“For Mature Audiences Only”: treasured TV oldsters of yesteryear

27 May 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some may say that television hasn’t been too good to senior citizens in terms of their stereotypical depictions. Regardless of the unflattering portrayals there had been some memorable oldsters (in this case over 60) that have given us equal shares of both laughs and cries. In “For Mature Audiences Only”, let’s take a look at some of the more mature characterizations that had an impact on our daily doses of entertainment on the glorious boob tube.

Instead of doing a typical top ten or top twenty listing let’s go in between with a top fifteen selection, shall we? The “For Mature Audiences Only” choices are not necessarily a tasting that everyone will agree on. Perhaps you have your own preferences that were omitted or something that you feel should be added? Anyway, here are the candidates in alphabetical order…

Valerie Harper Says 'Cancer Free' Quote Was Taken Out of Context

17 April 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Erroneous reports this week suggesting Valerie Harper was "cancer free" can be chalked up to a misunderstanding between the actress and a reporter. Harper, who is battling terminal brain cancer, did use the phrase "cancer free" in an interview with Closer Weekly magazine, but was referring to the rest of her body - following a scan to see if her cancer had spread. "I had just had my yearly full-body scan to determine if this sneaky cancer had migrated to other parts of my body," the Rhoda star, 74, says in a new statement released by The Hallmark Channel.

Valerie Harper Says She's Now 'Cancer-Free' After Terminal Diagnosis

16 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Valerie Harper, best known for playing Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda, says she’s “absolutely cancer-free” over a year after announcing that she had terminal brain cancer.

Valerie Harper Is 'Cancer-Free'

"I'm absolutely cancer-free!" Harper told Closer Weekly. "My last scans have been positive, and my doctors are very happy. [The oncologist] looked at the scans and said, 'Oh my God, Valerie, this is very encouraging!' "

While her doctor is wary of telling the legendary comedic actress that she’s in remission, he’s more than happy with what the scans are showing. "My doctor doesn't use that term [remission],” said Harper. “He likes to say, 'I give you a treatment, and it's either responsive or non-responsive — and you are having a phenomenal response.'"

As part of her treatment regiment, Harper takes several pills in a “pulse does” – at one sitting, once per week.

In response to a story in Closer Weekly that quotes Valerie Harper as having declared that she is “absolutely cancer-free,” the Emmy winner has come out to say that the quote is unfortunately “erroneous.”

Harper, who rose to fame as Rhoda in “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and starred as the character in the spinoff “Rhoda,” is currently promoting her appearance in Hallmark Channel series “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”

Harper was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009 and subsequently developed brain cancer. In January 2013, she was told she only had three months to live. However, she told Variety in November that she was continuing to show improvement. »

Unit production manager and TV assistant director Abby Singer, famed for being the source of the name for the penultimate shot of the day, died Thursday at the Motion Picture and Television Country House in Woodland Hills. He was 96.

Directors Guild of America president Paris Barclay said, “From his first job as the assistant to the head of production at Columbia in 1949 to his final film as unit production manager for ‘Family Plan’ in 1997, Abby Singer was renowned for working consistently, enthusiastically and most importantly – efficiently.

“It was this efficiency that led to the coining of a phrase known throughout the entertainment industry and around the world as the ‘Abby Singer shot’ – the next to last shot of the day.”
