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 MacFarlane, Wellesley 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.

"I would not anticipate it goes on," Reilly said. "Never say never, but there's two very clear arcs to get to there and conclude. If we discover a new crop of kids and there's some breakout, who knows? But right now, it's being treated as [ending after] two seasons."

The search for the next Oscars host starts ... now!
Seth MacFarlane, who hosted this year's ceremony, tweeted on Monday that he will not be returning for a second shot next year.
Another May weekend, another deluge of season finales — though none are likely to blow the mind with as much daring, panache and imaginative fervor as BBC America's gloriously inventive Doctor Who (Saturday, 8/7c), which signs off until next time-travel with one of its trippiest yet emotionally powerful episodes to date. Steven Moffat's typically clever script, brimming with colorful incident and characters grandly heroic or villainous, finds a nifty way to salute the 50-year history of Doctors as we learn more about the impossibly irrepressible companion Clara (the smashing Jenna-Louise Coleman), first seen in a cosmic haze — "I don't know where I am ... Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once" — with only one constant to guide her: "I have to save the Doctor." That same impulse prompts lizard lady Vastra, her wife Jenny and the stalwart Strax to summon Clara to a psychic conference call, interrupted by the menacing "Whisper Men" (reminiscent of the ghoulish Gentlemen from Buffy's classic "Hush" episode).

Fox has pulled a March episode of Family Guy after a mash-up of clips made the series look like it was portraying a bombing at the Boston Marathon.
In the clip, which has nearly 140,000 views on YouTube, a scene from the March 17 episode, "Turban Cowboy," depicts Peter Griffin accidentally blowing up a bridge while using a terrorist's cell phone. However, the clip places that scene directly after an unrelated one, in which Bob Costas asks Peter Griffin how he won the Boston Marathon.
