Playing John Stamos Declares the Death of Network Television After 'Grandfathered' Gets Canceled

John Stamos had a pretty funny response to Fox canceling his sitcom, Grandfathered, after one season.

The 52-year-old actor -- who portrayed a bachelor who discovers he's a dad and a grandfather -- first posted a pic on Instagram of himself in Italy and referenced a famous quote that used to be said when a NFL player won the Super Bowl. Stamos joked: "Hey John Stamos! Fox just cancelled your television show, what are you going to do next...."

The Fuller House star went on to thank the cast and crew he worked with on the show. "Proud of Grandfathered. A show that makes you feel good and brings the entire family together," he tweeted. "The kind of TV I love and will continue to create."

Stamos also took a little dig at Fox, writing: "And now, let us take a moment of silence for network television."

Josh Peck, who played Stamos' long lost son on the sitcom, also tweeted his appreciation for the series. "Thank you for watching and supporting Grandfathered," he wrote. "I'm sorry it's over but I feel lucky to have been a part of it!"

Stamos' love interest and Peck's mother on Grandfathered, Paget Brewster, also made light of the cancellation. "Makes me sad, too. Thanks for the support everybody. I'm gonna get stinko and sear some scallops," Brewster tweeted. "That's right ! Grandfathered is cancelled but I'm still a citizen of #BachelorNation!"

Grandfathered had a few pretty great cameos, and ET was there when Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora danced with Stamos on set. Check it out:
