It's good riddance for Seth Green's 'Dads.'
Ah, the ruthless machine that is the U.S. television industry. It's ruthless, but it's fun to watch sometimes - especially when the executives get it so, so wrong. This week, Fox cut ties with several series that is desperately hoped would be the next Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, etc, etc.
Seth Green's 'Dads' Has Been Cancelled
In fact, of the network's freshman comedies for 2013-2014, only the excellent Brooklyn Nine-Nine survived the cull. Gone is Enlisted. Gone is Surviving Jack. Gone is Greg Kinnear's Rake. Oh, and it's also good riddance to the relentlessly bad 'Dads', which starred Seth Green and Giovani Ribisi.

Despite a reasonable premise, Seth MacFarlane's 'Dads' just hasn't worked. It just hasn't.
There was plenty of hope for Dads. Actually, there wasn't really. But, well...we don't know why we said that. No, there just wasn't.
The premise is decent. It follow the lives of video game company founders Eli and Warner (Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi) whose lives are turned upside down when - you guessed it - their fathers (Peter Riegert, Martin Mull) move in.

Fox has announced a strong looking line-up for the new season.
Wow. Fox has really shown its hand for next season, offering four big new shows in the bid to get ahead in the race for ratings. The network has made high profile comedy pickups including the Seth Macfarlane produced Dads and the Andy Samberg starring Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Elsewhere, Fox ordered 13 episodes of of Surviving Jack with Chris Meloni, Enlisted with Geoff Stults and Us and Them starring Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel. But which is likely to become the next Family Guy or New Girl?
Fox announces its fall lineup.
Fox has announced a large chunk of the shows that will fill next season’s roster and there is certainly a lot to look forward to. The channel will air comedies, created by big names in the business, such as Brooklyn Nine-Nine, brought to you by the producers of The Office Dan Goor and Michael Schur. On top of this, it will star SNL’s own Andy Samberg.
There’s a lot more coming on the comedy front though, such as Dads ¬– a sitcom about a pair of childhood friends (played by Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi), whose dads move in with them. And if it sounds like your typical sitcom fodder at first, take a moment to note that Family Guy creator and recent controversial Oscar host Seth McFarlane will take the wheel on that one, so it has a chance of not being a complete letdown.
Last on the comedy roster Surviving Jack, starring Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’s Christopher Meloni as a dad in ‘90s SoCal. It is based on Justin Halpern’s semi-autobiographical book, I Suck at Girls.”
