Ed Asner earned critical acclaim for his role as Grant and earned three Emmy awards for his performance during the show’s seven-season run.
The character actually proved to be so popular that after TMTMS ended its run in 1977, Asner was tapped to headline the spinoff series Lou Grant.

Asner would achieve even more recognition, with an additional two Emmy wins.
