Did You Know?


Nick at Nite began airing reruns of the show in 2001. A viewer called the network and claimed that in the episode "The Charming Stranger" (ep. #8.11), John Ritter's genitals can be seen very briefly in one scene where he is wearing boxers and sitting on his bed. Nick at Nite deleted that scene from subsequent repeats. Ritter told The New York Observer: "I've requested that they air both versions, edited and unedited, because sometimes you feel like a nut, and sometimes you don't." See more »
