In honor of Father's Day, BuddyTV is proud to bring back our list of the 15 hottest dads on TV. Back in the day, TV fathers were old, proper men who came home after a long day of work, ate the dinner their wives slaved over that day, then gave some sage advice to their sons. Now, TV dads come in all shapes and sizes. There are aging hipster dads, devoted action hero dads, and even teenage dads.
What’s more, the dads on TV have gotten a whole lot hotter. In today’s TV culture, fathers are allowed to have relationships, feelings, and even sex. They are no longer the chaste paternal archetypes of yesteryear. In honor of this, BuddyTV has combed through recent TV history to put together our list of 15 hottest dads around.
We thought long and hard about what qualifies as a hot dad. Yes, for some people on the list, simply being physically attractive was enough. For others, it took a bit more of the fatherhood aspect. A hot dad is a devoted father, one who loves his family, one willing to do anything for them. A hot dad makes you want to marry him, adopt his kids, and start a life together. These 15 all fit that bill. Government agents and ex-cons, former rock stars and ex-basketball stars, lawyers and doctors, whatever your taste, we have a hot dad for you. So click below to start the tour of our 15 hottest TV dads, listed in alphabetical order.
