TV Dads

Which character do you most resemble?


June 2014

Television is filled with sit-coms and dramas that showcase a variety of father figures. This Father's Day, we thought we'd take a lighthearted look at a few of them to see which one reminds you of the dad in your house.

Name: Phil Dunphy

Show: Modern Family

Quote: "I'm a cool dad. That's my thang! I'm hip, I surf the web, I text."

Brief bio: Phil is a "glass half full" kind of guy. He's beloved by his family, although he's kind of a goof. A big kid himself, he often gets in trouble for going along with his young son's crazy ideas.

You're a Phil if: You're fun-loving, see the best in people and know all the dance moves to High School Musical.

Name: Rick Grimes

Show: The Walking Dead

Quote: "They're messin' with the wrong people!"

Brief bio: Rick is a one-time police officer turned hardcore zombie slayer. He's loyal to his companions and fights for the good of humanity. He can stare fear in the face and not blink, although he has a softer side with his son Carl. When you back him into a corner, he'll come out swinging!

You're a Rick if: You're loyal, fearless and always ready to fight the good fight!

Name: Homer Simpson

Show: The Simpsons

Quote: Operator! Give me the number for 911!

Brief bio: Homer embodies all the traits of a stereotypical guy (loves beer, TV and is pretty clueless when it comes to relationships) but you can't help but like him.

You're a Homer if: You're lucky to be married to a very understanding wife. And you can't resist a donut.
