at . Comments

We've got single dads, traditional dads, double the dads, even vampire dads. Check out our list of the best dads of the 2013-2014 TV season.

1. Rick Castle (Castle)

Rick Castle (Castle)
Castle is our #1 single dad on the list. He single handedly raised daughter Alexis and even when she turned on him early in season six in a fit of young love (remember Pi?) and growing pains, he only gave back unconditional love.

2. Phil Dunphy (Modern Family)

Phil Dunphy (Modern Family)
Phil is probably the most traditional dad on the list. Whether he's teaching Luke the importance of magic, trying to bond with super smart Alex or scrambling to keep up with Haley's latest endeavor, Phil is goofy, fun, and loves his children beyond reason.

3. Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother)

Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother)
The career womanizer believed that true love didn't exist, until he met his baby daughter Ellie. "You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours. Forever."

4. Seely Booth (Bones)

Seely Booth (Bones)
After growing up with an abusive father, Seeley Booth revels in being a good dad to daughter Christine and son Parker.

5. Frank Reagan (Blue Bloods)

Frank Reagan (Blue Bloods)
Even though his kids are all grown up, Frank Reagan never fails to be there for them with advice, guidance and occasional tough love.

6. Jack Porter (Revenge)

Jack Porter (Revenge)
Yes, Jack may have a lot of babysitters but that's what happens when you're a single parent running a bar. No one can refute that Jack loves little Carl and takes his role as parent and protector seriously, especially since Amanda's death.

Booth is great, so is Castle. But the best *foster father* is Leroy Jethro Gibbs, without a doubt.

Castle Quotes

Castle: The fact that you even think that breaks my heart. I would walk into a tornado for you, Kate.
Beckett: And I would die if I lost you.

Sometimes the hardest things in life are the things most worth doing.
