MTM.8-14As we get closer to the release date (5/7/13!) of my Mary Tyler Moore Show book, Mary and Lou and Rhoda and TedI’m collecting fans’ memories and stories about what the show meant to them. Please share any of your thoughts in the comments below … I’d love to put them together for a series of blog posts when the book comes out to keep the discussion going.

First up: Who was your favorite Mary Tyler Moore Show character? Did you love down-to-earth Mary? Relate to the witty Rhoda? Wish Lou was your gruff-but-kind boss? Tell me!
