Rules for dating my teenage daughter cast
The third season finale was not aired for May sweeps.
James Garner and David Spade later joined the main cast as Cate's father and nephew; Jim Egan and C. Barnes, in an attempt to fill the void left by Ritter's death.
Somehow, the cast did a wonderful job of combining the necessary dramatic theme due to Paul Hennessey's death with a continuing positive outlook about "going on" which allowed the series to remain a comedy success. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object.
In 2004, John also received a posthumous Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series".
The second season found the Hennessy's dealing with the loss of their beloved husband and father. In episode #16, "Come and Knock on Our Door", the set of John Ritter's 1977-1984 sitcom, "Three's Company" was rebuilt to the exact same specifications! If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure as heck not picking anything up. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them. I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips.
Cate Hennessey's father (James Garner of "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files fame) joined the cast along with her nephew C. (David Spade of "Saturday Night Live" and "Just Shoot Me"). Paul Hennessy (2002-2003) Katey Sagal .............. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots.
