Your Mental Sorbet: "Mary" and the "The Mary Tyler Moore Hour"

Here is another "Mental Sorbet
that we could use to momentarily forget about those
things that leave a bad taste in our mouths.

Mary was a comedy-variety show hosted by and starring Mary Tyler Moore that aired Sundays at 8:00 pm (EST) on CBS from September 24 to October 8, 1978, with a total of three episodes produced over one season. Moore's supporting cast included a repertory company of young actors and actresses, most notably Swoosie KurtzDick ShawnMichael KeatonMerrill Markoe, and David Letterman.

The Mary Tyler Moore Hour was an sitcom-variety show starring Mary Tyler MooreDody GoodmanJoyce Van Patten and Michael Keaton as a studio page named Kenneth (Sound familiar?). The show aired on CBS from March 4, 1979 to June 10, 1979, with a total of 11 episodes spanning over one season.

In the 4th episode that aired March 25, 1979.
Mary is worried when a brush fire nears her California home and she may be forced to evacuate. At the same time, Dick Van Dyke meets the show's creative team to mull over ideas for a possible guest appearance and they fantasize about what a sketch of The Dick Van Dyke Show would look like on Rob and Laura Petrie's 50th wedding anniversary.
