Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Well, it's time again for another of Mary's disastrous dinner parties. This time, things fall apart when Lou's old girlfriend, Charlene, shows up with her new -- and much younger -- boyfriend. As Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) looks on helplessly (doesn't she always?), Lou (Ed Asner) hatches a scheme to make Charlene jealous. Janis Paige steps into the role of Charlene Maguire, played on two previous occasions by Sheree North. "Menage a Lou" originally aired on January 24, 1976.
