The tweets beget the book which beget the television show. Tonight, CBS premieres '$#*! My Dad Says,' starring the legendary William Shatner as the Dad. The quirky actor engaged in a spit-fire convo with PopEater, rattling off sometimes-wacky answers to questions about the new show, 'Star Trek' fanatics (they're not going to be happy) and the best part ... his plans for a new album.

Tell me about the show, and may I say, you're genius in it.
It's very funny and the cast is fabulous. And yes, I am a genius in it! The most exciting part of the show are the writers and the producers. They are so good -- led by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.
