Father's Day Duke-out: Nominate your Favorite TV Dads! - Featured

As we celebrate our own dads, granddads, and father-figures this weekend for Father's Day, it's only right to give our favorite TV dads some appreciation too!


Afterall, they've taught us many a lesson our dads were trying to teach while we were too engrossed in the TV to hear, and have kept us laughing, smiling, and shedding a few tears over the years.


So, we want your nominations for your favorite TV dads, then we'll have a friendly Father's Day duke-out where the dads nominated will then have to compete for your votes as the top favorite TV dad on SideReel!


Comment below telling us your favorite TV dads, and feel free to list as many as you want, plus list someone already noted by another Reeler. Nominations will be accepted Wednesday (6/17) through Friday morning (6/19), then we'll begin the duke-out voting round for SideReel's favorite dad that will run Friday through Sunday.


Go forth and nominate!
