Mary Tyler Moore

Ryan and Jason come full circle in paying tribute to a fallen Lady: the woman who started it all, not just the template for independent strong women on television, but whose failing health in recent years was the actual catalyst for beginning this experiment in vigilance through Google Alerts that we call LadyWatch. A bright and shining star of television (in both black and white and living 1970s color), a Lady producer who made television on her own terms and also created many opportunities for other Ladies, a brilliant comedic and dramatic actress alike, tireless advocate for multiple causes, the world's favorite toothy turn-on, the one and only Mary Tyler Moore.
