Scott Baio returns to prime time TV

Scott Baio is returning to prime time TV with his new sitcom “See Dad Run” on Nick at Nite.

Baio plays an actor who decides to stay at home and take care of his kids when his long running sitcom – playing “America’s favorite dad” –  gets cancelled and his wife goes back to work.

Says Baio:   “There’s nothing new
under the sun. No new ideas,” Baio said. “This is an idea that’s not
particularly original, but it’s fun and it’s funny.”
What makes “See Dad Run”
different, Baio said, is the fact that “it’s a story about a guy who is
not an idiot like a lot of TV dads are. He’s just … playing catch up
(after playing a dad on TV for 10 years), and he’ll never really get
there because nobody every really gets there.”
This is Baio’s first run at TV since his two VH1 reality shows.
