TV Bulletin Board (Jan. 26)

All hail the cast of The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-77).

Sunday night's 13th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (7 p.m. central, 8 eastern on TBS and TNT) will reunite the surviving cast members of The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

They'll present SAG's trophy for Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series, an honor that didn't exist during MTM's Emmy-lauded seven-season run on CBS (1970-77). This year's nominees are Desperate Housewives, The Office, Ugly Betty, Entourage and Weeds.

Scheduled to reunite are Mary Tyler Moore, Ed Asner, Georgia Engel, Gavin MacLeod, Betty White, Valerie Harper and Cloris Leachman. Alas, the late, great Ted Knight couldn't make it.

Seinfeld won the first SAG award in this category in 1995. The Jan. 28 ceremony also has seven other TV and five feature film competitions. Other presenters include Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, America Ferrera, William Shatner, Forest Whitaker, Ashton Kutcher, Annette Bening, Patrick Dempsey, Matthew Perry and Kyra Sedgwick.

SAG's Life Achievement Award goes to Julie Andrews.

***CBS' Two and a Half Men has booked Allison Janney for her first post-West Wing acting appearance. She'll play an Internet dating service embellisher who goes out with fellow embellisher Alan Harper (series regular Jon Cryer).
