Bob Newhart

Having given up cable television in 2004, when I discovered I was only using it to watch old movies that I could just buy for much cheaper, I wasn't aware that Bob Newhart was still in business. Apparently he is!

I'm just the right age that his best-known character for me is the Vermont innkeeper who is never quite accepted as a local even after a decade. He's been on a more recent series, though; and perhaps more famously on an older one. Of course he also did a great deal of quasi-Vaudeville sketch comedy, which was very often good.
