The show, called "Mary", was a short-lived program that only aired for three weeks in the
fall of 1978. Mary Tyler Moore did comedy routines and musical numbers. Letterman
played the announcer and appeared in skits with regulars Swoozie Kurtz and Michael
He didn't find success through "Mary", but it did give him the exposure he needed to earn
a guest spot on "The Tonight Show" which eventually led to his hosting the show in
Carson's absence.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
