Watch 8 simple rules dating my teenage daughter online
Rory is the only son, youngest child, and doesn't seem to have a life outside video games, and pestering his sisters.Unlike many other shows with annoying siblings, he's more funny than he is annoying.
See more » The opening sequence of the first season featured Kerry, Kate, Bridget and Paul each looking at Bridget's or Kerry's new date one at a time (the scene is viewed from the latter's perspective), the camera panning down to the doormat with the show's title, and finally Rory taunting the date.This show is somewhat similar to My Wife and Kids, except that the stories are more centered on teenage issues (dating, school, etc.) Bridget is the oldest child, the one who often dates Kyle, and despite the on-going "shallow teenage daughter" stereotype, she's pretty funny.Kerry is the slightly younger daughter, who's not very popular, but is a great artist.The third season (after Ritter's death) took a creative turn, revolving more around cousin C. (David Spade) and grandfather Jim (James Garner), than the immediate Hennessy family, more specifically not revolving around the raising of the Hennessy girls.After the novelty of newly added ensemble characters wore off, the series returned to its original format.His wife, Cate, now a single mother, is still with a full time job at the hospital and still tries to raise her three kids: Bridget, Kerry, and Rory.
Luckily for Cate, her father Jim and her crazy nephew C. have decided to stay at her home and help her raise her children.
Paul is the over-protective dad, and Cate is the liberal mom.
All of these five personalities put together creates another fantastic family comedy.
The series ran on ABC from September 17, 2002 to April 15, 2005.
The first season focused on Paul being left in charge of the kids after Cate takes a full-time job as a nurse, with comedic emphasis on his often strict rules concerning his daughters and dating.
8 Simple Rules (originally 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter for the first season) is an American sitcom, originally starring John Ritter and Katey Sagal as middle-class parents Paul and Cate Hennessy raising a family of three.
