Simple rules for dating my teenage daughter episode guide
8 Simple Rules is about an American married couple with three children and is set in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan.
The father, Paul Hennessy (John Ritter), was a sportswriter who is prompted by his wife Cate's (Katey Sagal) return to nursing to take a more active role in raising their two teenage daughters, Bridget (Kaley Cuoco), and Kerry (Amy Davidson), and son Rory (Martin Spanjers).
But "8 Simple Rules" had some staying power, and would remain on ABC's schedule for three seasons.
The family sitcom easily adhered to a familiar formula: two parents simply attempt to keep their home civilized despite having teenage children under their roof.
His ineptitude is often his undoing, and his need to be both father and friend leads to a strained relationship with his children.
The show starred John Ritter until his death on September 11, 2003.Paul's three children also fall into a tradition of sitcom stereotypes.Bridget (Kaley Cuoco) is the popular and fast-talking oldest daughter and Kerry (Amy Davidson) is the moody and environmentalist middle child.Usually, he'll falter due to his own shortcomings and ends up learning a lesson about himself or his children.At Paul's side is his wife Cate (Katey Sagal), who is returning to work after years as a housewife and mother.
