New show: "Dads"
Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox
There's no doubt that Seth MacFarlane, the "Family Guy" creator and recent Oscar host who sang an ode about the breasts of actresses, can be a funny guy. He most certainly is tasteless, tacky and politically incorrect, but still, he can be funny.
Alas, the latest MacFarlane creation, "Dads," the new Fox sitcom premiering Tuesday night, forgets to bring the funny. It's off color, loud and, frankly, just a chore to sit through.
The concept is that two video game entrepreneurs (Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi) suddenly have their respective fathers (Peter Riegert and Martin Mull) show up in their lives. And hilarity will ensue. Or at least, that's the idea.
