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:

Falling For Fall

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.

Standard.net

Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
