Author Armstrong, Jennifer Keishin.
BIBLIOG. Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Jennifer Armstrong introduces readers to The Mary Tyler Moore Show's creators; its principled producer, Grant Tinker; and the writers and actors who attracted millions of viewers - to the surprise of network executives. As the first sitcom to employ numerous women as writers and producers, the show became a guiding light for women in the 1970s - and the centerpiece of one of the greatest evenings of comedy in television history.
