Mary Tyler Moore: TV Thanks You

Image result for mary tyler moore

Yesterday,we lost another Icon. The beloved Mary Tyler Moore. Just like her famous theme song she really did make it after all. She first came on the scene with the Dick Van Dyck show in the 1960s,then she empowered working woman in the 1970s everywhere with the Mary Tyler Moore show. She also scored an Oscar nomination with the film Ordinary People in the 1980s. She was the bomb! It is because of her that a little unknown reporter named Oprah Winfrey would someday take Daytime TV by the horns. It is because of her that so many shows today depict working women of all shades,and no one blinks an eye. TMTS had conversations around equal pay,and sexism,and dating. It lead to a new way of looking at the American woman on television. mrs Moore was very beloved,I hope she is happy in that big Tv in the sky!
