Sadly, actor John Ritter passed away last night at the young age of 54. Ritter is survived by his wife, Amy Yasbeck, and their daughter Stella, and three children — Carly, Tyler and Jason — from his first marriage to Nancy Morgan.

I really enjoyed watching Three’s Company when I was a kid. John Ritter was at the top of his game and Suzanne Somers didn’t need any plastic surgery–those were the days. I thought the girls on the show were hot and the premise of the show was funny. A guy living with two girls pretends he’s gay so the landlord will let him stay. Oh, and did I mention the girls were hot? But, Ritter’s physical comedy as Jack Tripper is what really made the show–he will be missed!


  1. I was very shocked to hear about John Ritter’s death. He was one of my favorite actors. I loved him in 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter. That was my favorite show since the first episode. I had also watch Three’s Company when the reruns were on. He was an excellent actor, and he can never be replaced. I just have to say, he will be very missed.

  3. I have just watched the episode of 8 Simple rules in which he is written out. It doesn’t seem fair to say that, but I was happy to watch it. The actors were trully greiving for him. You could just tell, noone needed proof, out-takes or anything. This man was wonderful. As an actor, a comedian, and a family man. I didn’t know him, but what I have heard about him has all been positive. I’m going to tape the last episode he was in, and the episode after, and keep them as a memory of him forever.
