Seth MacFarlane's Fox Sitcom Dads Gets Its First Trailer

Here's one for the Seth MacFarlane fans. Or Seth Green fans. (Or both). Fox may not offer much in the way of multi-camera comedies these days, but the network has no shortage of MacFarlane. So it should be interesting to see how Dads does on Tuesday nights, paired with fellow newcomer Brooklyn Nine-Nine. As the trailer reveals, this new comedy, which comes from Ted team Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, focuses on the relationship two guys have with their fathers.

Eli (Seth Green) and Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) are two childhood friends, now in their thirties and running a successful video game company, though the two are very different in personality and lifestyle. Warner's married with kids, Eli's been stoned since college. But they two presumably have a solid working relationship, not to mention a history of close friendship, which is almost like a marriage. Their lives are thrown for a loop when their fathers, played by Martin Mull and Peter Riegert, move in with them.

The jury's out for me on this one. On one hand, I love Seth Green, Giovani Ribisi and Brenda Song, and I loved Ted. On the other hand, I'm not sold by the trailer, so I'm reserving full judgment until I see the pilot. MacFarlane certainly has an audience at Fox, so it'll be interesting to see how this one does when it airs on Tuesday nights on Fox this fall.
