During her 7 a.m. newscast, Tracy Burgess had a list of America’s Favorite Televison Dads of all-time, courtesy of Harris Interactive. Mr. “Jello Pudding Pop” himself, Bill Cosby, for his portrayal of Cliff Huxtable on “The Cosby Show” topped the list, followed by Ward Cleaver (“Leave it to Beaver”) and Jim Anderson (“Father Knows Best”).

The story initiated a spirited discussion about other great TV Dad’s and some obvious exclusions from the list…
