Over the years, the dads on TV have run the gamut from Homer Simpson to Cliff Huxtable. When I was a kid, I loved Bill Bixby as the dad on The Courtship of Eddie’s Father and Uncle Bill (Brian Keith) on Family Affair. Today, Zeek Braverman (played by Craig T. Nelson), patriarch of the Parenthood brood gets my “top dad” vote!

Below are 40 TV shows that have some of the smartest, coolest, funniest or politically incorrect dads and father figures out there. See one or more of your favorite dads below?

    I would love to try and review "The Notebook", but I'd spend more time crying than typing, maybe Photography is a safer bet.

    Notebook was a good movie, but save the tears - this one's only for TV dads ;)

    I reviewed The Courtship of Eddie's Father. I loved that show. Turns out I'm just a year younger than Eddie. Nice to still be younger than someone once in awhile. :) http://www.squidoo.com/do-you-remember-the-courtship-of-eddies-father
