Combine the Mary Tyler Moore Show numbers with the Dick Van Dyke Show numbers (on which she co-starred) and you can see why MTM is receiving the SAG Lieftime Achievement Award this year.

It also helps that Mary Tyler Moore promoted its supporting cast more than any sitcom had before. Five of Mary's co-stars won Emmys (Ed Asner, Ted Knight, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, and Betty White). Only Cheers had so many different winners, but it ran four years longer. Mary's generosity in giving her co-stars screen time -- unlike, say, Lucille Ball -- must have made her popular with the rank and file in Hollywood.

Cool charts. Must have taken a long time!


You forgot the #1 Most Emmys of ALL TIME awarded to a television series: "Seasame Street" (as of 2009, won 118 Emmys).
