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