The Worst Jokes from the Dads Premiere: Did You Find the Show Offensive?

Brenda Song

Fox's Dads has been hailed as the most offensive new show of the fall, both by criticsand by the network itself (yay for spin marketing!). But while offensive humor certainly has its merits, the "humor" portion is a necessary component for it to do so. Dads is offensive without being funny — and that's the show's biggest problem.

In the premiere episode alone, Dads managed to disparage Asians, women, gays and Muslims, among others (don't worry, Jews get their turn in Episode 2). But the one-liners land with a clunk rather than a zing. In case you didn't watch the premiere, here's a rundown of the most eyebrow-raising jokes. Did it live up to the hype? You be the judge!

Dads Producers on Backlash to the "Offensive" Pilot: "We're Used to It"

Seth Green, Peter Riegert

If there's one new fall show that everyone seems to have an opinion about, it's Dads, the new Fox comedy from the production team behind Family Guy. Based on the pilot episode alone, the show has been derided as "racist," "offensive" and "morally wrong" by critics. But Fox is using the backlash as a selling point — using such comments in promos for the show to try to foster tension between fans and (in the network's telling) and out-of-touch critics. And the show's producers — Seth MacFarlaneWellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin of Family Guy, along with former Simpsons showrunner Mike Scully — don't seem to mind the negative attention either.

"We're used to it. That's what we do," Wild tells TVGuide.com.
