The Parents Television Council is once again campaigning against CBS new show $#*! My Dad Says, and this time they're convinced that the sitcom, starring William Shatner, is about poop. This morning, the PTC issued a stern warning letter to 300 advertisers, urging them that buying time during the sitcom would make them complicit in the effort to serve up excrement in front of children and families.Â When asked to comment, Max Mutchnick, co-creator and executive producer of $#*! My Dad Says, assured EW there is no title change planned. As a parent, it is my opinion that the Parents Television Council has much more important s-t to focus on than the title of a sitcom called BLEEP My Dad Says,Â said Mutchnick. Well, s-t. Source Here
Even William Shatner thinks calling his show Bleep My Dad Says is a bad idea. "You know what I wish? I wish they'd call it 'Sh--,'" Shatner said of his upcoming CBS sitcom $#*! My Dad Says during Wednesday's fall TV previews. The network is referring to the show with the more family-friendly moniker "Bleep My Dad Says." "The word sh-- is all around us," he continued. "It isn't a terrible term. Why are we pussy-footing?" Alas, the "bleep" appears to be permanent. $#*! tells the story of Henry, a struggling writer who moves in with his outspoken father Ed (Shatner). The show is based on Justin Halpern's popular Twitter account, a collection of humorous, crabby - and often offensive - quips Halpern credits to his real-life 74-year-old dad, Samuel Halpern. (Sample tweet from June 28: "Don't focus on the one guy who hates you. You don't go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog shit.") It has amassed nearly 1.5 million followers. On the way to its fall premiere (Thursday, Sept. 23, 8:30/7:30c), the series has undergone a creative overhaul. Since the original pilot was shot, Jonathan Sadowski has been cast to replace Ryan Devlin as Henry, and producers today said a romantic story line for Henry has been nixed. To Read More Click Here .
William Shatner has a new TV son: CBS has recast the young lead who will star opposite him in the fall comedy $#*! My Dad Says. But that's not the only change Shatner plans for the show, he tells TVGuide.com. The role played by Ryan Devlin in the show's pilot will now be played by Friday the 13th star Jonathan Sandowski, Shatner confirmed Friday in an interview at Comic-Con. The recasting was first reported by Deadline TV. "I just met with him as he auditioned," Shatner said. "So I don't know him, but I'm looking forward to it." The show is based on a Twitter feed and book by Justin Halpern. Shatner said that since the pilot, he's gotten in better touch with his character by reading Halpern's book, based on the sometimes bizarre things he attributes to his real-life dad. The pilot will now need to be re-shot with Sandowski. "I've had some time to think about the character and there's an interesting choice that has to be made," Shatner said. "I like to work from a core on a character, and that core isn't there yet." But it will be, he added. "It's amusing," he said of the book. "But what comes through is the relationship with the father and son. So that relationship... I'm seeing more clearly what my character is and what my relationship should be with my son."

So CBS has given the green light to a new comedy based on the Twitter account (and I'll never get used to writing that sentence, "based on the Twitter account) S**t My Dad Says. It's going to costar William Shatner, and from the clips released at the upfront presentation a couple of weeks ago, it looks rather awful. But never mind about all that. What about that title? CBS obviously can't say that first word, so they're going around calling it 'Bleep My Dad Says.' That's how it will advertised and that's how we're all supposed to say it. But oddly, that's not the way it's spelled. The first word is pronounced "Bleep" but is spelled "$#*!" Confusing? Suddenly, spelling the TNT drama 'HawthoRNe' doesn't seem so tedious. They actually wanted to spell it "$#!+" but that was deemed too close to the actual word "shit" so they gave it a thumbs down. Here are my five suggestions for titles they could have given the show.

$#*! My Dad Says is already causing a $#*! storm. The Parents Television Council is threatening to challenge the broadcast license of any CBS affiliate that airs the show or promotions for it before 10/9c. Inspired by a Twitter feed of the same name, the series follows a dad who says things that generally embarrass his son. CBS plans to air the series, starring William Shatner, on Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c this fall. "CBS intentionally chose to insert an expletive into the actual name of a show, and, despite its claim that the word will be bleeped, it is just CBS' latest demonstration of its contempt for families and the public," said PTC President Tim Winter. "There are an infinite number of alternatives that CBS could have chosen but its desire to shock and offend is crystal clear in this decision." "It will in no way be indecent and will adhere to all CBS standards," CBS spokesman Phil Gonzales said. "Parents who choose to do so will find the show can easily be blocked using their V-Chip."

William Shatner's television career spans more than half a century, but until now he has never been a regular on a sitcom. That will change in the fall when he stars in "$#*! My Dad Says" on CBS, which will make TV history in two ways: It's the first sitcom ever based on a Twitter feed, and to our knowledge it's also the first one whose full title can't be spoken on the air.

Take a first look at CBS' new series $#*! MY DAD SAYS. After CBS' 2010-2011 primetime TV schedule announcement, it's time to take a closer look at all the new shows that will soon grace our screens. $#*! MY DAD SAYS Synopsis: $#*! MY DAD SAYS, based on the popular Twitter feed by Justin Halpern, stars Emmy Award winner William Shatner as Ed Goodson, a forthright and opinionated dad who relishes expressing his unsolicited and often wildly politically incorrect observations to anyone within earshot. Nobody is immune from Ed's rants, including his sons, Henry, a struggling writer-turned-unpaid blogger; and Vince (Will Sasso), the meek half of his husband/wife real estate duo with domineering Kathleen (Nicole Sullivan). When Henry finds he can no longer afford to pay rent to his pretty roommate -- and secret admirer -- Sam (Stephanie Lemelin), Ed reveals a soft spot and invites Henry to move in with him. Henry agrees, knowing that the verbal assault will not abate and now there will be no escape. Describing their father/son relationship is tricky - but Ed will easily come up with a few choice words. Emmy Award winners David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television. Emmy Award winner James Burrows directed. Source & Preview
