The Bob Newhart show had a better theme song

Newhart’s made me want to slit my wrist

Watching both shows I can honestly say that both where insanely boring, to be honest I found Bob Newhart funny twice; once was him in a parody of Braveheart and the other involved Conan O’Brien.

What pisses me off about Bob Newhart is he”™s a super ugly dude but had the hottest wives. Also, On The Bob Newhart Show the receptionist, Carol Kester played by Marcia Wallace annoyed the piss out of me.  I”™m not a fan of Marcia Wallace, her teeth that annoy the fuck out of me.

The only real entertaining thing about “Newhart” was the characters Larry, Darryl and Darryl. Three brothers, who live in a shack the two Darryls never, speak (until the final episode) and the series finale Newhart is struck by golf ball and collapses. The screen goes black then a light is turned on, and viewers see Dr. Bob Hartley in bed, saying, “Honey, you won’t believe the dream I just had.” Emily (Suzanne Pleshette, Hartley’s wife from The Bob Newhart Show), turns on the light and rolls over to speak with him. The bedroom is a recreation from The Bob Newhart Show. (see below)
