You heard it here, on UnderCurrent, first! Miss Media’s pick for the #1 new comedy in the fall is $#!* My Dad Says, airing Thursdays this fall at 8:30 pm EST on CBS.
The series is based on a popular Twitter handle by the same name. The feed currently has 4,136,799 followers and is run by 29-year old Justin, who lives with his 74-year old father and records the random things his dad says on a daily basis. In addition to the Twitter feed and TV show, Justin maintains a blog and has written a book based on his dad’s little ditties. Before you check out any of the links, please make sure you are over the age of 18 or have a parent or legal guardian’s permission.
The series stars William Shatner as Ed, a 72-year old divorcee whose slacker son, Henry, has moved back in with him. From the clip that is available on CBS.com, the show looks to be full of classic one liners. The cast is likable, it appears to be well written and it seems that everyone can relate to the having that one crazy relative. Local affiliates are predicting great success for the show, based on ratings projections and the buzz the show is already receiving; I agree.
Look for my September post on UnderCurrent, where I’ll review this show, along with other fall series premieres. What do you think, will $#!* be the next big hit?
