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

True. One writer today called it the best sitcom episode ever. I have no issue with that. It was spectacular.

"I hate spunk."
I think that was my favorite moment in the series.

People have a lot of attitude towards those who actually put out some effort and did something with their lives.
I'm not so sure that she became "unpopular", but she tried to make the leap from sitcom actress to serious movie actress on the big screen, and as is often the case, it just didn't work.

Sundance TV is showing the last season of the MTM Show. According to Wikipedia, it was the lowest-rated of the seven seasons. From the shows I've watched, I can see some of the spark has gone.

Actually met Miss. Tyler-Moore here in NYC years back. This was when she still lived on Fifth Avenue. Stood in back of her on a check-out line for a rather up-scale specialty supermarket in our street. Don't think many if anyone realized who she was; and as MTM left she got into a waiting car and that was that.

She was just amazing in that role. Phenomenal movie (and book).

I can't get the video to play, but I'm surprised the text that accompanies the video doesn't mention the 'Mary statue' which, of course, depicts the hat toss. I enjoyed seeing the statue the last time I was in Minneapolis....
