Classic TV themed network Decades will pay tribute to the legendary Mary Tyler Moore in an 84-episode marathon of her classic 1970-77 CBS sitcom, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” It begins on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 1 p.m. ET and airs through Monday, Feb. 5 at 7 a.m. ET. Moore passed away on Wednesday at the age of 80.

Decades will also feature Mary Tyler Moore on “The Dick Cavett Show,” where she appeared in 1986. It will be telecast on Friday, Feb. 3 at 8 a.m. ET (into another episode of the Cavett talker, featuring Valerie Harper).
