Mary and Rhoda are together again. The nostalgia ME-TV Network just added the 1974-78 CBS comedy series "Rhoda" to its weeknight lineup airing right after "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," the landmark 1970-77 CBS sitcom which introduced Valerie Harper as Mary's bubbly window dresser neighbor. Harper was an overnight sensation as Rhoda, winning three Emmys for her work. The character was so popular, Harper got her own series, which found Rhoda leaving Minneapolis and returning home to New York. The series beat "MTM" in the ratings during the first season and Harper picked up her fourth Emmy for her brilliant comedic creation.
