Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Eileen Heckart makes the first of three series appearances as Mary's Aunt Flo, a celebrated -- and very outspoken -- foreign correspondent. At first thrilled to have a globetrotting celebrity in the newsroom, Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) and the rest of the staff quickly learn to resent Flo's incessant name-dropping and acerbic witticisms. Things come to a head when Flo squares off with newsroom boss Lou Grant (Ed Asner). "Mary's Aunt" first aired on October 18, 1975.
