The show was famous for the quality and depth of its writing, particularly the attention and care given to supporting characters such as Lou Grant (Creator/EdwardAsner), Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper), Murray Slaughter (Gavin [=MacLeod=]), Ted Baxter (Ted Knight), and Phyllis Lindstrom (Cloris Leachman). Even "Happy Homemaker" Sue Ann Nivens (Creator/BettyWhite), who could have been played as merely two-dimensional, was given some measure of depth. This was also one of the first series to feature a single woman as the main character, and to focus on her career rather than her love life. As originally scripted, Mary was to have been recently divorced. This was considered too controversial in 1970 (plus, in a case of classic ExecutiveMeddling, network brass was afraid the viewers would think that Moore's ''[[Series/TheDickVanDykeShow Dick Van Dyke Show]]'' character, Laura Petrie, had gotten divorced from Rob), so her BackStory was changed to one of rebuilding her life after a broken engagement.
