The article focuses on a poll that asked people age 45-59 to pick their favorite television-show father. When the poll's respondents were asked to cite the emotion they feel most strongly toward their own fathers, love edged out respect, 41 percent to 35 percent. Boomers don't necessarily view the old man as a font of wisdom about parenting: 28 percent said they look to their fathers for advice about raising their own children, while 40 percent, said they turn to their mothers for such counsel.
