With Bill Cosby’s recent mistrial for sexual assault, it got us thinking about all the other TV dads who have failed to lead by example and instead have done some pretty awful things, yet remained fairly unscathed. While Cosby faces multiple counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand, whom he allegedly drugged and sexually abused, the recent mistrial of his June proceedings will lead to a continuation of the matter, more than two years after dozens of women have come forward accusing Cosby of similar abusive acts.
With that in mind, we look to some of the other popular actor TV dads who have screwed the pooch, anything from filthy comedy acts and lewd acts in public to hefty cocaine possession and sexual abuse of a minor. And then of course there is Charlie Sheen. Welp.
So let’s all have a look into your previous TV role models and make sure you didn’t pick up too many life lessons from them, other than “don’t always trust your priest” and “don’t offer refuge to Randy Quaid.”
