'Hot In Cleveland' Reunites Cast Of 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' (VIDEO)

For the first part of its two-part season finale, "Hot in Cleveland' staged a reunion for "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," bringing together all of the women from the cast. Of course, Betty White and Georgia Engel are already a part of the "Cleveland" cast, so they just had to reunite with Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman.

In the world of "Cleveland," the women were part of a championship bowling team that split up 50 years ago. After that breakup, which got ugly, they lost touch with one another. There were, of course, plenty of nods to their old show, which aired from 1970 to 1977 on CBS Saturday nights.

After everyone but Moore reunited, the women feared that she hadn't come. But then they saw her at the table already. "Looks like she made it after all!” Elka said.

Reminiscing about their bowing team -- or their classic show -- Harper's character said, "We were the best there ever was."

"Every Saturday night all eyes were on us," added Moore's character.

Valerie Bertinelli said that working with the iconic "MTM" cast was amazing. "No one went back to their dressing rooms when they weren't in a scene (on that day)," she said. "We all stayed in the audience and we were all watching, and we all had our little camera phones out, filming everything. It was pretty spectacular.”

And perhaps there's another "MTM" reunion coming this fall. Valerie Harper was recently announced as a part of the new cast of "Dancing With the Stars." Will her former costars show up to cheer her on?
