I love you guys," Davidson, 35, captioned via Instagram. More than 20 million tuned in for the Hennessys' laugh-free return last week, making it a rare success in a lackluster November. The tears and mourning blurred the line between the characters' feelings and the cast's true emotions, creating an hour that felt tragically, realistically heartrending.The episode, which wasn't available for critics to review last week, brought home the random, stupefying nature of death as the cast and characters addressed this new gap in their lives.James Garner's entry as Jim, Cate's dad, provided a rock-steady, somewhat grizzled counterpoint to the occasional outbursts of adolescent rage. Perhaps a solution will be to incorporate Garner's grumpy old man into the mix, but he's more grump than cornball.And all speech became dumb, pointless, yet kind, as characters struggled to say and do the right thing, in a situation for which there is no foolproof emotional etiquette. Ritter was clearly the hub of "8 Simple Rules' " humor, and if Sagal takes up some of his paternal quirks for the sake of wringing out a few laughs, viewers might not buy it.In the midst of last week's storm surrounding CBS and "The Reagans," you may have missed something sweet and lovely that happened over on ABC.On Tuesday night, the cast, producers and writers of "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter" took their tragic loss of a co-star and friend and, in a nod to moving on, created honest, wonderful television. Considering the way television can bungle these things, the sitcom's return without John Ritter, whose sudden death of an aortic dissection in September shocked so many, could have been a lot worse.
The trio played siblings on the ABC comedy from 2002 to 2005. On the other hand, "Jake 2.0" has been picked up for a full season. Griffith hosts alongside Don Knotts , Ron Howard and Jim Nabors . CNBC's "The News With Brian Williams" is losing Brian Williams in January.Williams, who is due to take over as anchor of the " NBC Nightly News " in November 2004, will relinquish his role at the helm of the low-rated cable news show, NBC announced yesterday.The show starred John Ritter, Katey Sagal, Kaley Cuoco, Amy Davidson, Martin Spanjers, James Garner, and David Spade. This hit comedy series is based on a very odd family who fight a lot but at the end of the episode they are all drawn together.
