[via press release from FOX]


Next All-New Episode Airs Tuesday, November 5, on FOX

FOX has picked up nine additional episodes of DADS, bringing the series to a 22-episode order, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

"FOX has been looking to break into the multi-camera format for some time," said Reilly. "With DADS, we have an asset that we can grow, and we're looking forward to seeing where the fantastic cast and the creative minds of Seth, Alec, Mike and Wellesley take us the rest of the season."

DADS ranks as one of the Top 10 new series among Men 18-34 and one of the Top 10 new comedies among Men 18-49 and Women 18-34. Across the first three telecasts for which Nielsen Live +7 data is available, DADS is averaging a 2.2/7 rating among Adults 18-49. In fact, in the first 30 days of its debut, the DADS premiere episode has already drawn more than 14.7 million views across Live, time shifted DVR and Video on Demand viewing and streaming on Fox.com and Hulu.com.

In the next all-new episode, "Foul Play," airing Tuesday, Nov. 5 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Eli (Seth Green) and David (Peter Riegert) are forced to sleep at the Ghost Child Games offices when bedbugs overtake the loft. Meanwhile, Camila (Vanessa Lachey) gets the lead in a local theater production, and Crawford (Martin Mull) ends up being uncharacteristically helpful, much to the chagrin of Warner (Giovanni Ribisi).

Executive-produced by Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild (FAMILY GUY, "Ted"), DADS follows two successful guys - and childhood best friends - now in their mid-30s, whose relatively stable lives get turned upside down when their inappropriate, pain-in-the-neck patriarchs move in and overtake their home and work lives.

DADS is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Fuzzy Door Productions. The series is created and written by Emmy Award-nominated writer/producers Alec Sulkin ("Ted," FAMILY GUY) and Wellesley Wild ("Ted," FAMILY GUY). Seth MacFarlane ("Ted," FAMILY GUY), Mike Scully (THE SIMPSONS), Sulkin and Wild are executive producers. Marc Cendrowski ("The Big Bang Theory") directed the pilot.
