Critic Consensus: Even with master comedians Don Rickles and Richard Lewis at the helm, Daddy Dearest fails to rise above being a mean-spirted, uninspired sitcom.
Tv Season Info
This annoying sitcom pairs Don Rickles with Richard Lewis, each stand-up comic doing what he does best: Rickles insults Lewis, who alternates between guilt and anguish.
Fox's new sitcom is so bad - so utterly unredeemable - that it's difficult to know where to begin with a description of it.
Don Rickles likes to boast that he was doing Archie Bunker before Archie Bunker was cool. Problem is, he's still doing Archie Bunker long after it ceased being cool.
"Daddy Dearest" may be the most unlikeable show of the 1993-94 television season -- a prime-time series so loudly, so relentlessly in-your-face rude, obnoxious and irritating, it almost qualifies as a sadistic act of genius.
