Personal Quote:

(on making the transition from the comedy Mary Tyler Moore (1970) to its dramatic spin-off series Lou Grant (1977)] We were really worried about changing over from a three-camera half-hour comedy to a one-camera full-hour drama. The audience wasn't ready for the switch - even CBS billed us in their promos as a comedy. In fact, the whole thing was impossible. But we didn't know that. See more »
