Guys With Kids, Jimmy Fallon

When Jimmy Fallon got the idea for his new NBC comedy Guys with Kids, he knew exactly what he wanted to call it — and it wasn't Guy with Kids.

"[My producing partner Amy Ozols and I] were just talking about all the guys we were seeing around New York City and Times Square with the Baby Bjorns and [babies] on the backs of their bikes," Fallon said via satellite at NBC's Television Critics Association fall TV previews Tuesday. "We were just like, 'These are like young, good-looking guys embracing the roles of dad.' We both said at the same time, 'DILFS'! When we pitched the idea for DILFS ... NBC said, 'Yeah, we probably can't call the show DILFS, so we'll have to change that.'"

Premise: Cosby played a doctor and dad in this all-time classic, which was TV's biggest hit in the 1980s and almost single-handedly revived the sitcom genre and NBC's ratings fortunes after ABC passed on the series. Mostly set in a Brooklyn brownstone, the series focused on obstetrician Cliff Huxtable and his wife, Claire, a lawyer, as they raised their kids with loving firmness. The series debuted in September 1984, ran for eight seasons and produced one spin-off, `A Different World.'
