50 Years Later, 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' Still Holds Up

9/19/2011 8:18pm EDT
'The Dick Van Dyke Show'
It’s almost impossible to believe, but it’s true: ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’ premiered on CBS 50 years ago next month. Yes, it was half a century ago that America was first introduced to the Petries’ living room and the office of Alan Brady’s writing staff.

What’s even more amazing is that the show still holds up better than ever. ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’ was one of the first sitcoms to depict a husband and wife who actually had the hots for each other – even though they supposedly slept in separate beds. (It was obvious that wasn’t always the case. I mean, they had a kid and everything.)...

Classic TV Comedy Icons: Where Are They Now?

Hot In Cleveland
In the season premiere of TV Land’s ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ Betty White’s character, Elka, found herself in jail. A slim cell mate who called her “fresh meat” turned around and turned out to be none other than Mary Tyler Moore. The cameo was more a wink at the two icons’ history together, with the characters noting it had been 33 years since they’d seen each other – exactly as long as it had been since Moore and White worked together on ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show.’

This sequence made me wonder – what are all the iconic TV actors from the glory days up to? Aside from this cameo, Moore re-eme...

Character actor Harold Gould, best known for playing Rhoda Morgenstern's dad in 'Rhoda' and Rose's boyfriend Miles on 'The Golden Girls,' has died at age 86. Gould died last Saturday of prostate cancer.

He memorably portrayed Rhoda's father on 'Mary Tyler Moore' and reprised that role in Valerie Harp...

Betty White Proves There's Life After 40 In Hollywood

Betty White Hot In Cleveland
For years, a large number of entertainers have literally hung on to the belief that once wrinkles became their reality, public interest would decrease.

Many swore by the pseudo fountain of youth, doing everything from smearing their faces with snake venom to maintaining discrete semi-yearly appointments with their plastic surgeons to make sure their body parts refrained from sagging or to get their faces pushed and pinned back securely (sorry for the mental picture), all to insure that they would land a major role before the fresh faced 25-year olds.

At 88-years-old, Betty White has the sizzling hot career that most 20-year-old starlets could only dream of. Refusing to sit back and enjoy her “golden years,” White is one of the busiest actresses in Hollywood today. When she’s not starring opposite America’s sweetheart Sandra Bullock in The Proposal, getting slammed into a puddle of mud for a Snickers, or spotted as dim-witted Rose Nylund in reruns of “Golden Girls,” White tirelessly fights for animal rights and accepts countless lifetime achievement awards. It’s no wonder that many demanded to see the funny lady host “Saturday Night Live...

Television icon and seven-time Emmy Award winner Mary Tyler Moore will guest-star on NBC's drama "Lipstick Jungle" in a multi-episode arc starting in the season premiere on Wednesday, September 24.
