Earlier this year Nickelodeon announced that they’ve ordered 20 episodes of a series produced and starring Baio called Daddy’s Home for Nick-at-Nite. One of the lessons that Andrew Breitbart taught me was the importance of supporting our people and the importance of pop culture. Often conservatives respond to the culture wars by starting their own movies, magazines or networks. While there have been good efforts on those fronts, we should also be working to support conservatives already inside the industry. I’ll be watching “Daddy’s Home.” I hope you will, too!

Each week the De Pasquale's Dozen asks political figures and free market-minded writers and entertainers to take a break from politics and talk about their pop culture obsessions.
