Which of these Television Actresses do you like best or is your favorite? You can vote for more then one.
Mary Tyler Moore
I like them all and think they are al good. but For me it's a toss up between Mary, Bea, Jean
P.S: Originally I had Candace Bergen down But she does not really fit well with the other Nine so I edited out her name and put in Shirley Booth instead. But I can not Edit the Poll.

I like all of them except Candace Bergen.Nothing against her but she is not in the same class as the others.And all of them,maybe with the exception of again Candace Bergen put modern or todays 'actresses' to shame in every way.I guess if I had to pick one it would be Mary Tyler Moore,but again most of the actresses you listed are so good.
Thank You. I do agree with you after looking over the poll again and I do agree that Candace does not fit with the other Nine Laddies so I edited out her name and put in Shirley Booth but I can not edit the Poll option, Is there a way to do it?
That why I decided to to do a multiple answer becaue I knew it would be a tough one.

Elizabeth Montgomery. She's gorgeous and the star of one of my favorite shows. Lucille Ball would be my 2nd choice.
Lucille Ball is my pick with Elizabeth Montgomery a very close second.

Bea Arthur is my number one pick. I loved her as Maude Finlay and as Dorothy Zbornack. Second, I love Lucille Ball as Lucy Ricardo.

I voted Elizabeth Montgomery since I have seen her show more than the other characters' shows ... combined!

Bea Arthur, hands down.:)

Bea Arthur! :D

I went with Elizabeth Montgomery because she had done several tv movies which were excellent. I think that as a well rounded actress she's way above the rest of them (although they too are very good!):)

I voted for Lucille Ball, Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, Carol Burnett, and Elizabeth Montgomery. :)

Lucille Ball-Never much cared for her or her 1950's-70's sitcoms. "I Love Lucy" was a dumb show. Lucy (the character, not the actress) was a no talent always wanting to get into "the act". Actually, they could have killed off Lucy and made it a better show. Ricky was one cool cat. Fred was the old school grandpa dude who went to ballgames and the track. Ethel? Well, she was sort of a b*tch. Moving on.
Beatrice Arthur-Did not like Maude very much. It seemed that Maude was always mad, always yelling, with a wimpering simp of a husband. The neighbors (the dude from Diffrent Strokes and the Blanche Devereaux lady were annoying too. the only good thing that came from that show was Adrian Barbeau's jugs and the drunk ass English housekeeper (Mrs. Norgatuck?).
Golden Girls was the best show she was in, and to me she was the lead character (Estelle Getty was the star of the show!). But this was an ensamble show, and was written by the same person who did SOAP, and knew how to write great comedy interwoven
Mary Tyler Moore- MTM was/is a beautiful woman, and she has been great in just about everything she has been in. My favorite was her about 25 in those tight Capri pants. MMMMM, Baby. Seemed stupid that her and her husband character slept in different beds. You know, this was the early 1960's, and the characters were MARRIED!!
Carol Burnett- Eh. She was pretty funny in a Jerry Lewis sort of way. I watched her show for Tim Conway. She was also, sorry, funny looking. I think that was part of her persona that she was funny looking. I feel for her because she had an addicted daughter who she went through hell with, to see her get clean and doing well, just to die of terminal cancer at a young age (wiki: Carrie Hamilton). That's awful.
Shirley Booth-Before my time. Saw Hazel once or twice in reruns. She was a maid, or something.
Jean Stapleton-Edith Bunker was one of the most iconic characters of a very iconic program. Once I saw an interview with her and Carroll O'Connor just before he died and she is totally opposite of Edith. Very urbane and well spoken. Seemed like a very nice lady.
Jane Wyatt-Didn't she play Spock's mother on Star Trek?
Valerie Harper-Probably the best character in the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Nice looking lady though. Hated when Rhoda would complain to Mare' about the lack of men out there, with me going, "Rhoda. your hot. Quit talking to Mary and get that cute butt out there. It's only 1975 once damnit!"
Elizabeth Montgomery-Beautiful woman. Died a painful death much before her time. I hate to be negative, but never cared for Bewitched that much. Her mother is a b*tch, doesn't like Darren, punks poor Darren each episode, with Darren pissed off that he can't retaliate back. What made that show funny were the recurring characters, Dr. Bombay (loved that actor), the senile aunt (Esmerelda), and especially Uncle Arthur. Paul Lynde was hilarious. Even in the crapfest film Bewitched, the only funny part was when Steve Carell did an Uncle Arthur, Paul Lynde perfect.
Linda Lavin Known for the show Alice, a harmless but slightly braindead work comedy. Polly Holliday was the funny one of the show. Mel was a great foil. Vera? Well Vera was OK. My grandmother was named Vera and grandma and this character are the only ones I know with that name.
But Lavin was basically a straight-(wo)man to the other zany characters.
Alice seemed to have been on the air about 5 years longer than it should have been. It was not very realistic.
* Mel's Diner in the show was never busy. In the original film, Alice was busting her ass, getting yelled at, dealing with impatient customers, you know, like a real job. It seemed like Alice and the other two waitresses were hanging out talking, not doing that much. I used to wait tables, and there is usually always something to do and it is tiring work.
* Alice and the other two waitresses were always friends and were always hanging out with each other and doing stuff. Not that way in real life.
* With the exceptions of Flo and Belle, Alice and Vera stuck around nine years. Nine years working in a crappy hash house?
