Thinking about a dad in a non-fatherly way is gross. On so many levels.
But at TV dad? Well, that’s a whole ‘nother story.
Everyone at one point has been watching a show and had a rare, but undeniable attraction to a TV Dad. An “I wish I could reach into the TV, knock his wife out and take him right there on the kitchen table” sorta moment. Or a, “If that man didn’t have spit up on his shoulder I would totally do him,” situation.
I know I’m not alone….
There are just some delicious TV dads. The kind of dads that make dad crushes OK (or not quite as gross and sick and wrong).
So, instead of privately fantasizing about all the Hot Dads I’d like to screw, I’ve compiled a list for your reading and viewing pleasure.
Frank Lambert on Step-by-Step (played by Patrick Duffy). As one of the only men my mother and I agree on, this TV dad is totally scrumptious; he can balance his kids, his wife’s kids and handle the housework…all in skin tight jeans.
Ricky Ricardo on I Love Lucy (played by Desi Arnaz). Even in black & white, this dad can balance Lucy’s crazy antics and manage the Copacabana. Plus, he can sing. Nuff said.
Uncle Jesse on Full House (played by John Stamos). Yes, even with the mullet. As everyone’s favorite rebel, when Uncle Jesse became a daddy to twins on Full House, he got even hotter. Who can ride a Harley, rock out in his basement and change a diaper? This guy can. Sign me up.
Tom Scavo on Desperate Housewives (played by Doug Savant). No man is hotter on this show than Mr. Scavo, who has a litter of children running around. He’s got a hot body and a smile to kill. I would definitely ride my bike around his neighborhood (if you know what I’m sayinnnn’).
Elliot Stabler on Law & Order: SVU (played by Christopher Meloni). I love a man in uniform. He gets the bad guys and tries to be the best dad for his girls. Not to mention, his abs and tattoos are a serious killer for me.
Sam Bennet on Private Practice (played by Taye Diggs). I love him in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and now, playing a hot, alternative medicine doctor dad on TV only adds to this man’s serious hotness.
Seeley Booth on Bones (played by David Boreanez). If you liked him on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you’ll like this more mature, still seriously dreamy, David Boreanez. A hot dad on TV and a fantastic husband in real life. Sooooo delicious.
Michael Vaughn on Alias (played by Michael Vartan). I love his character on Alias; fighting crime and being a good daddy in the mix. Plus, he’s not too shabby to look at either. Tell me you didn’t love him in Never Been Kissed…I sure did. Although, now he’s a little daddy-er, a little older and a whole lot sexier.
John Winchester on Supernatural (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan). His dimples, his hot sons, his hot body, his dimples, his raspy sexy voice, oh and, did I mention his dimples? He watched his wife die on the show, raised his own sons to be supernatural ass kickin’ dudes and he’s an ex-marine. HELLO?!?!! Where are these men in real life??? (Yes, I realize supernatural ass kickin’ dudes are about as real as Heidi Montag’s lips.)
Luke Danes on Gilmore Girls (played by Scott Patterson). Initially not a father, but just a loving friend of Lorelai and Rory, Luke’s world gets turned upside down when April comes into the picture and proves he’s her dad. He always does the right thing (adorable) and I sure wouldn’t mind coming into the local diner and getting my eggs and toast from him every morning (hot).
Who are your favorite TV dads???
