TV show description:
Two friends and roommates, pragmatic Janet Wood (Joyce DeWitt) and ditzy Chrissy Snow (Suzanne Somers), are in need of a new roommate. The morning after their goodbye party for their former roommate, they discover leftover guest Jack Tripper (John Ritter) passed out in the bathtub.

Jack, who is training to be a chef, is living at the YMCA, and both Janet and Chrissy convince him to move in. Landlord Stanley Roeper (Norman Fell) takes more convincing, however, and only agrees to the arrangement when Janet lies and tells him that Jack is gay.

Once Jack moves in, comedy antics ensue. Though he’s a ladies-man, Jack must pretend to be gay often as both Mr. Roeper and his sexually-frustrated wife Helen (Audra Landry) live downstairs and frequently pop in on their renters.

Later in the series (when the Roepers were given their own spin-off), foolish Ralph Furley (Don Knotts) becomes the trio’s new landlord. Chrissy moves away and is replaced by her cousin, Cindy Snow (Jenilee Harrison), and then nurse Teri Alden (Priscilla Barnes).

Though this slapstick bedroom comedy saw many cast changes during its run, the show never failed to make audiences laugh.

I GREW UP ON THREE’S COMPANY. THE SHOW’S IS ABOUT THREE AND A HALF MONTHS OLDER. I HAVE THE THREE’S COMPANY GUIDE BOOK, ALL THE DVDS.

I NEVER ONCE MISSED T WHEN IT WAS RUNNING, RERUNS, OR ANYTHING!

THE ONLY TIME THAT I COULD NOT AT ALL WAS WHEN JOHN RITTER HAD DIED, I STILL HAVE TO HOLD MYSELF TOGETHER, IT’S BEEN SIX YEARS NOW, AND I WILL NEVER OVER IT, WHO COULD?

IT WAS SAD ENOUGH WHEN ( THE ROPERS) AUDRA LINDLY, NOMAN FELL AND DON KNOTTS HAD PASSED AWAY. BUT FOR LOSING JOHN RITTER, THREE’S OMPANY JUST DOESN’T SEEM AS FUNNY ANYMORE, IT LASK!!

This has been one of my favs since I was very young! I have episodes on my dvr and when I’m feeling down I turn one on and I’m instantly cheered up. It’s very comforting for me.
