* TheAlcoholic: While played for laughs in ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow'', the tone becomes serious here, as Lou's drinking problem at times is referenced. At one time, it becomes deadly serious when he is arrested for drunk driving and has to attend a drinking driver's school to get his license back.

Added DiffLines:

* ReassignmentBackfire: Averted. For violating a newspaper policy, Rossi is assigned to the dullest story Lou can think of -- profiling a minor state official, who commutes between Los Angeles and Sacramento (he even admits to his subject that he's being punished). But then Rossi discovers that the official is a bigamist, with a family in each city...and gloats that his story is "going to write itself." But in the end, he can't bring himself to ruin two families' lives, and instead turns in a story which Lou dismisses as drivel.

* BookEnds: The opening titles, which begin with a bird in a tree, which is then cut down. And so, we see the process (though, not the ''whole'' process, mind you) of how trees are turned into newspapers. The titles end with one ''Los Angeles Tribune'' reader using a piece of the day's newspaper she just finished reading to line her bird's cage.

After the GrandFinale of ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow,'' Lou is now in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles working as the city editor for the fictional Los Angeles Tribune. He manages to keep his character, in both senses, for five seasons of this. The other regulars were general assignment reporters Joe Rossi (Robert Walden) and Billie Newman (Linda Kelsey)(Kelsey joined the show in the fourth episode, replacing Rebecca Balding, who had portrayed general assignment reporter Carla Mardigian); managing editor Charles Hume (Mason Adams), an old friend of Lou's who convinced him to move from Minneapolis to Los Angeles; assistant city editor Art Donovan (Jack Bannon); photographer Dennis Price (Daryl Anderson), usually referred to as "Animal," and the Tribune's widowed, patrician publisher Margaret Jones Pynchon (Nancy Marchand).
