Rhoda Coming to MeTV Network in July 2013; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 24, 2013)

Rhoda
The MeTV Network is reuniting Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) and Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper)! Beginning Monday, July 8, The Mary Tyler Moore Show spin-off series Rhoda will join the MeTV line-up and will air weeknights at 9:30PM. This means both The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda, will air weeknights back-to-back beginning at 9:00PM. The addition of Rhoda will push back The Dick Van Dyke Show from 9:30 to 10PM, while The Odd Couple also gets pushed from 10PM to 10:30PM. The odd show out will be Hogan's Heroes, which was airing at 10:30pm, but will now be off the line-up. These changes are last minute additions to the already announced Summer of Me line-up on MeTV, which we announced before. No other changes will be made. Rhoda is a surprise and welcome addition, though. Relive the comedy and sometimes drama of two best friends who met in Minneapolis, shared an apartment, as well as years of laughter, tears and everything in between. Mary and Rhoda are together again on MeTV!

Rhoda was last seen on AmericanLife TV and FamilyNet a few years back. It was paired with another Mary Tyler Moore spin-off, Phyllis. While MeTV won't be airing Phyllis, we still get Rhoda on MeTV. This is a great way to remember Valerie Harper while she is still with us (as you know she is suffering from a rare, terminal cancer). Stay with us for continued updates!
