    Derek Theler of Baby Daddy is very possibly the best looking man ever created.

  • Rave Mystery

    I love this show and hope it continues.

  • Jared

    I really love both shows. Happy to see that both of them have already been renewed for another season.

  • Tony JJ

    Both shows have has their best seasons this summer. The are both great but need to get their ratings back on track next summer. Maybe a new third comedy would add some interest to new viewers.

    Last I checked, getting an 0.4/0.5 rating with only 700,000+ viewers is not considered to be all that good. But glad to know Baby Daddy will at least be staying on the air for a little while longer.
