The Top TV Dads in Each State

Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, so the website put together a list of the most popular TV DADS in every state, using recent data from Google Trends.

29 different TV dads are represented, so a lot of them only carried one state.

Overall, the most popular dad was Jack Pearson from “This Is Us”.  He was #1 in six states:  Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.

Five states . . . Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Texas . . . have a thing for goth dads, because they love Gomez Addams from “The Addams Family”.

Two dads carried four states.  David Nolan (a.k.a. Prince Charming) from “Once Upon a Time” was the top dad in Alaska, Idaho, Kentucky, and South Carolina . . .

And Homer from “The Simpsons” was #1 in Colorado, Illinois, Oregon, and Washington.

(Is it a coincidence that three of those states are among the eight where recreational marijuana is legal?)

Joe West from “The Flash” was #1 in three states:  Hawaii, Kansas, and New Jersey.

The dads that got TWO states are:  George from “The Jeffersons”, Carl Winslow from “Family Matters”, Richard Gilmore from “Gilmore Girls”, Ward Cleaver from “Leave It to Beaver”, and Steven Keaton from “Family Ties”.

And there were a couple stereotypical results . . . like Ben Cartwright from “Bonanza” being #1 in Nevada, and New Mexico going with Walter White from “Breaking Bad”.
