My favorite sitcom from my childhood was Step By Step. I've watched a few episodes recently and the comedy still holds up.

Thanks for the laughs...

Re: Suzanne Somers dead at 76

I was just thinking about Three's Company this morning about how all the female roommates were all still alive, while many of the others were gone. Three's Company was one of my favorite sitcoms when I was a kid. I also watch Step By Step, but no where near as much. Step By Step was better when they had Cody on it. When he left, the show went down hill quickly.

I can't I ever watched Three's Company in reruns but I loved watching Step by Step when it aired. RiP

Sad news. I have a kid who adores Three's Company (one of my absolute favorites as a kid, too) and she's bummed to hear about this.

Ah shit. She was one of my first childhood TV crushes, along with Lynda Carter. RIP Suzanne.

I totally thought Joyce DeWitt was gone too but she's still with us which is good because, you know, three's a crowd.

Bummer that she fought cancer hard for 23+ years and sadly her body just gave out. I always recalled that she was a huge health guru. Just continues to show that you could do everything right in your life, eat only veggies, organic foods, exercise like a maniac and still get this insidious disease.

She revealed in July that she had a recurrence of her cancer.

Sad news. I always enjoyed the Terri years more on Three’s Company. And while she was hot when she was younger, she hit her hotness peak in Step By Step. I didn’t watch it consistently but I had crushes on all the girls on that show.

I was just old enough to remember the very end of Three's Company's run on TV. By then Suzanne Somers had left the show. I did watch the first few seasons of Step by Step along with Family Matters on TGIF.

Yes, young-uns, there was a time when this was the stuff that wet dreams were made of.

Also a big fan of Three’s Company as a kid, probably a bit young for it but Ritter was hilarious and Sommers was just so effervescent.

RIP

Re: Suzanne Somers dead at 76

By this point I remember her more for the infomercials she did than Three's Company.

I enjoyed Three’s Company back in the day on Nick at Nite. Joyce DeWitt is the last of the original cast left now. RIP.

Re: Suzanne Somers dead at 76

Somers didn't do much for me for some reason. I always preferred Janet (when she straightened her hair) and also thought Terri was hot.

Anyone remember She's the Sheriff? It wasn't very good and only lasted 2 seasons.
Funny enough, Priscilla Barnes was set to play the lead and just before production, Sommers took her place (where Barnes replaced Sommers on Three's Company - after the Cindy character left).

Of the threesome... Larry is still alive, although he was only in 1 episode the first season.

I watched Three's Company when I was a teenager, which is the perfect time to watch a show like that. RIP Suzanne Somers. Another reminder of my pending mortality.

Loved Three's Company when I was a kid. Watched it in syndication. Most of the more adult-oriented humor went over my head, but I still got a kick out of the physical comedy.

The episode with the misunderstanding was the best one.

Re: Suzanne Somers dead at 76

I knew her from reruns of Three's Company and from watching Step by Step when it was new. So she was a staple of my formative years.

I never knew "She's the Sheriff" was a real show. I thought it was just a joke from South Park.
