Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) and Rhoda (Valerie Harper) prepare to set the broadcasting industry on its ear by producing their own TV special. The plan was to come up with an erudite, intelligent round-robin discussion program. But that was before Mary and Rhoda found out that the stars of their little opus would be the two most over inflated egos in all Minneapolis: Ted Baxter (Ted Knight) and Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White). Capped by a hilariously cynical denouement, "The Co-Producers" originally aired on January 19, 1974.
