The Real Family Guy: Why Gaffigan Just Quit TV

They call it his “dad brand.” True, Jim Gaffigan makes a living cracking jokes about marriage and parenting (and Hot Pockets). But earlier this year, Gaffigan proved his dad image isn’t just for TV cameras. He and his wife, Jeannie, put the kibosh on a third season of TV Land’s The Jim Gaffigan Show.
