But his character is too familiar, his context too trite.In fact, Paul is the man Jack Tripper might have grown up to be, had failed contract negotiations and a revolving door for blondes not driven Three's Company to an early grave.Bridget is presented as a ditzy blond; Kerry is a social activist. often provides questionable advice to the kids, but he's never harmful and clearly loves them. Coping with the death of a parent becomes a central theme in the second season; extended family becomes central to the healing process. Bridget is the scholastically challenged beauty with boy troubles; Kerry is the insecure middle child who isn't quite as pretty, but is twice as witty as her big sis; Rory's only purpose is to bug his sisters.While the pilot merely introduces the characters, episode two, entitled "Wall of Shame," is as hackneyed as they come -- a full 30 minutes of Paul complaining that he's missing a big game on TV because he has to deal with his ne'er-do-well offspring.Paul is a sportswriter just like Everybody Loves Raymond's title character.Kerry is a milder version of Roseanne's acerbic Darlene (Davidson even shares actress Sara Gilbert's trademark curly coif).

The first season focuses on a father who becomes more involved with his teenagers' lives after his wife goes back to work; in later episodes, coping with the sudden death of a parent and living/coping with extended family become central themes of the show. makes references to "booty calls." Occasional references to homosexuality.
While 8 Simple Rules is "based on" the best-selling book by W.
Bruce Cameron, it blatantly swipes elements from nearly every other sitcom on TV.
