1: Use your hands on my daughter and you'll lose them after.

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).

The third season finale was not aired for May sweeps.

The finale received a 3.9/8 rating share which gave ABC a third place finish behind NBC's Dateline (5.8/11) and CBS' Joan of Arcadia (4.9/10), which starred Ritter's son, Jason Ritter.

Subsequent episodes dealt with the family's reaction to his death and them moving on from it.

The first four post-Ritter episodes were shot without a live audience with James Garner and Suzanne Pleshette guest-starred as Cate's strict parents and David Spade guest-starred as Cate's wayward nephew, C. Garner and Spade later received starring roles as Ritter's replacement for the rest of the show's broadcast.

The rules are: The third season took a creative turn, revolving more around cousin C. and Jim, the grandfather, than the immediate Hennessy family, more specifically not revolving around the raising of the Hennessy girls.

After entering a hiatus, the series continued without Ritter, incorporating the death of his character.

James Garner and David Spade joined the cast afterward.

After the novelty of newly added ensemble characters wore off, the series returned to its original format.
