The 100 Hottest TV Dads In History

Let's talk about dads, shall we? More specifically TV dads. Because I simply cannot imagine I am the only one in the world who watches television and notices the hot fathers and if you say you don't notice... I don't believe you.

Sure, there are studs closer to our age in shows and I write about those guys too (ahem, John B and Paxton), but I'm just here to give credit where credit is due. And let's face it, some of these small-screen daddies are aging like a fine wine. Please don't shoot the messenger, OK? Also, this is a list of DILFs, not men who would win World's Best Dad awards, so don't come at me when you see guys like Ward Cameron on here — we're strictly talking looks, got it?

So, without further ado, I give you 100 of the hottest TV dads in history, from most recent to oldest TV shows:

I personally love using song lyrics as my Instagram captions, especially from songs that I love or that mean a lot to me, and I happen to love Harry Styles and all of his songs! So I made a list of lyrics from each of his songs that you could use in your next Instagram caption.
