THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW MINI-MARATHON
January 29, 2017  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

MeTV, 2:00 p.m. ET

 
To salute Mary Tyler Moore, who died earlier this week at age 80, MeTV is presenting a three-hour block of selected episodes from her 1970s eponymous hit sitcom. The pilot episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, with Ed Asner’s Lou Grant telling Moore’s Mary Richards that she has “spunk,” kicks things off at 2 p.m. ET. Other key episodes: At 3:30 p.m. ET, the famous “Chuckles Bites the Dust” episode. At 4 p.m. ET, “Lou Dates Mary,” the series’ penultimate episode, which remains very true to both these iconic characters. And at 4:30 p.m. ET, “The Last Show,” with that great final group hug. To hear or read my NPR Fresh Air with Terry Gross tribute to Moore, visit the Fresh Air website. And for tributes here on TVWW, read Bill Brioux's TV Feeds My Family, David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower, Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes, and my own Bianculli’s Blog.

Jan 27 and Feb 3 & 10, Sundance TV is re-broadcasting episodes, too. Have them on my dvr and dvr's schedule. This past weekend, saw a few of Jan 27's episodes. This show was/is hilarious. Kind-of 'Seinfeldian' before we Seinfeld on NBC in the 1990s.
