Three's Company

Yes, the show's trademark innuendo and misunderstandings could be funny, but what makes the show inherently funny is that the situation driving this situational comedy was a landlord who was tolerant of a gay man but not unmarried cohabitation. Was there really a point in American culture when this was plausible? See also 70's, Sitcom.

I believe the area where they lived there were issues with polygamy, and the Landlord believed that it would be better to have a gay man there instead of a potential polygamist relationship. So it's not that he condoned homosexuality, but he just despised polygamy so much, that he was tolerable of the homosexuality.

So he's a gay Mormon's Antichrist. Weird.

What planet are you from? Or should I simply ask how old you are? Yes, actually there was a time in the 70's when our culture was more mature than it is now. Other shows, like All in the Family, could humorously yet compassionately bring attention to a lot of social issues.
