Actress Mary Tyler Moore accepts the Life Achievement Award onstage during the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium on January 29, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
Mary Tyler Moore spent many of her television years on CBS and now the network is going to remember the legend, who passed away Wednesday, with a primetime special Thursday hosted by CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King.
The CBS news special, titled Mary Tyler Moore: Love is All Around and airing Thursday at 9/8c, will feature original reporting on the star as well as diving into the vast archives from her years on the network in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-66) and The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-77). Moore also starred in CBS series The Mary Tyler Moore Hour (1979), Mary (1985-86) and New York News (1995). The special will include interviews with Oprah Winfrey and other newsmakers and admirers who will share their fondness for the multiple Emmy-winner.
Moore won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 1964 and 1966 for The Dick Van Dyke Show and would win three more in the same category for her self-titled sitcom. She won another Emmy in 1993 for playing a baby broker in the television movie, Stolen Babies as well as the Golden Globe for her work in the feature film, Ordinary People (for which she also received a Best Actress Oscar nomination in 1980) and two Tonys for Whose Life Is It Anyway? (1980) and Joe Egg (1985).
