Re: weekly television news
After the death of John Ritter, it remained in doubt what would happen with the late actor’s hit series “8 Simple Rules for my Teenage Daughter”. At the time, the network had no plans to recast Ritter’s role, instead, it was written into the show that Dad had died. What was stated though was that at same stage producers might want to bring in another actor to join the series. According to TV Guide, such a thing might already be happening. And who’s the new lead? [if the rumours are true] Ed O’Neill apparently. The “L.A Dragnet” star would come on board playing Katey Sagal’s brother. What’s ironic is that O’Neill and Sagal starred for many years together on another successful sitcom, “Married with Children”. We’ll keep you posted.
