    Mary Tyler Moore made her name as Dick Van Dyke's wife on the eponymous show; she was a cute, unassuming housewife that audiences loved. But when screenwriters James Brooks and Allan Burnes dreamed up an edgy show about a divorced woman with a career, network executives replied: "Americans won't watch television about New York City, divorcées, men with mustaches, or Jews." But Moore and her team were committed, and when the show finally aired, in spite of tepid reviews, fans loved it.

    Eileen says: "The Narrator Came from the Ted Baxter School ..."
    "Good story but pathetic narration"

    Story

    Really interesting background information - for fans of the show as well as TV production in general. However, this narrator needs to do her homework - I would be interested to know how she got this job, as she clearly had no knowledge of the subject matter. First, she mispronounces common words such as "demurred" (at least 3 times) - but the problems really arose when she mispronounced the last name of Suzanne Pleshette as well as Captain Stubing (Gavin McLeod on The Love Boat). I find it incredibly disrespectful of the entire process - if the narrator can't be bothered to learn about the subject matter, where are the editors? Just sad.
