Is "Dads" the Year's Most Racist Sitcom?
Mother Jones - over 3 years
"Well, you're lucky your dads are American; my dad beat me with a math book 'til I was 16," says Veronica, an Asian American character (played by Brenda Song) on the upcoming Fox sitcom Dads. The new series (executive produced by Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy, American Dad!, and Ted fame) premieres on September 17, but it has already generated controversy for its comic portrayal of Asian Americans and the Chinese. The show focuses on two founders of a video game company, and how they deal with their intrusive fathers. Comedy supposedly ensues, some of it at the expense of Asian folk. In the pilot episode, the main characters (played by Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi) insist that Veronica dress up like a "sexy Asian schoolgirl"—one who giggles like a Japanese teenage stereotype—in order to impress a group of Chinese investors. Chinese people are mocked and declared untrustworthy. The "Asian men have tiny dicks" stereotype is gleefully deployed. The term "Oriental" is used because…f ...

'Dads' EP Admits Some Jokes Need Tweaking
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The cast and executive producers of "Dads," a new Fox comedy executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, faced quite a few questions about the racist and questionable jokes in the show's pilot. On Thursday, reporters at the Television Critics Association Summer 2013 press tour pressed the cast and crew about the direction and tone of the show, which stars Martin Mull, Peter Riegert, Brenda Song, Vanessa Lachey, Giovanni Ribisi and Seth Green. "In the pilot, we noticed some things we'd like to change or tweak moving forward," executive producer Alec Sulkin said of the episode sent to critics for screening, which has an Asian woman (Song) dressed up in a Sailor Moon-like anime outfit for the lead characters' (Ribisi and Green) potential business clients. "If we missed the mark in the pilot, we're trying to hit it better in upcoming shows." Green noted that many of the best shows in TV history were "provocative" and "offensive." But in an earlier panel, Fox's president of e ...

Giovanni Ribisi Is Heading Back To TV
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Giovanni Ribisi has replaced Tommy Dewey in Fox's multicamera comedy "Dads," Deadline reports. The six-episode series was created by Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, the team behind "Ted" (in which Ribisi also starred). The comedy is centered around Warner (Ribisi) and Eli (Seth Green), two successful men whose lives are thrown into disarray when their high maintenance fathers (played by Martin Mull and Peter Riegert) move in with them. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the role was reimagined after the pilot taping last week, and Ribisi was apparently a better fit than Dewey. The character is described as "co-owner of a successful video game company and a family man with a wife and two young children." The role of Warner's wife was also recast, with Vanessa Lachey taking over from Erin Pineda following the table read. Ribisi's best known TV roles include his stint on "Friends" as Phoebe's kooky brother Frank Jr., and Ralph Mariano on "My Name is ...

"Ted" review: That's one funny, filthy talking bear
Yahoo News - over 4 years
LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Grown-up boys and their childhood toys have been a recurring feature of American comedies lately, from Steve Carrell finally unloading his vintage action figures in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" to Jerry Ferrara's enforced separation from his Voltron collection in "Think Like a Man." Making his big-screen debut as co-writer (with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild) and director, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane takes the idea to an insanely logical extreme in "Ted," a movie about what happens 30 years or so after a kid gets his wish for a talking, living teddy bear. ...

Sarah Silverman Abortion Tweet, Photo: Crossing a Line?
The Hollywood Gossip - almost 5 years
Known for her dirty mouth and extreme views, has Sarah Silverman finally gone too far? Some may believe so. The comedian sent out a Tweet over the weekend that included two photos and a caption. In the first image, she's joined by boyfriend Alec Sulkin and a puffed out belly. In the second, her stomach has returned to its regular size and it's accompanied by the words: “Got a quickie aborsh in cas R v W gets overturned.” Silverman posted the Tweet in response to Mitt Romney becoming the presumptive Republican nominee for President. He referred to Roe vs. Wade last January as "one of the darkest moments in Supreme Court history." What do you think of Silverman's actions? Funny and harmless? Or totally wrong and inappropriate? Did she cross a line?
