The comedy universe lost a titan on January 25th with the passing of Mary Tyler Moore.
 
A true television pioneer and icon of the small and big screen, Moore changed entertainment for the better with her portrayal of Mary Richards on her eponymous sitcom, breaking female characters out of the tired mould of the traditional housewife.  
 
In celebration of her life and career, Comedy will be airing a Mary Tyler Moore Show marathon of classic episodes on Sunday, January 29 starting noon. The series, created by James L. Brooks and Allan Burns, wove hot button and still relevant issues such as gender parity, pre-marital sex, and homosexuality into its plots. Originally airing from 1970 to 1977, the show was the first to feature a never-married, thirty-something, independent career woman as its central character.
 
Here’s a rundown of what you’ll be able to watch on Sunday:
 
12 p.m. ET/PT - “Love Is All Around” (Season 1, Episode 1)
1 p.m. ET/PT - “Toulousse-Lautrec Is One Of My Favorite Artists” (Season 1, Episode 7)
1:30 p.m. ET/PT - “The Good-Time News” (Season 3, Episode 1)
2 p.m. ET/PT - “Just Around The Corner” (Season 3, Episode 7)

After applying for a secretarial job at a TV station, Moore’s Mary Richards is offered the position of associate producer of the “Six O'Clock News”. Eventually, she befriends her tough but lovable boss Lou Grant (Ed Asner), news writer Murray Slaughter (Gavin MacLeod), and buffoonish anchorman Ted Baxter (Ted Knight). The Mary Tyler Moore Show featured a bevy of iconic roles for women including snobby landlady Phyllis Lindstrom (Cloris Leachman); upstairs neighbor and future best friend Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper); acerbic, man-hungry TV hostess Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White), and sweet-natured Georgette Franklin (Georgia Engel).

One of the most acclaimed television programs in television history, the series landed 7 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series three years in a row (1975–77). In 2013, the Writers Guild of America ranked The Mary Tyler Moore Show number 6 in its list of the 101 Best Written TV Series of All Time.
