So… when you get home tonight and plan out the rest of this week’s DVR activities (if you haven’t already) you’ll likely get to Thursday night at 8:30… think to yourself “I really want to check out that new William Shatner comedy – Shit my Dad says – based on that hilarious twitter account”… but then hit a snag.  I can say shit… you can say shit… but network TV can’t.  Ummmm, how am I supposed to schedule my DVR if I don’t know what the show is actually called?

Well, it took until the week of… but CBS finally decided to comment on this growing issue.  Here’s what they said:

Dear Valued Viewer,

We have a new show premiering this Thursday at 8:30 PM, ET/PT, called $#*! MY DAD SAYS. It’s a unique title for a unique show based on a very popular Twitter feed. In fact, the title of the show is so sophisticated that it’s perplexing some DVR search functions that can’t read some symbols.

Obviously, our first choice is that you always watch everything on CBS live; however, we also consider the DVR our friend, providing more opportunities for you to watch our programs amidst your very busy lives.

If you’d like to record $#*! MY DAD SAYS from your DVR, we recommend activating the “record” function by going directly through the program guide on your cable or satellite system. Our research shows most viewers record in this method; but, if you’re one of the few who have had issues with the DVR search function for this show, this alternative offers an easy solution.

$#*! MY DAD SAYS premieres this Thursday, Sept. 23 at 8:30 PM, ET/PT, immediately following THE BIG BANG THEORY (which has no search function issues whatsoever).

Warmest regards,


Okay?  Thanks CBS?
