CBS Officially Picks Up “Bleep My Dad Says”

The waiting is over. Save for “Hawaii 5-0” and possibly “Mike and Molly,” “Bleep My Dad Says” was considered the most bankable pilot on CBS’ developmental slate.

The network kept fans and insiders on the edge of their seats for a while, but by Monday afternoon, the news was out–the series, based on the “Sh*t My Dad Says” Twitter,” has been picked up, according to Deadline Hollywood.

William Shatner stars as the titular character; Ryan Devlin co-stars but is reportedly being recast.

With two comedies picked up for next year (“Dad” and “Mike and Molly”), there will likely be room for one more new series–either “Mad Love” (aka “True Love”) or “Livin’ on a Prayer.”
