Added DiffLines:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: A rather apt example! In one episode they hire a former Olympic swimmer to be the first female sportscaster for the network...unfortunately, her reports are ''only'' about professional swimming, and it takes a lot of cajoling from Lou to get her to report on more popular sports like baseball and football.

Added DiffLines:

* StandardOfficeSetting: Many scenes take place at the office of the ''The Six O'Clock News'' where Mary works. Mary has a desk in the bullpen, while Lou Grant and other higher-ups have their own offices with glass windows facing into the bullpen.

* MsFanservice: A number of episodes, particularly in the early seasons, contrived excuses for Moore to display [[ShesGotLegs her celebrated legs]]. Parodied by Magazine/{{MAD}}, which had Mary declare "time to show off my legs!" and change into a tennis outfit for no reason.

** [[Series/TheTonightShow Johnny Carson]] attends one of Mary's dinner parties. Unfortunately, a [[BigBlackout power outage]] strikes just before he arrives, so [[TheFaceless we only get to hear his voice]].

* TakeThat: The writers would sometimes put in disparaging references to the cheesy late-'60s sitcoms this show was rebelling against, including ''Series/GilligansIsland'', ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' (re-named [[{{Expy}} "The Clancy Clan"]]) and co-creator Allan Burns's own OldShame ''MyMotherTheCar''.

** If you look closely at the WJM program grid on the wall of the Station Manager's office, you'll see ''MyMotherTheCar'' is shown several times a day. This is an in-joke to the OldShame shared between Brooks and Burns.
*** In the episode "The Co-Producers" Lou mentions that the current Station Manager scheduled ''MyMotherTheCar'' reruns at 7am so he'd have something to watch while eating breakfast.
