How ever of course If you have never seen the show I suggest you do. It takes the sugary-sweet idea of a show revolving around a close family and turns it into a quite realistic yet funny depiction of a typical family complete with sibling and parent spats, brat brothers, over-protective fathers and bimbo sisters.

In 2004, John also received a posthumous Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series".
Katey Sagal hosted the final episodes featuring John and as a further tribute to his memory, the very first episode without him, "Goodbye - Parts 1 & 2" were filmed without laugh tracks or a studio audience.
