'Three's Company', the comedy centered on two attractive, young women who made the rent on their Santa Monica beach-side apartment by taking in a third roommate - a male forced to pretend he's gay to fool the landlords and the girls' parents. The series rocketed in the ratings as an instant hit - despite the outcry of critics and moralists - who objected to the double-entendres and quasi-sexual hijinks on the show. However, the true behind-the-scenes story of 'Three's Company' will expose a once idyllic workplace that deteriorated into a battleground beset by business dealings, contact disputes, cast rivalries, clashes between producers and network executives and finally, a round of cast replacements which hastened the demise of the show.

In a scene set during the 1978-79 season, an ABC executive says that "CHiPs" is NBC's only hit. That was only the network's third highest-rated program that year, behind "Little House on the Prairie" and "Real People." See more »
I thought this TV movie was very well done. It was well directed, well written and the actors all did a great job. The story itself was pretty straightforward and predictable, but it was executed very well.
The emphasis of the story was obviously based around Suzanne Somers' contract disputes, but the story never focused on one area for too long. It was a well-balanced and enjoyable TV movie. Well cast and well shot, it was a truly enjoyable watch.
All the actors did a great job. Bret Anthony did a good job with John Ritter, even if he does look uncannily like a Kennedy. Melanie Moore was great as DeWitt, even if the voice wasn't quite there. Judy Tylor is one fine looking Somers, but she also showed great range in her performance. Gregg Brinkley seemed a little too young to play Don Knotts but he pulled off the voice and mannerisms perfectly. Brian Dennehy was great as usual in his "I appear in everything" character-actor role.
All in all, a surprisingly solid TV movie. Definately worth a viewing during the VH1 reruns.
The only problems (minor):
Suzanne Somers didn't start promoting the Thighmaster until the late 80's, this movie has you believe she started in the early 80's.
The clothing was pretty accurate for the main characters, but the network brass all wore suits that were nowhere near in-style during the 1970's. No crazy collars, no big, wide ties, no plaid, etc...
The sets weren't all that accurate when compared to the original show.
As everyone has said, no Larry.
