The BEST Episodes of Titus

Every episode ever - ranked by fan votes!

Last Updated: Jun 23, 2020

Network: FOX

This half-hour comedy chronicles the hilarious world of Christopher Titus and his totally messed-up poor white trash family. Between his drunken father, his dimwitted brother, and his goody-goody best friend, it's amazing Titus is alive, let alone engaged to a "normal" girl. Titus adapted Christopher Titus' stand-up routine in a novel way: each episode is narrated by Titus from a black & white "Neutral Space," from which he comments on the events as they unfold, punctuated by short, surreal flashbacks to his childhood and adolescence. The hilarious interplay between these three levels of narrative is sometimes amazingly complex and even contradictory, highlighting the exceedingly black nature of the show's humor.

Dave and Titus panic when they realize their dad, Ken, hasn't come out of the bedroom in four days, not even to get a beer. They dare each other to go into the bedroom and make sure...but neither one wants to discover the body. Soon Erin arrives--just a little peeved that she took the message "Dad's dead" to mean her own dad. As a result, she rushed to her parents' house, only to catch them having sex! Erin's stunned to hear that Ken's dead, but she's also too chicken to actually investigate. Meanwhile, Titus and Dave reflect on their old man's parenting skills, or lack thereof. Ken never missed a beer or a babe, but he also never missed a little league game or a school function. Erin remembers that Ken recently gave her his will. Could it have been a planned suicide? Terminal illness? They obsess over the possibilities until Tommy arrives. He's visibly shaken and equipped with comfort food. The foursome eat their cake and reminisce. Titus and Dave even role-play, poking fun at Ken's gruff nature. They all have a big laugh until Ken strolls out in his bathroom, pops open a beer and tells them all to keep it down--he's trying to sleep.

Season 1 - Episode 9 - Aired May 22, 2000

Some people share a family talent, like cooking or singing. The Titus family talent is heart attacks. Ken has had three, so when he has another one and crashes his car, no one is too shocked. The shock comes later, when Tommy tells Christopher that his dad blames him. Long story short: Ken couldn't start his boat because Chris and Dave took the distributor cap; Ken got upset; hence the heart attack. Christopher refuses to take the blame and confronts his dad about the excessive alcohol and cigarette use that perhaps had more to do with his bad ticker. Suddenly, Ken's monitor flatlines! But Ken is fine: it was the guy in the other bed who died. Titus feels horrible and offers to give his dad his cherry '56 Chevy to make up for the car accident. Later, while talking to an officer about the accident, the cop offers photos taken when Ken ran the red light — photos that clearly show him engaged in a sex act with a woman in the front seat! Titus, Dave and Erin enact their revenge by ordering
