Stirring The Celebrity Death Pool - Mary Tyler Moore

It seems the iconic Mary Tyler Moore is in the hospital in "grave condition". TMZ reports that family and friends are going to the hospital to "say their final goodbyes".

MTM hasn't looked that great in the last decade. She's much more wobbly and frail looking than a contemporary like Carol Burnett. Although Carol isn't exactly hopscotching her way to interviews either.

MTM is 80.

Edit: She's passed away.

PS Dick Van Dyke said that diabetes has really taken a toll on her. She had brain surgery in 2011, and has probably never really come back from that.

And TMZ is now reporting she's passed away. She was 80 years old. From TMZ:

Mary Tyler Moore -- the television icon who charmed America with comedic brilliance and charisma on her hugely successful '70s show -- died in a Connecticut hospital ... TMZ has learned.

MTM's longtime rep, Mara Buxbaum, issued a statement to TMZ saying, "Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine."

"A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile."

We're told Mary had been on a respirator for more than a week.

Mary -- who battled diabetes and underwent brain surgery in 2011 -- became famous after starring on the "The Dick Van Dyke Show" from 1961 to 1966. She dazzled her way to 7 successful seasons on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" from 1970 to 1977, decimating skeptics who viewed her show as destined to fail.

She earned an Oscar nomination for best actress after crushing it in the 1980 flick "Ordinary People."

The 7 time Emmy winner began her career modeling in a commercial for "Happy Hotpoint" as a tiny elf that danced on appliances.

Mary, who in 1986 was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame, starred in well over 10 films and wrote 2 memoirs. She married 3 times ... forming power couple status when she married TV exec Grant Tinker in 1962.

Her only son, Richard, from her first marriage to Richard Meeker, died from an accidental gunshot in 1980.

Mary was 80.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

ABC has scheduled a special episode of 20/20 honoring the late actress. Mary Tyler Moore: After All airs Friday at 10 pm ET/9 Central. SundanceTV on Saturday will air all 24 episodes of the final season of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, leading up, of course, to Episode 724 – “The Last Show,” which concludes with the most famous group hug in TV history. The all-day marathon begins at 6:00 a.m. ET/5:00 a.m. Central.

PBS said its stations will rebroadcast Mary Tyler Moore: A Celebration in honor of the TV icon. The documentary, which first aired in 2015, commemorates Moore and her 50-plus-year career, and features names such as Dick Van Dyke, Betty White, and Valerie Harper, who actually were involved in Moore’s life and work. Check local PBS stations for details.

CBS said this afternoon it will air a special one-hour CBS News tribute to Mary Tyler Moore, who died today at 80.

Gayle King will anchor Mary Tyler Moore: Love Is All Around, to air at 9 PM ET. And yes, Oprah Winfrey will be among those who weigh in, though she was not involved in any of Moore’s iconic TV series and there are still plenty of people around who were. Some of those presumably will participate in the special, though CBS News did not name any of them.

CBS took guff in some quarters today when it briefly interrupted its daytime schedule for Scott Pelley to report that Moore had died. Moore was a huge CBS star, including her roles as Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show in the 1960s, and as the single woman with a career in TV journalism on The Mary Tyler Moore Show in the ’70s.

CBS News said the special will “mine CBS’ vast archives ” and include “interviews with Oprah Winfrey, newsmakers, admirers and others.”

Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer of the CBS special.

There are few very few TV series that have stayed with me. Before cable you watched whatever the 3 networks produced... many of those series don't pass the mustard of time. (IMHO) Mary Tyler Moore still does hold up. It seems inconsequential now but a single woman, who had her own apartment, and wasn't working until she found a man was radical! lol I watched MTM through its tenor on TV, from the pilot to its group hug ending.

Ms. Moore comic brilliance in many respects was under appreciated. Few comedy sitcoms made me laugh but Mrs. Moore show at times had me in tears. In short ol' girl was a fool, on the level of Lucy Ball and Carol Bernnet. morning song posting: "Chuckles The Clown" lol lol lol Another revolutionary thing about MTM show was the writing ( show writers avoided predictable punch line) and the symbiotic relationship the cast had. Cloris Leachman remembers Mrs. Moore as sweet, kind and tender.

RIP Mary Tyler Moore https://www.youtube.com/w...1GC6yXZ4e4

p.s. I hate capri pants but Mary Tyler Moore could wore the hell out of some capri's on the Dick Van Dyke Show. lol

As a son of a professional, activist mother growing up in the 70's, MTM helped reinforce the image of intelligent, dynamic working women that I saw at home. That was as important for boys as it was for girls to see that on TV.

Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore were building blocks for smart comedy on the tube.

Blessings to an icon who changed popular culture in profound ways.

My mother was a big fan of Mary Tyler Moore. I think a lot of women from the 60's and 70's, were.

A couple months ago NPR aired a rebroadcast of a interview that they did with Mary(from the mid 90's). It was pretty good.


Anyway, may she rest in peace. rose

I thought she went into a remission there for a while, after reports of her being on her last weeks. That was a few years ago. But that's a dangerous area.

Yep, Valerie is still hanging in there.

She was another actress that my mom was a fan of. I think she (Valerie) was one of the first actresses that i had a crush on(as a kid).

Anyway, positive thoughts and prayers to her.

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

A bit from the Dick Van Dyke Show. Rob thinks they got the wrong baby and calls the other couple over to talk about it. A classic bit from a show well ahead of its time.

Thanks Hudson for posting the timeline of tributes to Mary Tyler Moore. I watched all, except 20/20... Katie Couric annoys me. The CBS this Morning did a lovely memoriam of Ms. Moore as well.

I understand ABC broke into programming to tell of Ms. Moores' death also... it was appropriate to do so. (IMHO)
