[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_my-dad-says-6_8425.jpg]]

A sitcom on Creator/{{CBS}} starring WilliamShatner. It was based on the {{Twitter}} account [[http://twitter.com/#!/shitmydadsays @shitmydadsays]], created by [[WellDoneSonGuy Justin Halpern]] and consisting of quotes from his real-life father, Sam.

Officially stylized as ''$#*! My Dad Says'' and pronounced as ''Bleep My Dad Says''.

The show did not go over well with critics, to say the least. It has [[http://www.metacritic.com/tv/bleep-my-dad-says/season-1...html a 28 rating]] on Metacritic. It was cancelled after one season. It's pretty comparable with another similar flop, ''LivingWithFran''.

!!This show provides examples of:

* AdaptationExpansion: From 67 tweets to a ''TV series''.
* AdvertisingCampaigns: During the original airing of the show's pilot, special ads for the WallStreet sequel [[WallStreet Money Never Sleeps]] - which would open the next day - were headlined "$#*! Gordon Gekko Says".
* BrickJoke: The sock in episode 3.
* BlandNameProduct: "The Hotcake Corral" (Golden Corral)
* CensoredTitle
* DrivingTest: Part of the pilot's plot. 74-year-old Ed must pass or face five years without a license.
* EroticEating: ...The spaghetti...
* {{Expy}}: Ed is very similar to CBS's other crazy bastard, [[KingOfQueens Arthur Spooner]]
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: It's probably the only show on television whose proper title is literally illegal to say on any of the stations it airs on. [[CensoredTitle So they don't.]]
* IShouldWriteABookAboutThis: "Come on, Dad, it's not like I'm going to make a living writing down things you say!"
* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: The title starts with one of the SevenDirtyWords, making it problematic at best. It also created awkwardness for a less raunchy reason: Some viewers' DVR machines were unable to recognize the non-alphabetic characters in the SymbolSwearing title, making it impossible to find.
* JerkAss: Ed. And is really PlayingAgainstType and is kinda... off-putting.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: But he has a rarely seen softer side.
* LargeHam: Amazingly subverted with Shatner, who's rather subdued on this show. Justin, on the other hand...
* LimitedWardrobe: Ed is often seen wearing a rifle green fishing vest.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Henry sees Bonnie naked in "The Manly Thing to Do". Her reaction is an odd DullSurprise.
* PetTheDog: Played literally. We get to see Ed's soft side with Root Beer the dog. Initially he warns the dog he's not one to show affection but quickly becomes very attached to the dog. At one point he only visits Vince and his wife just to be around Root Beer.
* RascallyRaccoon: At 5 in the morning, Ed grabs a raccoon by the tail and swings it around and into his shed after it got into his garden cucumbers. The same raccoon becomes a BrickJoke late in te episode.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: "Easy, Writer" has Henry writing a story about Ed (albeit not a Twitter account).
-->'''Henry''': Dad, it was just one article! I'm not going to make a career out of quoting you.
* RealSongThemeTune: "Your Dogs" by Music/BenFolds.
* RunningGag: In episode 3, "...sooner, rather than later."
* SelectiveSquick: Parodied in-universe; Bonnie berates Ed for hitting on a [[MsFanservice scantly clad well endowed woman]] in which moments later she gleefully admires a young man's muscular abs.
* SymbolSwearing / LuckyCharmsTitle
* WellDoneSonGuy: The driving force of the series (and twitter account).
