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''.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
