  • A joke about John Ritter's role in 8 Simple Rules was deleted from the "North by North Quahog" episode of Family Guy in an apparently rare case of the writing team finding one of their own jokes too distasteful to broadcast; originally, the gag involved Meg wanting to watch 8 Simple Rules, but Chris refuses to change the channel, commenting "That show hasn't been the same since they killed John Ritter."[citation needed] It was replaced with a joke about George Lopez, with Meg wanting to watch The George Lopez Show (which also aired on ABC), but Chris refusing to change the channel, quoting "That show only furthers the stereotype that George Lopez is funny". Incidentally, Family Guy also had an episode entitled "8 Simple Rules for Buying My Teenage Daughter."
  • On the short-lived The Warner Bros. .Television Network sitcom The Help one of the male characters joked about "Not seeing so much phony emotion since the promos for '8 Simple Rules'."
