    I saw commercial for his son Jason's show, "Kevin saves world" or something. I was like, wow he reminds me of someone.
    Looked him up and wow..he looks and sounds just like dad.

    I miss John.

    I did the same thing. Did you notice that he has his dad's mannerisms and facial expressions? Uncanny isn't it? The show was pretty good too.

    I think he doesn't actually sound like his dad. I think maybe a little bit when John was in Three's Co

    He's generally good in whatever he's in. He does remind you of John at times but can hold his own as well. One of his best works was in the show Joan Of Arcadia a show which lasted about 2 seasons back in the early 00s. He was actually the best thing in it to be honest. His character Kevin was a paraplegic but unlike many of the shows shown at the time, a big deal wasn't made of the fact he was in a chair, it was just part of who he was. It should have lasted more than a couple of years but it wasn't to be.

    I read that this show isn't likely to last long due to the steep drop in ratings between the premiere and second episodes. That's a shame because it's a good show.

    I'm also glad John's widow sued the hospital due to John's misdiagnosis that led to his death. The foundation she created for awareness and early detection of his condition was a great idea too.

    This was another great loss to the entertainment industry, so sad. I loved him in three's company as well as 8 simple rules, they were my favourites.

    I have an autographed picture of his widow, Amy Yasbeck. I have an odd hobby in that I'm collecting autographed pictures of the cast of Wings.

    Jason Ritter is great. His arc on Parenthood was one of my favorites on the show. He does remind me of his dad, but very good in his own right as well.

    With all the money he made in the industry, he still wanted to continue to work.

    Working isn't always all about money, especially in the arts.

    Nothing wrong with you, John Ritter was a bad husband.
    Back in 1980 he had a something with Dorothy Stratten while
    making the the film: They all laughed. (1980)

    Also Kaley Cuoco who did a sitcom with him years ago hates
    him, to this day.

    I wonder how John Ritter first wife would feel?

    I didn't know Kaley had a problem with him. She played one of his daughters in 8 Simple rules and when he died, she was upset when talking about it and said he was like a second dad to her. I guess she's a better actress than I thought she originally was.

    Here's an article about Kaley Cuoco blowing a kiss to his star on the Walk of Fame recently. I never heard anything about her having a problem with him.

    Yes! Very much, but with something a little alien about his eyes. His Mom maybe?

    Well, here she is on the 10th anniversary of his death talking about how wonderful he was.

    Seriously, do you have ANY evidence for what you're claiming? Or should everybody just take your word for it on something you seem to be making up?

    I looked around and couldn't find anything like that even in the Blind Sites. There are several mentions that he is named in the book You'll never Make Love In This Town Again where it says he had a mistress and was also regularly seeing a prostitute while married but that's about it. Kaley has several mentions about being problematic but when it comes to John she only speaks well of him. If there is something I can't seem to find it.

    Yeah I couldn't find anything about her saying anything bad about him at all or hint at the #metoo, that you are implying, do you have solid proof, links, anything, interviews of her saying that or filing a complaint, what about TMZ?
