Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • This is the first MTM episode where the closing credits roll on top of an actual scene (Ted's acceptance speech in the middle of the newsroom as everyone rolls their eyes and walk away). This would eventually become standard sitcom practice two decades later, employed by Roseanne, The Drew Carey Show, Ellen, etc.

    • The "Tinker Award" that Lou gives to the newsroom staff at the end of the episode was presumably named after Grant Tinker, the head of MTM Enterprises and who was at the time Mary Tyler Moore's husband.

    • Mary and Lou discuss other stations in competition for the "teddies" and mention WCCO, which is a television station in Minneapolis/St. Paul that was the news ratings leader during the 1970s.
