The Mary Tyler Moore Show

From Quotes
The ideas of a time are like the clothes of a season: they are as arbitrary, as much imposed by some superior will which is seldom explicit. They are utilitarian and political, the instruments of smooth-running government.
Wyndham Lewis

Mary Tyler Moore (1970–1977) is an American television sitcom that aired on CBS. (The correct name of the sitcom is Mary Tyler Moore, although it is widely known as The Mary Tyler Moore Show.) Actor Mary Tyler Moore stars as Mary Richards, a single woman who, at age 30, moves to Minneapolis, Minnesota to work as an associate producer for the news broadcast on WJM-TV. Her new friends at work include her tough boss, Lou Grant; sympathetic newswriter Murray Slaughter; and buffoonish anchorman Ted Baxter. Mary's acquaintances and friends outside of the job include self-deprecating ex-New Yorker Rhoda Morgenstern and their insincere, self-centered landlady Phyllis Lindstrom. Later cast additions include acerbic, man-hungry Sue Ann Nivens, host of WJM's cooking program, The Happy Homemaker, and soft-spoken Georgette Franklin, Ted Baxter's girlfriend.

Love is all around, no need to waste it.
You can have a town, why don't you take it?
You're gonna make it after all.
