The Best And Worst Dads On TV Today [TOP 5]
It's Father's Day week and all this week we'd like to bring you stories about Dad's. Today we'll focus on modern day TV Dad's. Over the decades there are some great fathers and some really not-so-great dads on TV. NBC offers a look at five of the best and worst examples of fatherhood currently on the small screen.
5) Jim Powell Sr. (Mike Chiklis, “No Ordinary Family”)
A family full of superheroes needs a super Dad.
4) Mike Heck (Neil Flynn, “The Middle”)
It's amazing how he deals with his sarcastic teen son.
3) Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck, “Blue Bloods”)
This modern day TV Dad makes sure to lay down the law on life at his regular family dinners.
2) Adam Braverman (Peter Krause, “Parenthood”)
It's difficult being a good father to his kids with the challenges life has handed him.
1) Burt Hummel (Mike O’Malley, “Glee”)
He is the kind of father who should be guiding us all into adulthood.
5) Walter White (Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad”)
His character Walter has turned ruthless and at times cruel into terrible fathering. Partnering with a former student to sell drugs while dodging other drug kingpins, Walter White is one of the worst modern day TV Dad's on the air.
4) Hank Moody (David Duchovny, “Californication”)
David plays the role of a Dad who stays out all night; partying, drinking, taking drugs and sleeping around. Nice job Dad!
3) Peter Florrick (Chris Noth, “The Good Wife”)
Peter plays the role of a Dad caught hanging around with hookers and now divorce is looming. Nice work.
2) Don Draper (Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”)
Don's always been a fairly hands-off parent. Soon he'll get his hands on divorce papers.
1) Peter Griffin (voiced by Seth McFarlane, “Family Guy”)
Peter can be an okay Dad at times, but there's not a lot of evidence of his love for his wife and kids. In fact, he completely disrespects them most of the time, making him the worst modern day TV Dad.
