We Got It Made

Show Summary

We Got it Made was a short-lived sitcom which had two lives -- once on NBC and again in syndication a few years after its original cancellation.

The central focus of the show was Mickey Mackenzie, a stunningly beautiful 20s-something woman and job-seeker. She is the first applicant for a housemaid job for two Manhattan bachelors, neat-freak David Tucker and unkempt salesman Jay Bostwick. They hire her on the spot, even though she has no previous experience.

Jay's girlfriend, Beth, was a kindergarten teacher, while David's girlfriend was Claudia. Stefanie Kramer, who played Claudia, left the show early in its run (she would be far better recognized as Dee Dee McCall on Hunter, which premiered the next year on NBC).

When We Got it Made returned in syndication in 1987, Beth was gone too (her absence was not explained), but David, Jay and Mickey were back. They gained new neighbors in Max Papavasiolios Sr. and his son, Max Jr.

We Got it Made was one of the few early successes for NBC's disasterous 1983-1984 season, winning its time spot early in the run. But the ratings quickly declined (amid bad reviews from critics and viewers alike), and before long, it was on the sidelines. The syndicated version didn't fare much better.moreless

    This show was supposed to be a take-off of Three's Company with two guys living with a girl, but it was actually more of a rip-off with none of the talent or humor. The spin was that the guys were opposites, a homage to the Odd Couple with actor Matt McCoy as the uptight handsome lawyer and Tom Villard as the goofy looking space cadet with his head in the clouds. They both had girlfriends played by Stepfanie Kramer (later of Hunter fame) and Bonnie Urseth. Then in walked Teri Copley, a beautiful, vacuous blonde whose personality was even amounts of Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball, who they hired to be their live-in maid, but she was really just a bit of jiggle with no brain - basically Suzanne Somers in Marilyn Monroe's body. The series was to prove how the guys could be loyal to their girls without obsessing about their drop-dead gorgeous maid. This nearly successful show was then ruined by what kills so many first time shows: tampering. Out went McCoy, Kramer and Urseth, leaving Copley and Villard with another idiot roommate to suffer through first-run syndication. This show was supposed to be a break-out success for Teri Copley, but instead it became another example of another really bad example of how not to ruin a series!moreless
