Mary Tyler Moore Show Has Reunion on Betty White’s Hit Comedy “Hot in Cleveland” (VIDEO)
The cast of the iconic television sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show reunites to tape an episode of Betty White's show "Hot in Cleveland". This is the first reunion of the cast since the MTM show went off the air in 1977. (Although she is not pictured above, Georgia Engle, another cast member, participated in the taping).
Recently, Valerie Harper, who played Mary Tyler Moore's neighbor Rhoda Morgenstern, was diagnosed with a terminal illness making this a bittersweet gathering. Betty White, now 91, is the star of "Hot in Cleveland."
The Mary Tyler Moore Show ran from 1970 to 1977 and won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Show. Ed Asner, now 83, went on to star in his own show based on his character Lou Grant.
The show has remained popular in reruns for decades. The cast was truly a classic ensemble collection of talent. There is no air date set for the reunion of the cast on Hot in Cleveland. I do think however, that when we all watch it we will be thinking of a funny guy who didn't stick around long enough to make the reunion....
