Lou Grant

Show Summary

Lou Grant was a spinoff from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and premiered on CBS in September 1977. The series was a radical departure from its predecessor as it was a drama. It was the first successful one-hour show from MTM Enterprises. As the series began, Lou Grant had just been fired from his job at WJM-TV, and had moved to Los Angeles to work for a newspaper.

    It's weird, I've been using tv.com for ages and never ever thought of becoming a member and now because of Lou Grant I am a member nevertheless. I couldn't believe that so many people thought that this childhood classic of mine was a bad show. Lou Grant was shown in Germany in the late 70s and the early 80s ... not all episodes as I know by now but some and I never missed a single episode although I wasn't even 10 years old at that time. The stories fascinated me and in me grew the wish to become a journalist just because of this brilliant show. The cast, the characters and the stories delivered every single week and I couldn't name a single bad episode. I'm still hoping that one day this wonderful series will be released as a DVD set ... I'd be amongst the first to buy it!moreless

    Not seen it in a few years but the memory of it lingers on and inspires me still. Okay some cheesey moments but what do you expect in 1hr slots Shakespeare all the time? Tackled big issues some shows would still be scared of today. Edward Asner seemed ideal and believable in the role and it's sad not to see him similar roles today.
