* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Poobala.com noted this trope on [[http://www.poobala.com/maryandrhoda.html their page]] for the show. It suggests that a happily married and contented Rhoda may've alienated some viewers who liked her original characterization (a DeadpanSnarker with low self-esteem and dating troubles) better. However, as they said, attempting to put Rhoda back the way she was on ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'' definitely made things worse.
-->"...people might not like the happy and contented Rhoda but they also don't necessarily want to see her happiness shattered and her marriage ruined!"

* ShippingBedDeath: One of the rare examples where the audience was fine with a TheyDo scenario, but the writers weren't. Their solution to their problem ended up killing the show with a divorce plotline that consumed the entire third season in a failed attempt at a ReTool.
