1 I think the point was to show an "other side" to the Lou Grant character. Having lost his gig at WJM and the independent network news show he produced there he moved on to a more serious job at a newspaper and became a more serious guy. I also don't think he drank as much on this show as he did on MTM, when he was frequently drowning his sorrows (his divorce, bad ratings, etc.), and even ends up in bed with Sue Ann as a result once. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:22 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 It never made sense to claim that this was the Lou Grant we all knew from the MTM show. He was nearly nothing like that character. Took itself entirely too seriously from the beginning -- a great example of a "spinoff" that showcases the vulnerability of a character who can't stand on his or her own. -- Submitted By: (HistoryProf) on September 2, 2010, 8:53 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
