It’s been 33 years since Mary Richards and Sue Ann Nivens have seen each other. NO, wait! That’s my TV addiction speaking. It’s been 33 years since Mary Tyler Moore and Betty White have appeared on-screen together. Whichever version you prefer, that’s about to change.

In the biggest Ohio reunion not involving LeBron James, Mary Tyler Moore and Betty White are set to reteam on the small screen for the first time in 33 years.
The 88-year-old “Golden Girls” star hasn’t shared the screen with Moore since “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” concluded in 1977.
The duo will reunite on the season premiere of White’s TV Land series “Hot in Cleveland,” deadline.com reports.
Though the 73-year-old’s role has not yet been announced, she will reportedly fit into the storyline from the end of last season that saw White’s character getting arrested.
The episode will be filmed in the same CBS studio where “Mary Tyler Moore” was taped, CBC News reports.
“Hot in Cleveland” received a 20-episode order for a second season this past July, following a 10-episode debut that cashed in on White’s resurgence.
The show returns Jan. 19 on TV Land.
