I would have thrown Andy Griffith into the mix, as well as Mr. C from Happy Days. And, Michael Landon was a great dad on Little House. The editors of Askmen.com asked parenting and psychology experts who they thought to be the best dads on televison. Here are the ones they came up with:
- Phil Dunphy (played byTy Burrell)on Modern Family.
- Philip Banks (played by the lateJames Avery) onThe Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
- Jack Pearson (played byMilo Ventimiglia) onThis Is Us.
- Andre Johnson (played byAnthony Anderson) onBlack-ish.
- Danny Tanner (played byBob Saget) onFull House.
- Ron Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) onParks and Recreation.
- Mitchell Pritchett (played byJesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron Tucker (played byEric Stonestreet) onModern Family.
- Louis Huang (played by Randall Park) on Fresh Off the Boat.
- Martin Crane (played by the late John Mahoney) on Frasier.
