Our picks for the 50 coolest fathers on television.by John Kubicek


#50 Frank Reynolds, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

He’s mean, cruel, and has a temper as short as his stature, but there’s something undeniably cool about a dad who is willing to act as immature as his son.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Frank Reynolds, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia


#49 Al Bundy, Married…with Children

Have you ever scored four touchdowns in a single game at Polk High? Al may be a pathetic shoe salesman, but once upon a time, he was the coolest kid around, and in between visits to the Nudie Bar and meetings with NO MA’AM, there’s still some slim traces of his former coolness.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Al Bundy, Married...with Children


#48 Ricky Underwood, The Secret Life of the American Teenager

Ricky is certainly too cool for school, setting his sights on every girl wearing a skirt and moving in for the kill. This “sex first, questions later” approach didn’t pan out when he accidentally got Amy pregnant, but now he’s a bad boy dad playing by his own rules.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Ricky Underwood, The Secret Life of the American Teenager


#47 Hal, Malcolm in the Middle

Hal is cool because, like a child, he finishes everything he starts, no matter how ridiculous. If you’re looking for someone to build a scale replica of Pearl Harbor, Hal will go into painstaking detail and spend countless hours with you to make it perfect.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Hal, Malcolm in the Middle


#46 Homer Simpson, The Simpsons

He might choke you, and he’ll probably forget your saxomophone recital, but Homer is always there to be taken advantage of. Also, he is a Grammy winning former astronaut, so that has to carry some cool points.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Homer Simpson, The Simpsons


#45 Michael Bluth, Arrested Development

Sometimes Michael tries to act a little too cool, but his intentions are sweet and he’d be a cool dad to have anyway.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Michael Bluth, Arrested Development


#44 Jack Carter, Eureka

He may not be the brightest guy around, but Sheriff Carter can hang out with the best of them, using his charm and street smarts to save the day.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Jack Carter, Eureka


#43 Sam Bennett, Private Practice

Having a hot doctor as a dad would certainly earn you a ton of female friends, though you shouldn’t tell them that beneath his attractive exterior is a somewhat nerdy asthmatic.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Sam Bennett, Private Practice


#42 Tom Scavo, Desperate Housewives

Having three sons brought out the inner man-child in Tom Scavo, and when he’s not buying mid-life crisis sports cars or opening pizzerias, he’s a big lovable goofball.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Tom Scavo, Desperate Housewives


#41 Philip Banks, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

We’re not sure if Uncle Phil is to blame for Carlton’s overall nerdiness, but we know this successful proud papa is a loving man who welcomes one and all into his family.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Philip Banks, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air


#40 Charles Bing, Friends

This might be awkward, but if you’re looking for the world’s most fabulous father, look no further than Chandler’s drag queen father, hilariously played by Kathleen Turner.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Charles Bing, Friends


#39 Martin Crane, Frasier

Most kids would love a dad who loves to sit back with a beer and watch sports. What makes Martin Crane doubly cool is that he still finds ways to love his neurotic, overly analytical sons.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Martin Crane, Frasier


#38 Robbie Ray Stewart, Hannah Montana

Between down-home sayings and country-fried goodness, Robbie Ray is a dad who will join the fun while still playing the role of father and manager to his incredibly successful daughter.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Robbie Ray Stewart, Hannah Montana


#37 Luke Danes, Gilmore Girls

Somehow his daughter became a genius, but Luke is at his coolest when he’s the surly proprietor of greasy food and bottomless cups of coffee.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Luke Danes, Gilmore Girls


#36 Harry Wilson, 90210

Having your dad be the principal of your high school might be weird at first, but luckily Harry isn’t your typical dad, knowing when to back off and when to be an involved parent.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Harry Wilson, 90210


#35 Steve Brady, Sex and the City

I’m not sure if Steve is a cool dad or if Miranda is just such an annoyingly awful mother that, by comparison, Steve is the coolest man alive. Either way, his son is very lucky to have at least one parent who won’t binge eat or flip out over the smallest problem.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Steve Brady, Sex and the City


#34 Hulk Hogan, Hogan Knows Best

There are certainly benefits to having your dad be a professional wrestler. You’ll always be the coolest kid in school, and no one will mess with you.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Hulk Hogan, Hogan Knows Best


#33 Red Forman, That ’70s Show

Red was the last of a dying breed, a real man’s man who doesn’t put up with whiny nonsense. The fact that we was still able to put up with all the hippie bologna that went on with his son’s friends is a testament to how cool he really is.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Red Forman, That ’70s Show


#32 Walter Bishop, Fringe

He’s not always reliable, but having a mad scientist for a dad is very cool, because you never know what he’ll say or do. Also, it’s cool to have a dad who will go to an alternate reality to bring back an alternate version of his son after his real son died.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Walter Bishop, Fringe


#31 Steve Bartowski, Chuck

At first glance, Steve is an awkward and nerdy guy. But when you find out he’s secretly Orion, suddenly Chuck’s dad becomes the coolest super spy around, with all the best gadgets.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Steve Bartowski, Chuck


#30 Jax Teller, Sons of Anarchy

Most dads go to an office and wear collared shirts filled with starch. Jax wears a leather jacket and rides a motorcycle. That earns him instant cool points.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Jax Teller, Sons of Anarchy


#29 Max, United States of Tara

It takes a great man to put up with Tara’s multiple personalities, and Max does it wonderfully, giving in and learning to love the ride.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Max, United States of Tara


#28 Mitch Leary, Dawson’s Creek

Mitch Leery never had a perfect marriage but he always strove to be the perfect father. Through divorce, remarriage and so much more, Mitch never faltered in his love and devotion for his son Dawson. It’s a shame Mitch didn’t live to see Dawson’s film career blossom like he always knew it would.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Mitch Leary, Dawson’s Creek


#27 Emerson Cod, Pushing Daisies

How many dads would go to the lengths of writing a po-up book in order to send a coded message to his long lost daughter? This fast-talking private eye has the brains, brawn and wit to be one cool cat.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Emerson Cod, Pushing Daisies


#26 Perry Cox, Scrubs

He might be rude and without compassion for any other living creature on the planet, but he loves his wife and loves his children, no matter how much he may deny. Sure he’s pompous, but what makes Dr. Cox cool is that he has the skills and long-winded speeches to back it up.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Perry Cox, Scrubs


#25 Tobias Funke, Arrested Development

You probably wouldn’t want Tobias coming around when you’re with your friends, but there’s a certain charm and coolness factor to having a dad so out there that you can get away with anything and he’ll still think you’re sweeter than molasses. Also, he’s not afraid to paint himself blue or dress up like a British female nanny.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Tobias Funke, Arrested Development


#24 Ozzy Osbourne, The Osbournes

He may be the Prince of Darkness, but it’s better to be the son of the prince. Imagine getting to tell your friends about the time your dad bit the head off a bat. That could be cool. Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Ozzy Osbourne, The Osbournes


#23 Jesse Katsopolis, Full House

Nicky and Alex are two lucky twins to have a dad with hair that won’t stop. He may always be Uncle Jesse to most, but for those boys, he’s the coolest dad in the world.Vote for Your Favorite TV Dad

Jesse Katsopolis, Full House


#22 HRG, Heroes

He may not be Claire’s real dad, but…
