ABC interview


ABC-TV talks with USA Today about Who’s the Boss? as it drops from its top twenty position, despite that it is still popular and is renewed for an eighth season.

Katherine Helmond interview


Helmond talks with The Associated Press and says that her role on Who’s the Boss? was originally supposed to be the sister of Angela, not the mother. They decided a mother-daughter duo would be better.

They read a lot of young ladies. But they felt it turned out to be kind of sour grapes. Each sister seemed a little envious of the other.

Tony Danza interview


Danza talks about being more than just the star of Who’s the Boss? He gets to try his hand at directing, as well as acting to every aspect of the show.

That’s my responsibility because if the show ever gets canceled, they ain’t gonna remember Marty Cohan or Blake Hunter, they’ll remember Tony Danza got canceled—that’s why I’m involved.
