In the book Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong there is a discussion about what present day television programs are influence by The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The list includes: 30 Rock, Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Parks and Recreation, New Girl, Nurse Jackie, and Girls. The Mary Tyler Moore Show was the first show about a funny indpendent working woman making her way. We have that show to thank for many of our comedies. While I am away please post your favorite episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Tell us why you like it.
Note: I will post next Monday.
