    This will do well in ratings.

    Why no Ed Asner or Gavin McLeod?

  • TV Gord

    Gavin McLeod has been ill for quite some time. He wasn’t able to make it to the SAG Awards last year, either, when Mary received the Lifetime Achievement Awards. Ed Asner has been touring the country with his one-man show, FDR.

  • TV Gord

    Sorry, I meant MacLeod.

  • RJ

    Too bad this has already been on GMA and little bits on Inside Edition, ET, etc.

  • Joseph

    Hopefully, this won’t be the last time Valerie Harper will have a reunion with her “Mary Tyler Moore Show” castmates.

  • TV Gord

    RJ, you can’t compare a segment of a couple of minutes to an entire hour-long show (even in this world of six-second soundbites).

  • Mike

    I loved what I saw on GMA. I can’t wait to see the full hour. The GMA segment was great, but you could tell there was still much left unsaid.
