This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget.Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. Katey Sagal hosted the final episodes featuring John and as a further tribute to his memory, the very first episode without him, "Goodbye - Parts 1 & 2" were filmed without laugh tracks or a studio audience. He had completed filming of the first three episodes of the second season before his untimely death at 55 years of age.The series' creator and show-runner, Tracy Gamble, left the series for a time over creative differences prior to the third season, but he later returned as a consulting producer midway through the third season. Even before the third season finale's airing, rumors began circulating that 8 Simple Rules was facing cancellation due to Ritter's death and poor ratings.
Then John Ritter ("Three's Company" and "Three's a Crowd") passed away suddenly. Due to Ritter's passing, the title was shortened to "8 Simple Rules". You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck.
The second season found the Hennessy's dealing with the loss of their beloved husband and father. In episode #16, "Come and Knock on Our Door", the set of John Ritter's 1977-1984 sitcom, "Three's Company" was rebuilt to the exact same specifications!

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips.

Paul Hennessy (2002-2003) Katey Sagal .............. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots.
ABC canceled the series on May 17, 2005 after three seasons due to low ratings.
The show's premise and title were derived from the book 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter: And other tips from a beleaguered father (not that any of them work) by W. The third season (after Ritter's death) took a creative turn, revolving more around cousin C. (David Spade) and grandfather Jim (James Garner), than the immediate Hennessy family, more specifically not revolving around the raising of the Hennessy girls.
