Directors of Playmaker Media, David Taylor and David Maher, said: “We are thrilled that House Husbands will be back on the Nine Network in 2014 for a third series.

    Nothing cringeworthy or embarrassing about House Husbands. It has a great cast and some really good story lines. It’s a great Aussie drama.

    House Husbands has to be the most embarissingly cringeworthy show to be renewed on Australian television. When I saw an ad with the four dads pushing prams down the street together, I thought do these people really exist. Banal crap, and if 9 thinks this show appeals to men, they’re dreaming.

    Don’t know why everybody’s bagging it out, it’s a great show and deserved the Logie award. I for one am glad it has been renewed.

    Its a bit like Neighbours that way. I watch it while on facebook or while cooking. It’s light entertainment. Not exactly smart, thought provoking melodrama (a la A Place to Call Home).

    Well done to the entire team for House Husbands!
    It is good for the Aussie industry! Whether you like the show or not, it is scripted entertainment that emits caters, writers and crew!
    It might not be the most deep and dramatic, but I like it for the light hearted entertainment!

    The only incredible thing here is how Australian television audiences can latch onto such crap……..

    Let’s hope they have the intelligence to call the Emergency Dept at the hospital just that. Not “Accident & Emergency” It’s not called that in Australia. That is a British term. Unless, of course, it’s deliberate to try to help sell the series into the UK.

    Without jumping on the ‘hate’ band wagon. I do agree that the quality of the episodes has never been overly high, but I do watch it for light entertainment.

    “Nine’s incredible slate of drama” Bahahahahaha! Funniest thing i’ve read in a while.

    How is this possible? The writers have used up every cliche in the Big Book Of Screenwriting Cliches. Oh, hang on, they still haven’t done the episode where a character gets hit by lightning and loses his memory, thereby leading to all sorts of high-jinks and misunderstandings.
