  • Starring: Kaley Cuoco, David Spade, Katey Sagal
  • Summary: Based on the book by W. Bruce Cameron, this ABC family comedy originally starred John Ritter and Katey Sagal as the parents of three kids: the beautiful but dim-witted teen Bridget (Kaley Cuoco), her younger sister Kerry (Amy Davidson), who is smart but naive, and their kid brother Rory (Martin Spanjers), who prefers to get his sisters in trouble. Ritter died shortly into this second season; after a hiatus, he was replaced by James Garner and David Spade, who became regulars for the remainder of the series. Expand

    John Ritter's death last September left a huge hole at the center of this sitcom. ABC chose to prop it up rather than shut it down, a decision that's looking increasingly unfortunate.

    It is very funny and charming despite the of course extremely annoying Dad character. But this is a very good edition to television. And of course it won't be remembered. Expand
