The Mary Tyler Moore Show - Season 5
Follow the daily trials and tribulations of Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore), an up-and-coming associate producer at WJM-TV fighting to make a place for herself in a man’s world. At work, she befriends her tough-but-lovable boss Lou Grant (Edward Asner), compassionate long-suffering news writer Murray Slaughter (Gavin MacLeod) and pretentious anchorman Ted Baxter (Ted Knight). At home Mary’s corky acquaintances include upstairs neighbor Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harpe), a self-deprecating ex-New Yorker who becomes her best friend and their neurotic, self-involved landlady, Phyllis Lindstrom (Cloris Leachman). In the Season 5 (1974-5) of the Emmy-winning hit show, Mary and her hilariously eccentric friends at WJM-TV weather a few storms -- sometimes literally. If her love life isn’t challenging enough, Mary takes a crack at producing the news, and even has a brush with the law! Laughs are the lead story when a consultant turns the newsroom on its ear, Lou becomes Mary’s neighbor, and Ted starts a rumor that he and Mary are dating.
