    Dan Conner has got to be on there too. Also, Louie Anderson's dad from Life with Louie would be up there for me, but that's just me.

    John Mahoney. Frasier's dad.
    Funny thing is that he is only 12 years older.

    1- Fred Sanford
    2- Homer Simpson
    3- Archie Bunker
    4- Frank Costanza
    5- Alton Benes (Lawrence Tierney - Elaine's Father)
    6- Dexter Morgan (TV's Dexter)
    7- Harry Morgan (Dexter's Dad)
    8- Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton -Big Love)
    9- Nathaniel Fisher (Richard Jenkins - Six Feet Under)
    10- Tony Soprano

    Weird list now that I look at it. Two dads are dead - or at least ghosts that haunt the minds of their sons trying to help them make better choices. Ironically Michael C Hall plays the son of both of these fathers and makes himself the list portraying a father - that you only see being a father in flash-forwards..

    I couldn't think of one good father from either of my favorite shows Deadwood and The Wire but I'd take McNulty for #1 bad father..
