Worst TV Show Ever Produced
29 April 1999 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews



Hey Dad would have to be the worst TV show in the Universe. I am still trying to figure out why it ran for some long. Put it this way, I've laughed more in just one episode of Different Strokes than I have in the entire series of Hey Dad.
