Eight simple rules for dating my teenage daughter episodes
8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter was a 30 minute comedy series on ABC that began as the typical mom, dad, and kids sitcom which followed the often comical trial and tribulations of family relationships and also followed the individuals into their separate lives and friendships. Prior to episode #35, "What Dad Would Want", the series had been titled, "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter".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.
Somehow, the cast did a wonderful job of combining the necessary dramatic theme due to Paul Hennessey's death with a continuing positive outlook about "going on" which allowed the series to remain a comedy success. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object.
In 2004, John also received a posthumous Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series".
