Mary Tyler Moore - perhaps the most wonderful, enchanting, talented star in the history of the medium, but then I am quite possibly biased - arrives at "Hot in Cleveland' tonight for a finale to top all finales - a "Mary Tyler Moore Show" reunion.. It's all happening at 10 p.m. over at TV Land, and this is an event not to be missed.... I could almost write the press release myself. Maybe I just did.
Here are the production notes, and....clips!
Elka (Betty White), Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) Joy (Jane Leeves) and Victoria (Wendie Malick) are getting ready for their “birthdates” – their annual birthday tradition of setting each other up for dates – but choose to shake things up a bit this year. Elka and Mamie Sue (Georgia Engel) decide they want to get their bowling team back together, aptly named GLOB: the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling. The team, which includes Elka, Mamie Sue, Diane (Mary Tyler Moore), Peg (Cloris Leachman) and Angie (Valerie Harper), had a falling out decades ago after their championship season went to their heads. Meanwhile, Victoria meets with the indie director she idolizes (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and is surprised to find that he has a very unique trait; Joy can’t believe that her date (George Hamilton) has a more “mature” taste in women; and Melanie is psyched that her set-up is a plastic surgeon…until she isn’t anymore. Guest stars: Mary Tyler Moore, Cloris Leachman, Valerie Harper, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Georgia Engel, George Hamilton. TV-PG
