Sue Ann Nivens, the Happy HomemakerHappy Homemaker -  The local Minneapolis TV cooking show produced by WJM-TV Channel 12 on the situation comedy MARY TYLER MOORE/CBS/1970-77. The star of "The Happy Homemaker" is Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White), a promiscuous female in her late 40s who uses her culinary expertise to create such savory delights as a multi-tiered low-cal wedding cake with only 82 calories. When not on the air, Sue Ann cruised the hallways of WJM-TV looking for a man to seduce.

A frequent target of Sue Ann's affections was blustery news producer Lou Grant (Ed Asner), who finally succumbed to Sue Ann's man-hungry ways, much to his regret.

At the close of each segment of "The Happy Homemaker Show," Sue Ann signed-off with such life-affirming sentiments as "A woman who does a good job in the kitchen is sure to reap her rewards in other parts of the house."
