In 1978, CBS was chasing the success it's former program director Fred Silverman had taken to NBC. 

These promos give you a pretty good idea that the network was still banking on the popularity of Mary Tyler Moore. 

Her beloved sitcom had ended it's run in 1977. Mary took a year off before pulling together a fascinating cast for a variety show. 

Talk show host David Letterman was among the regulars which included Swoosie Kurtz, Dick Shawn, Michael Keaton and Merrill Markoe. 

The only thing it never had was an audience! Scheduled for Sunday at 8pm, it was cancelled after just three programs had aired. 

CBS still had plenty of power in it's lineup with All in the Family, The Jeffersons, M*A*S*H, and the MTM spinoffs, Lou Grant and Rhoda. 

Also returning were the Waltons, Wonder Woman, Dallas, The Incredible Hulk, Good Times, Hawaii Five-0 and Barnaby Jones. 

They had high hopes for a new comedy, WKRP in Cincinnati, and two dramas, Kaz and The Paper Chase.
