I find the Bob Newhart Show way way way more depressing. Mrs. eja theorizes it's because he's a therapist, hence there are more problems on the show.  I theorize the characters are in many ways more pathetic and singular.  I sorta hope it gets better the way Newhart got better in Season 3 after they wrote Kirk off the show

Mrs. Saltlover likes Newhart more, although feels she hasnít seen enough Bob Newhart Show to form a conclusive opinion.  However, she feels that Newhart has better supporting roles, and also with the inn set-up allowed for more entertaining single-episode characters.  We especially like George and Stephanie.

Also, the Henry Mancini theme music is first rate for Newhart.

eja jr the other day was listening to the Bob Newhart Show theme song and said "I think I could play this on my saxophone" and I thought "Omg. I have the single awesomest kid in the history of time. Move over Jesus. The #1 spot has been claimed."

Tp for an off the wall thread.  I was too young to watch the original show, I only saw reruns, but I think it was a more interesting show to me.

I used to watch the original show. If I am not mistaken it always played right after the Mary Tyler Moore Show. That was a quality hour of television.

Ok. That does it. Bob's Tv wife Emily (actress Suzanne Plescette) drives me nuts. Borderline ruins the show. Just a bossy passive aggressive ditz character.

Possibly my least favorite TV wife ever up there with Rozanne, who was at least sassy and clever and sooommmeeetimes tough.

She is almost as bad as Raymond's mom.

There. I said it. I finally said it.

It turned out it was all The Bob Newhart show in the end so it's a moot point.
