Scott Baio to play a dad in new Nick at Nite sitcom
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."
Are you looking forward to Baio's new Nick at Nite show?

This is a guy that used to bang Pamela Anderson and his dick didn't fall off. I say he deserves success.
Are his eyes buggy because of all the smack he did?
I wonder if he still loves Joanie?
Thanks for the info Exlooker. How did you confim that he is not gay?
Yes n im still gay
wow every1 is havin der name stolen.even my name is bein stolen.
Dumb dumb b lo me is not gay and sunshine girl never met up with him. b lo me n sunshine gal were being trolled.
Sunshine Girl* I am shocked @ u! Please can u contact me and c if we can get a show going? I will try n get in touch with Scott also. Thank u in advance for kindness. Sincerely, Jerry Springer
Omg! @B lo me, you are just wrong.
I heard he is gay. Can anyone confirm? I'd hit that.
I love Scott Baio. He will be great!
I had the opportunity to engage in sixual relations with scott in 1989. He was a wildcat.i
oh you must have been at the Roxbury upstairs...for that... or at bar one on sunset playing pool...cuz that's where he always was... i think he looks great and will enjoy another good run with his show... @b lo me... he is NOT gay
I thought he went to jail with the "Different Strokes" kids.
YES; I love Chachi!! However, only people who grew up on Happy Days can appreciate him or perhaps, maybe but probably not Charles in Charge. That show was way past me but I loved Happy Days and I loved Scott Baio. I wish him much luck and best wishes 🙂
He was an annoying goof of a character in the waning years of Happy Days. DON'T bring him back.
Fortunately, I've never had occasion to watch a Scott Baio show before, but he seems to have an edge to his personality now and it might be interesting to see how that translates to a modern comedy. I wish him luck with his network and writers.
Im dropping a boom boom in my underpants.
he's there just to take good care of me, like he's one of the family
CHARLES IN CHARGE OF OUR DAYS AND OUR NIGHTS.... CHARLES IN CHARGE OF OUR WRONGS AND OUR RIGHTS!
and I sing I want, I want, Charles in charge of me!
Please "be quiet" and take your own advise. Don't be rude
