Scott Baio Has A Home For a New Show On Nick At Nite

Usually good shows go here after they die but Nick At Nite has skipped the network middleman and ordered its very first original scripted comedy pilot, Daddy’s Home starring former Happy Days star Scott Baio. The half hour TV show will center on the life of David Hobbs (played by Baio), and actor who had played America’s favorite television father gives up TV in order to become a stay-at-home dad to honor the deal he made with his soap opera star wife so she’s able to return to the limelight.The project was created by writer-producer Tina Albanese (CSI) and actor Patrick Labyorteaux (Little House On The Prairie), who are executive producing with Baio as well as Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey through their production company Bischoff Hervey Entertainment.

I’m not really sure what to expect from this because it just seems like a bad idea for a television show but I’m holding out hopes it at least gets Baio’s pal Willie Ames some kind of work. TV land has been focusing more on original shows than repeats from yesteryear over the last two years with the success of shows like Hot In Cleveland and Hapily Divorced so maybe it’s the right home for “Chachi “.
