Happy days are here again for Scott Baio. The artist formerly known as Chachi is set to return to TV in Nick at Nite's first original sitcom, reports Deadline.
"Daddy's Home" will feature Baio as actor David Hobbs, who, after 10 years of playing a beloved TV dad, makes good on a deal with his wife to give up his career and raise their three young children so she can resume her soap opera career.
"I've been wanting to do a kids show," Baio tweeted on Friday.
Baio's last long-running sitcom was the 1984-1990 cult classic "Charles in Charge." More recently, he starred in the VH1 reality series "Scott Baio Is 45… and Single" and "Scott Baio Is 46… and Pregnant."
