Well if they made the casting today it would obviously be a very different cast since those folks are just too old now.

Sadly, Georgette would also be a trumper. Their kid would disown them for this.
Murray would have divorced and married a man.

Mary would finally marry the man of her dreams, and start a family. She would even give birth to two sons. Her life was anything but ordinary.
Sadly though, one of the sons would die in a freak boating accident. As much as she tried, because of the the same affliction which first surfaced upon Chuckles The Clown's death, Mary would not be able to shed a tear over her dead son, and become even more distant with her remaining son.
In fact, she will not make it after all.

Mary would be the Executive Producer and star of a daytime chat show on her very own network. Sue Anne would have her cooking/magazine show on Mary's network. Pompous ass Ted would have his Dr. Ted show, despite not having a real doctorate. Rhoda is a fashion and lifestyle writer, contributing editor and frequent guest on Mary's show.

Mary would have to deal with her alcohol addiction and her eating disorder(s) openly on the show - and she'd probably attend multiple twelve-step programs.
In that respect, the show might look more like Mom.
Mary Richards might smoke openly and feel free to curse.
But the biggest difference would be Mary would have to struggle much more financially - she wouldn't have all those designer clothes and she might not own a car. She'd need to have one or more roommates.
She might have to take a part-time job to supplement her income from the TV station. And she'd likely have much less job security today - she'd be changing jobs every few years or working freelance through periods of unemployment.
Mary would likely be divorced or be a veteran of several long-term romantic relationships by age 30. Mary also might be struggling to find care for her elderly parents.

She might be more likely to smoke weed.

Weatherman Gordy Howard would be killed by building security in a minor incident that escalated. Antifa would set fire to the WMT-TV building. Ted would go on TV and do a special about the widespread systemic racism at the station. Lou Grant would be fired, and then doxed on Twitter.
It would come out in a later episode that Gordy tried to grab the security guard's gun while drunk. He also had a history of domestic violence, and had lethal doses of fentanyl and crack cocaine in his bloodstream at the time of the incident.

The Dinner Party
Congressional Representative Margaret Geddes, a vegan would be horrified at Mary for serving veal.
But Geddes would become slightly drunk and decide to forgive Mary, since Mary obviously didn't plan or cook the meal.
Geddes a lesbian would decide to stay over and scissor with Mary on her pull-out bed.
Later that year Geddes and Mary would be seen at Michfest together shortly before they ended their May-December romance.
(Geddes would be played by actor Holland Taylor with Sarah Paulson playing the part of Mary Richards.)

It is noticeable if you watch the old show how eating habits of thin women have changed. Mary frequently has a cheeseburger or bacon and eggs etc.

The year this show went off the air is the beginning of a huge spike in obesity rates in the US.
