April 18, 2014 at 2:13 PM ET

Video: Actor Alan Thicke and his wife, Tanya, share their thoughts on how Thicke’s role as Dr. Jason Seaver on the classic sitcom “Growing Pains” measures up against a few of America’s other favorite TV dads (including Homer Simpson).

In the saturated world of sitcom dads, actor Alan Thicke thinks one stands out above the rest — and it just so happens to be his former "Growing Pains" character Jason Seaver.

Thicke and his wife Tanya Callou, stars of the new reality show "Unusually Thicke," stopped by the Orange Room and played a round of Versus, weighing in on who they believe is the top dog when it comes to TV dads.

ROUND THREE: JASON SEAVER vs. CLIFF HUXTABLE ("The Cosby Show")

Alan Thicke: Bill paved the way for sitcom dads to come back. Sitcom dads since "Ozzie and Harriet" were dead for a while. Nobody was going to bet on a sitcom, then all of a sudden Cosby comes back with a show and paved the way for the rest of us. God bless you.

WINNER: CLIFF HUXTABLE

FINAL SCORE: JASON SEAVER WINS, 2-1
