Since then she’s appeared on The Love Boat (Emily Stubing), Brooklyn Bridge (Sophie Berger), That ‘70s Show (Grandma Forman), Touched by an Angel (Sophie), The Drew Carey Show (Beulah Carey), and Gilmore Girls (Marilyn Gilmore), among many others. Fun fact: Ross just turned 88! The Odd Couple airs Mondays at 9:30pm on CBS.
