Carol Burnett remembers Mary Tyler Moore as a television 'pioneer'
As Hollywood continues to mourn the loss of television icon Mary Tyler Moore, who died on Wednesday at the age of 80, Carol Burnett is the latest to add her voice to the mix of those paying tribute.
“She will be so missed. She was a pioneer on television and also one of the sweetest, nicest people I ever knew,” Burnett said in a statement. Burnett’s The Carol Burnett Show once shared a home with The Mary Tyler Moore Show, both airing during CBS’s Saturday line-up in the 1970s.
