10 TV Dads That You Want To Marry (Among Other Things)

Just in time for Father's Day lets look at some TV dads that are inadvertently sexy. Cuz that's not at all creepy…ENJOY!

Posted on

1. Phil Dunphy (Modern Family)

Phil is the accidently hot dad. He's goofy, unreliable and down right unsexy and yet THAT makes him sexy!

Favorite Phil moment: When Haley goes off in the elevator with a guy twice her age and Phil goes after her, "That's my little girl! I need her to know that no guy on Earth is good enough for her, much less a slimy middle-aged jeans salesman!"

2. Coach Eric Taylor (Friday Night Lights)

Eric is that stern dad hot. He's hard, but it's because he will do ANYTHING to protect those he cares most about. Plus he's just super hot! Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can't Lose. Swoon!

Favorite Eric moment: The series finale when Eric (despite his awesome deal) lets Tami pursue her dreams, "I turned the contract down. It's your turn, I wanna go to Philadelphia. Will you take me to Philadelphia please?"


3. Mike Brady (The Brady Bunch)

Mike is the "more into his wife than kids" hot dad. Let's face it, he is constantly trying to get into Carol's…"station wagon". I gotta give it to him, having 6 whiny kids and a live in maid for some reason, he is still just as turned on by his wife as the day they met (which was never mentioned on the show, so let's say through Tinder).

Favorite Mike moment: Generally all those "life lessons" he throws at his kids, this one in particular on Cindy tattling, "Cindy, you know by tattling on your friends, you're really just tattling on yourself. By tattling on your friends, you're just telling them that you're a tattletale. Now is that the tale you want to tell? "

Now go to your room so your mom and I can make more Bradys!

4. Sandy Cohen (The OC)

Sandy is your crime fighting hot dad. I mean he's a public defender for Chrismukkah sake! He's the rock in that family and while he's for the most part always doing the right thing, he has a wild untamed eyebrows kinda side.

Favorite Sandy moment: When he tells Seth to let him know if he's planning on running away from home so that he can come too, "Since the minute you were born I knew I would never take another easy breath without knowing that you were all right."

5. Danny Tanner (Full House)

Danny is the "doing the best he can" hot dad, clearly the patriarch in this hodgepodge of a family. He gets to be a lot of different dads; strict, caring and goofy, with the help from Jesse and Joey.

Favorite Danny moment: From the first episode when DJ wants to move to the garage, "we're still a family and right now is when we really need to stick together. So it's up to you: either you move back into the house or all five of us are moving into the garage, but nothing is going to break up this team."

6. Michael Bluth (Arrested Development)

Michael is your dry and witty dad matched with those Teen Wolf 2 good looks making him super sexy. He's always trying to help his family, who clearly doesn't deserve his support and he want to be best friends with his son, which in this case, is a good thing.

Favorite Michael moment: Trying to have a fatherly talk with George Michael, forgetting the dangers of the Cornballer, "Mother of God! Oh! Every damn time! Oh, this is a big one!"

7. Tony Micelli (Who's the Boss?)

Tony is that sexy stay at home dad, even though technically it was his job. A perfect blend of Italian Stallion and Mr. Mom, who despite being a former BASEBALL PLAYER, took a job as a HOUSEKEEPER all for his loving daughter. What a man, but did our 80's selves really buy this?

Favorite Tony moment: All the sexual tension with Angela, but one time when she is stood up for a date Tony says, "He don't know what he's missing." She playfully asks if he's referring to the lobster bisque and Tony replies, "Yea, that too."

8. Ricky Ricardo (I Love Lucy)

Ricky makes this list less for his fatherly ways and more for the fact that he's a hot singer at a club with an accent, need I say more? His voice, looks and love for Lucy after all her shenanigans would make me want to push the twin beds together!

Favorite Ricky moment: When Lucy goes to the club to tell him she's pregnant by requesting for him to sing, "We're Having a Baby" and his reaction when he finds out.

9. Reverend Eric Camden (7th Heaven)

Eric is a modern day Mike Brady with a twist of Jesus. He is always offering up worldly advice and on this list is the most unexplainable kind of sexy.

Favorite Eric moment: He gives out factoids of information like condemns at Planned Parenthood. Here, in a "very special" episode, Eric explains what "huffing" does, "A bloody nose is the least of it. Huffing causes liver damage and kidney failure. Heart failure."

I'll never "huff" again Reverend!

10. Don Draper (Mad Men)

Don is the "I don't give a shit about my kids" dad, very sexy! I think at this point he only remembers he has a daughter and I guess someone's in Boy Scouts? What do you expect? His mother's a whore!

Favorite Don moment: Although Don selling Kodak's Carousel with his own family photos is genius, Don explaining love tops it. "What you call love was invented by men like me to sell nylon socks."

I think my heart just skipped a beat!
