Cast of 8 simple rules for dating
It's a time for healing and learning to deal with life without family patriarch Paul (the late John Ritter), as the Hennessys discover the frailties of life and the strength of the family unit, on 8 Simple Rules.
Cate (Katey Sagal) now finds herself in the precarious position of raising three teenagers on her own while holding down a full time job as a hospital nurse near their Detroit-area home.
Dating boys and fitting in with their peers will once again become a top priority for the girls.
But no matter what, Cate will continue to enforce Paul's number one rule - "If you make my daughters cry, I'll make you cry." In Memory Of John Ritter (1948-2003).
After entering a hiatus, the series continued without Ritter, incorporating the death of his character.
Widowed mom Cate Hennessy raises three teens in this sitcom, which shifted focus in 2003 following the sudden death of its star, John Ritter, just before the start of its second season.

(David Spade), moves in and finds it hard to resist getting himself into trouble or offering questionable advice to the kids.Now more than ever, Cate needs to be there for her kids - particularly her daughters.She does, however, get a little relief, thanks to her father, Jim (James Garner), who's been staying at the house since Paul's death.
