Keep your eyes peeled for awesome dads on the small screen - we have plenty.

Funny dad

Father of three Martin Lawrence brings on the funny on Martin, weekdays at 20:15 on BET.

Cool dad

Kanye West is our definition of a cool father. He's stylish and he's got swag for days. See him in Keeping up with the Kardashians on Sundays at 20:00 on E! Entertainment. 

Chris Hemsworth also falls into this category as he is just lovely to look at and hanging out with him would be so cool. See this cool cat in Rush on DStv Now

DIY dad

So you know those fathers who make you feel protected and can fix just about anything around the house? Cue Liam Neeson (Taken 3 on Sunday 19 June at 18:10 on M-Net Movies Action Plus) or Terrence Howard (See him double bills of Empire Saturdays from 19:20 on FOX​). 

Kichen-savvy dad

Imagine having a dad that makes thee most amazing meals. Guy Fiery from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (weekdays at 23:30 on Food Network)  and, of course, Gordon Ramsey (Hell's Kitchen USA Mondays at 20:00 on BBC Lifestyle) fit the bill for this one.
