Keeping in mind that our TV Crossover Hall of Fame inductee this month is Louuuuuuuu......

I guess because he works for the Free Press, Martin F. Kohn picked up on a possible future connection between 'Gilmore Girls' and 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show'/'Lou Grant':

On Tuesday night’s episode of “Gilmore Girls” Yale senior and aspiring journalist Rory (played by Alexis Bledel) mentioned the newspapers to which she’s applied for jobs, and one of them was the Free Press.

If Rory does end up at the Free Press, she’ll be following in the footsteps of another noted TV character, Lou Grant (Ed Asner), who toiled here before he ran the TV news operation on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and the Los Angeles Tribune on “Lou Grant.”

Personally, I'd rather she worked at the Trib. Or, if she wanted to stay closer to home (Stars Hollow, Ct.), then she should go to work for the NY Ledger.
