Storyline

After Mary Tyler Moore's long running sitcom ended, she tried to venture in comdey-variety. This was one of her attempts. It follows the same formula used in such shows like Carol Burnett. There are comdey sketches and musical numbers. And also there are behind the scenes, sketches, wherein the cast are not at work, and there is either a comedy routine and/ or musical number, usually done by Mary. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

A failed experiment
26 March 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After great success in sitcoms, Mary Tyler Moore tried something a little different with this variety series that was very obviously inspired by the Carol Burnett Show. Unfortunately, the polished-but-old-fashioned song-and-dance numbers and the often cornball sketch comedy was out of step with the times -- post Saturday Night Live, 'Mary' looked very out of date. (Although it should be said that Mary herself was in great shape and looked terrific in the dance numbers.) As well, a certain element of hipness was provided by sketch comedy regulars David Letterman, Michael Keaton and Swoosie Kurtz; however, the too-infrequent glimpses of their edgier brand of humour severely clashed with the generally conservative nature of the rest of the show. Not surprisingly, the whole uneasy mess only lasted a few weeks on the air.
