[show]The series and the fledgling Fox network were little known until the season three episode "Her Cups Runneth Over" after which Michigan housewife and "family values" activist Terry Rakolta found so offensive that she began a letter-writing campaign to the show's sponsors to try to get them to withdraw their sponsorship and for Fox to drop the show. A few sponsors did cancel their commercials, but her efforts had exactly the opposite effect she wanted: the story spread like wildfire and resulted in a huge jump in the ratings for the show. It made "Married with Children" a major hit and put Fox Network on the map.
- John Derbyshire of National Review described it as "one of the most conservative shows on TV."
- In addition to playing the role of Marcy Rhodes/Marcy D'Arcy, Amanda Bearse directed several episodes.
