The late Mary Tyler Moore will receive her own TV tribute Thursday night on CBS.
Moore died Wednesday at the age of 80, after suffering cardiopulmonary arrest brought on by pneumonia. The actress was a true pioneer throughout her career, paving the way for confident single women on television through her beloved Mary Richards on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Her career began on The Dick Van Dyke Show where she was just as funny as her co-star, Dick Van Dyke. After The Mary Tyler Moore Show, for which she won three Emmys, she excelled in drama with her chilling performance in Ordinary People, which earned her her first and only Oscar nomination.
Moore's incredible career will be honored tonight in a new CBS special called Mary Tyler Moore: Love Is All Around.
Hosted by Gayle King, the special will feature "original reporting and mine CBS' vast archives to present the story of the pioneering actress' life and career," says CBS. "In addition, the special will include interviews with Oprah Winfrey, newsmakers, admirers and others expressing their thoughts about Moore's profound impact on acting and how women were portrayed in the media, as well as her work outside of entertainment."
Moore had a special relationship with CBS considering both The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Mary Tyler Moore Show both aired on CBS, as well as The Mary Tyler Moore Hour, Mary and New York News.
Mary Tyler Moore: Love Is All Around will air Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. If you cannot watch the special on television, you can live stream it through CBS All Access. The streaming service is $5.99 per month though you can get started with a free trial.
You can also stream Mary Tyler Moore: Love Is All Around on the CBS app as long as you have a subscription. The special is expected to be available for streaming on Friday.
