Yes, that's really the title.

CBS has picked up "$#*! My Dad Says" for the fall season, using the array of symbols instead of the word "shit" to name the series based off the Twitter sensation.

Shat From a TV blogger standpoint, a title like that gives you a headache just thinking about how many times you're gonna have to try and type it in the months to come.

Other titles the network considered: "Bleep My Dad Says" and "Shat My Dad Says."

UPDATE: CBS announces full fall schedule including "My Dad Says" to air against NBC's Thursday comedies.

The show is based on material by Twitter phenomenon Justin Halpern.

The well-received pilot starred Ryan Devlin ("Cougar Town") as the young lead, based on Halpern, opposite William Shatner as the opinionated father who is the central character. Sitcom veteran James Burrows directed the pilot.
