Status: Partially Found

Daddio was a sitcom from 2000 starring Michael Chiklis (most famous for roles in The Shield, The Commish and as The Thing in the 2000s Fantastic Four films) as a stay-at-home father who got into comedic shenanigans whilst taking care of his family.

The show aired from March 23rd to October 23rd in the year 2000, and suffered from critical ire and low audience ratings in the US. While the first season was broadcast in full, the second season was only into its fourth episode before being abruptly taken off the airwaves by NBC, leaving nine episodes unaired.

Disney-ABC acted as distributors internationally. Daddio was aired late at night on the UK Disney Channel circa 2003,[1] and was also broadcast in France and in Sweden.[2]

There have been no known home media releases, and the only videos available on YouTube are promos and interstitial materials.
