Did You Know?


Ted was originally supposed to be Mary's love interest. Originally they were thinking of Lyle Waggoner for the role. Then Ted Knight, an older man in his 40s, nailed the audition, and at that point, because he was older, and an inappropriate match for Mary, they jettisoned that subplot. They were also thinking of making Lou Mary's ongoing love interest, but Mary Tyler Moore herself vetoed that idea, so they had the characters date and then the romance quickly ended. Murray on the other hand was based on a gay person, someone who was supposed to be Mary's nemesis, and Gavin MacLeod played him gay in the pilot; but he and Mary had such chemistry they made the characters friends, and that Mary would be the object of his crush.


Sue Ann Nivens: I've gotten involved in the most wonderful business. I'd like to give you all my new business card
Murray Slaughter: "Sue Ann Nivens; Insurance Sales". Great, Sue Ann; let me give you my card.
Sue Ann Nivens: "Murray Slaughter; Not Interested".


On the newsroom wall there are various world clocks like you would see in a typical newsroom of that era. In the center is the Minneapolis/St. Paul clock, and to its left is a Chicago clock. Minneapolis and Chicago are both in the central time zone, so there is no need to have two different clocks. Furthermore it can be seen that the Chicago clock is set roughly an hour ahead.

Crazy Credits

Throughout Season 5, scenes of Mary and Rhoda walking down the street can be seen in the opening credits for a few episodes despite Rhoda having moved to New York.
