Who's Your Daddy?

The popular 1990s slang phrase "who's your daddy?" eventually appeared in everything from movies to a country music song by Toby Keith. That didn't help a 2005 reality show on Fox called Who's Your Daddy?, which was canceled after one episode. The show took a woman who had been adopted as an infant and placed her in a room with eight men, one of whom was her biological father. If she chose the correct man as her father, they would win a big cash prize; if she chose the wrong man, the money would go to him instead. The show was blasted by adoption rights organizations, so Fox decided not to broadcast the other five episodes that had been produced.
