Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott
When it comes to being a good dad, Dean McDermott says Cliff Huxtable, from the '80s sitcom The Cosby Show, is his role model.
As host of the upcoming TV Guide Network special Modern TV Dads: Father Doesn't Know Best (Sun, 8/7c), McDermott tells TVGuide.com that while he'd love to emulate 24's Jack Bauer for the "cool, tough guy factor," he relates more to Dr. Huxtable because he "loves to goof around, to keep things light," but also isn't afraid of a little discipline.

A fun little survey released by Lifetime Products, Inc. no, not the creator of weepy movies but the world's leading manufacturer of folding tables says that 31 percent of adults want TV mom Claire Huxtable cooking their Thanksgiving dinner. Carol Brady came in second (with 27 percent), though you know Alice is the one really working the magic behind that island.Other findings from the survey: Peg Bundy is the TV mom you most want far, far away from the stove. Speaking of the Bradys, Marcia is the brood member you'd most like at your kiddie table. (Jan came in second; cry me a river.) Adults and children alike voted Miley Cyrus the child star they most want seated at the kiddie table. (Perhaps only so they can sell the folding chairs next to her for $2,000 a pop.) Today's kids prefer High School Musical's Gabriella (51 percent) to Sharpay (19 percent), while Drake beats Josh (45 to 37 percent).

So for Jerry Leyden, Chuck Wurzbach, Art Hoath and the rest of the crew, I offer you the best of the Class of 1987!The Cosby Show By its third season, Denise was just about to show off her Angel Heart (and more), Rudy ...
