And...

Joyce Bulifant 83*

(...well, with 11 appearances on the show, and that being only 2 less than John Amos, I think she deserves a mention here TOO, Jim)

 

Lisa Gerritsen appeared as Bess Lindstrom, the daughter of Phyllis and (the never seen) Lars Lindstrom in 10 episodes.

My favorite part of this entire episode is the "12 days of Christmas sing-a-long" with everyone mad (except Sue Ann and Georgette) at each other, and the hilarious hats that they wear.

MURRAY (Wearing an Italian gondolier hat) sings  "a partridge in a pear tree." 

TED (Wearing a Russian hat) sings "two turtle doves"

LOU (Wearing a Mexican sombrero) "sings" : THREE FRENCH HENS

MARY (wearing a German Kaiser helmet with the spike): "sings" four calling birds

SUE ANN (wearing a Dutch style hat) sings: "fiiiiiiveeeee goldennnn riiiiiiiings!" 

LOU  Listen, Sue Ann. We don't want to wear any funny hats,  We're not children 

SUE ANN  Well, of course you're not.  But if you don't put on your hats, you can't have any dinner.

Funny, but I don't remember Asner's character Bart Jason, a wealthy land baron, bein' any sort'a "socialist" there, cowboy!

(...land barons usually don't lean that way, ya know)

Simple. Two sentences, one fantasy, one reality. But you knew that.  Guess its just a state of mind. Thanks ElCid.

Btw, during production, John Wayne referred to Ed Asner as, " that New York actor". Now that IS reality, pilgrim.

It's a pity he had so few leading roles in films.

It's even more of a pity that there's no way TCM is going to show one of those films, Up, in our lifetime.

MeTV is going to show 4 MTM episodes on Sunday Sept 5 as a tribute.  They are also going to show a 1963 episode of the Alfred Hitchcock Hour that featured Asner.    No "Lou Grant Show" episodes though.....

Didn't Ed also show up frequently on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show"  in some kind of recurrent sketches called "Scare Ed Asner" or something?  :huh:

I hope I remember to watch. They should show a whole 24 hr marathon! Is anyone running the MTM show now on cable? If I remember correctly Ed played a heavy type in that A.H. Hour episode. (Father of a troubled boy)

OK.  And a very young LINDA HUNT played Murray's daughter.  But only one episode if memory serves....

You're thinking about that other Oscar winner named Hunt -- Helen.

Decades is airing a "Mary Tyler Moore" marathon from Saturday at noon until Monday at 5 a.m. Eastern Time. I believe it was scheduled before Asner's death.

They do a binge every weekend, where they dedicate their entire weekend schedule to a single show.

Yeah, so maybe a "Lou Grant" marathon is in our future.

I wouldn't have chosen those episodes, here are my favorite ones featuring the Lou Grant character-

"Baby Sitcom" from Season 2- Mary is supposed to baby sit Phyllis's daughter Bess but has a date, she asks Mr. Grant to fill in for her. Lou's scenes with Bess are very funny. The first thing he says is "Do anything ya want, kid, just don't play with matches!" They get along when Lou has some scotch and Bess plays poker with him.

"Lou's Place" from Season 3- Lou buys his favorite neighborhood bar, but the customers don't come. He decides he needs to be more lovable and tries a Happy Hour. He tries to lead the few customers into a sing a long, but they don't sing. In a hilarious moment he suddenly turns into his gruff old self and says "What the hell's wrong with you anyway?"  Then he DEMANDS everybody start singing. 

"Lou's First Date" from Season 4- Lou is separated from his wife and needs a date for a banquet. Rhoda suggests a friend of hers but due to a mix up the date turns out to be her friend's 80 year old mother in law! Lou's reaction is priceless, he also finds out she was flower girl at Thomas Alva Edison's wedding.

"Happy Birthday Lou" from Season 4- Mary plans a surprise birthday party for Lou since he will be alone on that day. She finds out he hates surprise parties when he tells her while a bunch of guests stand outside her door. One of the funniest scenes in the series history and he tries to get away from the rowdy bunch of partiers.

Yes, the scene where she brings them in one-by-one is funny.

I also like the episode where he tries to compete with Mary's Aunt Flo.

decades won't choose to limit their content to 50s, 60s and some 70s shows. they no sooner give us some good stuff like this past weekend's Mayberry RFD marathon then they will swing right back to 80s, 90s and 2000s garbage.

FETV just added Leave It to Beaver to its late night/morning lineup and Mannix to the 10 to 12

evening slot. There will be a welcome Beaver mini-marathon on September 12th. I hope they

are more welcoming to Beaver than they were to Route 66, which they pulled even before one

complete run through.

Sure, while it might have been "reality" that John Wayne called Ed Asner "that New York actor", the fact actually is that Asner was Kansas City born and bred, and wasn't on the New York stage for very long before he moved out to L.A. and started getting work in both films and on TV.

(...pilgrim)  ;)
