Her show was among the most well acted and best written I have ever seen.


Very sad news. A class act full of talent is lost.

I'm too young to remember The Mary Tyler Moore Show, but I always knew who she was.

RIP.

Before looking up any of the people I listed, I knew Betty White to be at least 93, and likely at least 94....and I knew Dick Van Dyke and Cloris Leachman had hit at least 90.

I just looked up Morey Amsterdam before posting this. He's been gone for 20 years and a few months, but he almost made it to his 88th birthday.

While watching those two shows.....it just always seemed as though they must have had so much fun making them. Laughter is great medicine.

EDIT:

Re my first/previous post on this thread (not this post), I posted it without reading any of the other posts on the thread. My thought re the longevity of other cast members obviously occurred to others (I just read the whole thread)

IIRC Gordy the weatherman was played by John Amos who later starred in "Good Times." Georgia Engel, who played Ted's wife, frequently appeared on popular TV shows like "Coach" and "Everybody Loves Raymond."


I didn't include Georgia Engel on my previous list because I know she is quite a bit younger (born in 1948).

I can't believe I forgot about Gordy/John Amos . The look that Gordy often had on his face during or at the end of a conversation with Ted......hilarious.......priceless. And I watched Good Times occasionally as well. John Amos is the same age as Valerie Harper....77.

Some actors who haven't always been thin (or have never been thin) do live pretty long lives. Ernest Borgnine lived to be 95 and, as I mentioned before, Ed Asner is still with us at 87.

Ordinary People was one of the most worthy best picture award winners ever. But at the time, it wasn't the kind of movie that would draw me to the theater. I didn't realize how good it was until it came out on cable later. MTM was absolutely terrific in it, as was Judd Hirsh.

Mary Tyler Moore. She was my hero, too. When her show "The Mary Tyler Moore show," started, I was recently divorced, and starting a new career; so I looked forward to all of her shows. She was one in a million and a classy, caring woman.

Her "Ohhhh, Rob," used to grate my nerves, not any more, that sounds different, now. That show was also a hoot. Thank God, we have such talents, to make us laugh.

Thank you Mary Tyler Moore, you were a great role model. Through her heartaches and great health problems, she could still make us smile.

I did see her in that "Hot in Cleveland," show and that episode is a classic; if you missed it, find it...........

Seems like the best sitcoms always have a bunch of great people. Just like Seinfeld and the rest.

Yes, they are.

I met Ed Asner last year here in LA, other than being a little hard of hearing he's getting around pretty good.

Sad news, a very funny and talented lady.

The episode of the MTM show where "Chuckles the Clown" died was classic, her scene where she went from crying to laughing to crying again, comic brilliance.

You don't see this with the current crop of sitcom stars.
