It’s no secret that William Shatner has signed on for and will star in a new CBS comedy called “$#*! My Dad Says“. It’s based on the popular Twitter page of the same name, where someone’s father dishes out the cold hard facts of life to the general public. On Wednesday the actor attended a Fall Preview , where countless members of the press got to see what awaits us next season. It was there that Shatner let loose on the show’s title. He wants “shit” in there and he wants it now!
Even though executives from CBS were in attendance at the preview event Shatner let his feelings be known on the naming matter. At the moment, they’re considering the title “Bleep My Dad Says,” and here’s what the actor had to say about that:
“You know what I wish? I wish they’d call it ‘Sh–’. “The word sh– is all around us,” he continued. “It isn’t a terrible term. Why are we pussy-footing?”
Well, Shatner the network doesn’t want the FCC all over their asses that’s why. CBS has literally been scared shitless to put anything on TV that’s mildly offensive since the Super Bowl and “nipplegate.” The title would be funny but costly as well.
What do you think of the show’s title? Should they change it?
