Tweets Included in New CBS Sitcom, ‘Bleep My Dad Says’

May 19, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Several of the tweets from Twitter stream "Bleep My Dad Says" are included in the pilot of the CBS show based on the sayings of a profane 74-year old father — albeit rewritten to be family friendly, reports the New York Times

Twenty-nine year old Justin Halpern created a Twitter page in August to report the often profane sayings of his dad, a 74-year old retired doctor. After breaking up with his girlfriend a year ago, he moved back in with his parents to save money. But he wasn’t on skid row, because he had a job as a senior writer for the web site of Maxim magazine.

After starting the Twitter feed, it caught on when actor Rob Corddry tweeted about it. While most of the 119 tweets aren’t repeatable on broadcast television, the pilot episode includes about four or five of them, although slightly edited.

The younger Halpern has since moved back in with his girlfriend, although returns home a couple times a week because he said he likes hearing what his dad says.

  1. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
