Former major-leaguer Tony Micelli and his daughter Samantha arrive at the Connecticut household of executive Angela Bower, where Tony has taken a job as live-in housekeeper. The Bowers are an interesting family, to say the least. Angela is uptight and obsessed with her work. Her son Jonathan is shy and lacks self-esteem, and her mother, Mona, is a man-hungry vixen. Tony soon wins them over with his laid-back style, and the Bowers soon begin to loosen up. Over time, romantic tensions begin to surface between Angela and Tony, and we see the children grow up.

Episode #115, (Living Dolls) was never shown during the series' original prime time run and instead premiered when "Who's the Boss" first entered syndication. The episode, which was meant to be a pilot for a new ABC series Living Dolls
(1989), was pulled from the schedule, due to last minute casting changes to the series. Several months later, a second episode (episode #123, "Life's A Ditch") was filmed to serve as a pilot for "Living Dolls", which aired on the same night "Living Dolls" finally premiered. See more
