    For the first couple seasons Good Times and Happy Days were scheduled at the same time, on Tuesday nights at 8pm EST, so they were in direct competition with each other. Good Times was the champ during the first two years, and Happy Days was slated for cancelation. Then Happy Days was retooled in part to copy some of the strong points of Good Times: Good Times had a flamboyant teen idol ladies man type character at it' s core who used lot of catch phrases ( JJ). So Happy Days decided to copy the same format, pushing Fonzie, its teen idol, into the center of the show, giving him lots of catch phrases to compete with Dynomite, like "Ayyyy!" and "coolimundo!". The changes worked: Happy Days jumped to number 1 in the ratings, crushing the competition Good Times.
