Eight Simple Rules Helps ABC Win Tuesday
Despite John Ritter's death or perhaps because of it, '8 Simple Rules for Dating My Daughter' remained strong with 17 million viewers for its season debut Tuesday. That, combined with a strong showing for the premiere of 'I'm With Her' (13.1 million), helped win the night for ABC among adults 18-49.
The network has plans to continue the show without Ritter hoping the show will continue to draw viewers. I've never watched it but I think Ritter is funny, Sagal is hilarious and the daughter is hot. I guess it's up to the ladies now to keep the show afloat.
