The Mary Tyler Moore Show is a successful American television sitcom that aired on CBS from 1970 to 1977. The program was a television breakthrough, as it had as the central character the first never-married, independent career woman – Mary Richards, portrayed by the one and only Mary Tyler Moore.
The show has been cited as one of the most acclaimed television programs ever produced in US television history. It received high praise from critics and numerous awards, including Emmy Awards for ‘Outstanding Comedy Series’ for three years in a row. Moreover, the program continued to be honored long after the final episode aired.
The Mary Tyler Moore Show has remained popular long after the final episode was broadcast in 1977. Several television programs, films and songs referenced or parodied characters and events from the show, including the memorable title song line “…can turn the world on with her smile”.
Two retrospective specials were produced by CBS: Mary Tyler Moore: The 20th Anniversary Show (1991), and The Mary Tyler Moore Reunion (2000). However, one of the most popular and appreciated “specials”, if you can call them that, are the bloopers gag reels from the final season of the show.
