The Dick Van Dyke Show is considered by fans and critics alike to be one of the best sitcoms in television history, as the series earned 25 Primetime Emmy nominations and won 15 Primetime Emmy Awards over its five seasons (1961–66). Over 158 half-hour episodes, the series followed the work and home life of Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke), head writer for the fictional comedy/variety series The Alan Brady Show, starring Alan Brady (Carl Reiner), with plots inspired by Carl Reiner’s real-life experiences as a writer for a live variety show, Your Show of Shows, and sketch-comedy series, Caesar’s Hour. Mary Tyler Moore portrayed Rob’s wife, Laura Petrie, and earned two Primetime Emmy Awards for her performance.
