Ed Asner played the heavy-boozing wisecracking sitcom news producer Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Then, in a spin-off series, Lou Grant suddenly kicked the bottle and became a serious editor at a big city newspaper, facing overwrought ethical dilemmas every week. Asner became the only actor to win Emmys for both Comedy and Drama playing the same character.
