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.

How about her preemptive strike against the inevitable invasive line of questioning, capped with, "If these past few answers make you blush, Mr. Fisk, I apologize." I was practically cheering her on from my sofa.Katie, though — poor, poor Katie — was unwittingly being set up for a fall. She was fed bogus information from Greg (I saw that coming) and her worthless testimony was in turn used by Patty to give the defense a false sense of security. Risk... read more
