Paul Hennessy, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter
John Ritter died in the midst of shooting the second season for ABC’S 8 Simple Rules, which also featured a babyfaced Kaley Cuoco. Producers decided to write Ritter’s death into the script, killing off his character Paul Hennessy and adding James Garner and David Spade to the cast. But sagging ratings led to its cancellation after the third season.
