Did You Know?
The 1980-1981 season was very difficult for the cast and crew. Suzanne Somers
demanded a huge salary increase and part ownership of the show. When she was declined, she would often not show up to work. John Ritter
and Joyce DeWitt
refused to work with Somers any longer. So her character Chrissy was written out of the season except for a tag scene at the very end of the episodes. In these scenes, Chrissy was visiting her family and she would call Jack and Janet on the phone. These scenes were filmed early in the day so Somers would be off the set by the time Ritter and DeWitt arrived as they wanted no contact with her. Near the end of the season, Somers was fired and Chrissy was never mentioned again. See more
