    So…basically it’s a reverse-$h!* My Dad Says x 2?

  3. stevie says:

    is there ANYTHING on other than sitcoms this fall????

  4. BOOYA says:

    Plot sounds lame, but Seth MacFarlane can make a carton of milk funny. So I’d definitely check this out.

  5. LOLOLOL says:

    They should make the two guys Seinfeld and George Costanza and their dads.

    It almost sounds like an updated version of “Frasier”. Just the Seth McFarlane name will have me tuning in! And, very sorry to seem ignorant on this, but does “live action sitcom” simply mean it’s not animated, and does it also mean that it will be recorded in front of an audience?

  7. TJ says:

    This should be pretty good. Can’t wait

  8. eddie says:

    he created the winner didnt he? and that didnt do very well….

  9. Mike says:

    A Mcfarlane sitcom, I would be excited if it didn’t sound so generic.

  10. dil says:

    Fox must have a minimum of. 3 Seth MacFarlane shows. Because they just cancelled thCleveland dshowah ow so now he already has another show. Plus it doesn’t have to ho through the process. I’ll loved. Family Guy. And Ted so can’t wait.

  11. Luke says:

    Seth Macfarlane, outside of Ted and the occasional American Dad, hasn’t been funny since 2007

    • Pierce says:

      You gotta be Sick?! what TV Shows have you been watching? True they arent as funny and more adult comedy, but to say that he’s flat out “Not Funny”?! Let me guess you like Jersey Shore, Teen Moms and other BS reality Shows, OR…. Dare I say That old catastrophe of Darma and Greg! LMAO!

    I feel as if Jerry Stiller should be in this… I miss Arthur Spooner
