8 simple rules for dating my teenage daughter season 3
slot would be devoted to family-friendly programming. shows such as "The Drew Carey Show", "My Wife & Kids", and "America's Funniest Home Videos" were joined by two newcomers: sitcom "8 Simple Rules" and the reality show "Extreme Makeover." The "Happy Hour" concept did not last long, as the following season saw gritty anti-terrorist drama "Threat Matrix" and newsmagazine "Primetime" claiming the first hour of certain nights.
But "8 Simple Rules" had some staying power, and would remain on ABC's schedule for three seasons.
Cate is a far cry from Peg Bundy, so seeing Katey Sagal as a nice mom is a pleasant surprise.
Paul's three children also fall into a tradition of sitcom stereotypes.
What separates Rory from his sisters aside from gender is that he isn't so easily embarrassed by his father's presence, and there is a natural "hero worship" that the son holds for his dad.
While the two sisters share a room, they regularly are at odds with each other and their father, with Kerry offering biting sarcasm and Bridget trying to talk her way out of punishment.
The resultant Re Tool brought in Cate's cantankerous father Jim (James Garner) and slacker nephew C. The rating also took a plunge shortly after episodes dealing with Paul's death and it was cancelled within two years. I've got a very important announcement for the whole family.
The series aired on ABC from September 2002 to April 2005, a total of 76 episodes in 3 seasons.
Stuck as the second banana to his sisters, youngest son Rory (Martin Spanjers) sees the least amount of airtime and is relegated to silly little escapades like buying a surfboard (they live in Michigan) or secretly keeping a monkey/snake/rat as a pet.
That and hiding in his sisters' closet, then reporting what he hears to Paul.
