it is very funny. But why did they have to give that one couple is oldest son and wife a kid. They should of used that time to get a good message out that when you are 40 something and live with your folks and barely have 2 nickles to rub together that the last thing in life you want to do is have kids. They did miss the boat there.

    I keep hearing that S#*! My Dad Says is not cancelled, but I haven’t seen it on the air in quite a while. Is it just in temporary hiatus? Maybe they are creating new episodes, but then why not do what every other series does and run reruns until the new season starts? This show is one of the few shows my family enjoys watching together. It’s very funny and always has an underlying message at the end of the show. Please bring this show back.
