David Hasselhoff's new father-daughter reality show may have been cancelled after two episodes but that hasn't stopped the single dad from offering up tips for single parents.

In a video posted Monday on AOL, "the Hoff father," as Hoffman referred to himself, provided just two parenting tips. While giving a "Baywatch" worthy performance, Hoffman seemed unaware that the two tips contradicted each other:

Hoff Tip No. 1: Lie

"If you've got two sisters, make sure you lie to them about the other one stealing their clothes. If one girl, steals from the other girl, you say: 'I had no idea, she was doing that.'"

Hoff Tip No. 2: Be Honest

"You have to be honest with the kids. You have to say: 'There are consequences for your action.' Trust me, look what's happened to Dad. When Daddy does good...hmmm...great things happen. When Daddy does bad...hmmm...bad things happen. And then, you end up in the tabloids. Hmmm."

"Finally, just remember: you've got to love your kids," he concluded in the video.

Hoff may love his daughters Taylor Ann and Hayley but audiences weren't so keen on their real-life family drama. A&E pulled the plug on "The Hasselhoffs" earlier this month after the second episode drew only 505,000 viewers, about 200,000 less than the premiere.

The show followed the "Baywatch" star and former "America's Got Talent" judge as he guided his daughter's fledgling music careers. Hoff had two hit records in Germany at the end of the 80s.

Before the show aired, he told People magazine in January, "My goal is to be a good dad to my daughters, to stay healthy and to go out there and be a performer," adding, "this show is going to be like Fame because my house is crazy."

Though it's been years since Hoffman has had a hit show, he still remains wildly popular. Earlier this year, the 58-year-old actor was the victim of a Comedy Central roast. Few subjects were off limits, including Hoff's infamous cheeseburger video, which features him shirtless, in a drunken stupor, struggling to eat a Wendy's cheeseburger off his hotel room floor.

The Joke's on David Hasselfhoff

"How do you make jokes about a joke? How do you embarrass a man who so thoroughly embarrasses himself?" comedian Seth MacFarlane, the roast host, said in his opening salvo. "How do you put someone down when they are already lying shirtless on the floor?"

Hoff's "Baywatch" co-star Pamela Anderson, a vegan and animal rights' activist, piped up to pile on the insults.

"David, I have to say, when I saw the video of you lying on the floor -- drunk, broken down, cheeseburger meat falling from your mouth -- I felt so sad," said Anderson. "For that cow."

Until now, Hasselhoff has said little about the 2007 video shot by his daughter Taylor Ann and later posted on the Internet, or his reported alcohol relapses.

After the video went viral with more than one billion views, he announced in a statement: "I am a recovering alcoholic."

His drinking problem was reportedly the reason NBC's "America's Got Talent" failed to renew his contract in January after he served four years as a judge. He was replaced with comedian Howie Mandel. Hasselhoff's rep maintains that the actor left "America's Got Talent" to pursue his own reality show.

Last year after Hasselhoff was treated at a local hospital, his attorney Mel Goldsman told ABCNews.com, "He's a recovering alcoholic, but he's really been doing great."
