About The Bob Newhart Show

The Bob Newhart Show was part of CBS’ highly successful Saturday night lineup which also featured The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Carol Burnett Show and All in the Family. Another connection to The Mary Tyler Moore Show was that The Bob Newhart Show was produced by the same team that made that series a success. Bob Newhart plays Dr. Robert Hartley, a psychologist living in Chicago with his wife Emily, a schoolteacher. His neighbor, Howard Borden, is a divorced airplane navigator. One of Bob’s best friends is Dr. Jerry Robinson, an orthodontist that works on the same floor as Bob. There’s also Bob and Jerry’s receptionist Carol Kester as well as a long list of patients of Bob’s such as Elliot Carlin, Lillian Bakerman, Emil Peterson and Victor Gianelli.
