Based on the popular and profanely titled Twitter feed, the show may be pronounced Bleep My Dad Says, but star William Shatner doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. ”It isn’t Defecation My Father Says,” says the actor. ”It’s the cool jazz vernacular of ‘I’ve gotta get my s– together.’ I mean, would it be better to say Doo-doo My Daddy Says?” Probably not. In July, CBS recast the role of Shatner’s unemployed son: Out went Ryan Devlin, in came Jonathan Sadowski (2009’s Friday the 13th) and a new pilot more focused on the son and Shatner’s set-in-his-ways father. ”You know this guy,” says exec producer David Kohan (Will & Grace) of Shatner’s war-vet papa. ”Not because he’s vulgar, [but] because he speaks the unvarnished truth and doesn’t care.” SEPT. 23
