Editors Note: We’re huge fans of Jimmy Fallon so we were pumped to discover a few months ago that he was the executive producer behind the new TV sitcom, “Guys With Kids.” You know, the show with the huge posters displaying three macho dads sporting sunglasses & wearing their babies in carriers. An awesome visual! While we think Fallon has a ripe opportunity to display what it means to be a “good dad” while still being hilarious, we were sorely disappointed with show. If he’s looking for plot ideas, we’ve got 650 local NYC Dads who would be willing to share their experiences. Below is a guest post by NYC Dads Group member, Seth Leibowitz, as he shares his opinions about the new show, “Guys With Kids.” And, check out this clip of Jimmy Fallon & the co-stars on the Today Show discussing how he conceived of the idea for the show.
Remember in the movie Total Recall (the original with Arnold Schwarzenegger and not the eyesore of a remake with Colin Farrell) when the cab driver Benny says “Man… I’ve got five kids to feed!”
That wasn’t as funny.
It was downright overkill.
