In honour of fathers’ day tomorrow I thought it fitting to honour the best dads on TV. From the knowledgeable caregivers you looked up to as a kid to the flawed and well-intentioned patriarchs of a more current television landscape, these are the men who’s fatherly devotion really made an impression.

1. Keith Mars – Veronica Mars

2. Sandy Cohen – The O.C.

3. Alan Matthews – Boy Meets World

4. Ray Campbell- Sister, Sister

5. Danny Tanner – Full House

6. Jed Bartlet –The West Wing

7. Heathcliff HuxtableThe Cosby Show
[2017 update: we thought about changing this but an actor is not a character so he stays]

8. Dr. Andy Brown – Everwood

9. Yasir Hamoudi- Little Mosque on the Prairie

10. Martin Crane – Frasier

Best Non-Dad Dad:

Rupert Giles- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
