His family moved here in the late 1930’s, and Daily attended Lane Tech High School in the city. He worked his way up the show business ladder by doing stand-up and music for clubs in the area, attended the Goodman Theatre School and worked as a floor manager for a local TV station, Wmaq. It was through those connections that he met his future co-star Bob Newhart, who was beginning his stand-up career as well.

HOLSHOW1: Barbara Eden
The actress, who first gained wide fame as receptionist Carol Kester on 'The Bob Newhart Show" in the 1970s -- and later grew her fan base as the voice of Edna Krabappel on Fox's "The Simpsons," which earned her an Emmy -- died Friday, Oct. 25.
"She was in the hospital and was kind of getting up," comedy icon Newhart tells Zap2it, "and her sister called Ginny (Newhart's wife) and me to ask us to call Marcia and help build her up. The next thing, we went up to Seattle to visit my daughter and my new granddaughter, and we found out she was gone. We had no idea it was that serious."
A recent first-time Emmy winner for CBS' "The Big Bang Theory," Newhart has fond memories of how Wallace came to be a part of the long-popular
Feldon and Kopell were also part of The Hollywood Show, a two day gathering of favorite TV and movie stars to meet fans and sign autographs. The next show in Chicagoland will be at the Hilton Rosemont on September 7th and 8th, 2013 (details below the article). The Show will have over 30 celebrities in attendance, including Barbara Eden and Bill Daily (“I Dream of Jeannie”); Tippi Hedren (“The Birds”); Barry Livingston, Stanley Livingston and Tina Cole
Loni Anderson is much like her character on Wkrp – luminous, intelligent and with a unique perspective. She climbed the show business ladder herself, after having a first marriage and a child in her teens. After that marriage ended before her 21st birthday, she finished college at the University of Minnesota and started an acting career, taking roles on stage and in local and national commercials. After moving to Los Angeles in 1975, she dyed her jet black hair to blonde, and began a series of high profile appearances on familiar dramas and comedies of the era, including “The Bob Newhart Show” and “Police Woman.
Years later, Eden and co-star Bill Daily reunited for two made-for-tv movies -- I Dream of Jeannie: 15 Years Later and I Still Dream of Jeannie -- but Hagman opted not to take part. Eden guested on Hagman's Dallas series in the show's 14th season, playing Jr Ewing's former lover -- a nod to the actors' previous roles.
Eden, Hagman, and Daily have reunited numerous times on-camera and in public, giving fans an opportunity
Hallmark Channel presents 12 hours of evidence Sunday (May 27) with a 40th-anniversary marathon of "The Bob Newhart Show," a 1972-78 staple of the CBS Saturday-night lineup that included such other classics as "All in the Family," "M*A*S*H," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Carol Burnett Show."
Newhart's famously buttoned-down humor perfectly suited his role as Chicago psychologist Bob Hartley, whose office misadventures were balanced by his home life with wife Emily (Suzanne Pleshette).
"First, Hallmark is very classy and secondly, the show holds up," Newhart tells Zap2it of his pleasure about this weekend's marathon. "It's enjoying a renaissance, and that's a tribute to the writing and performing. We didn't really go too much into the style of the era, which I think accounts for the longevity ... though in some scenes,
The Hollywood Celebrities & Memorabilia Show is a biannual event that brings celebrities to Chicago to meet, sign autographs and interact with their admirers. Every session has HollywoodChicago.com in attendance, and Joe Arce is also there to photograph all the celebs. The last show in September brought out classic TV and movie stars, who sat down for the following interviews.
Marcia Wallace of “The Bob Newhart Show” and “The Simpsons”
Marcia Wallace has created two memorable characters in TV history. As Carol Kester on “The Bob Newhart Show,” she traded quips with Dr. Bob Hartley (Newhart) for six seasons.
They included alums of his two iconic shows The Bob Newhart Show (Peter Bonerz, Bill Daily and Marcia Wallace), Newhart (Julia Duffy and Peter Scolari), as well as admirers like Tim Conway, Fred Willard, Don Rickles, and director James Burrows.
Our friends at Pop Culture Passionistas were on hand for the Archive of American Television. While there, they asked Newhart's pals about their favorite stories, what he should do next, and what people don't know about him with (not surprisingly) humorous results.
What do you think? His former costar Betty
From Don Rickles and Fred Willard to Marcia Wallace and Bill Daily, the stars came out to pay tribute to the legendary comedian. Everyone had wonderful things to say about the man who clearly not only influenced a generation of TV fans, but made a big impact on his friends and family.
We were honored to be at the event and spoke to the panelists on the red carpet. We asked them to tell us something no one knows about Bob. You may be surprised by some of the answers.
The series ran from 1965 to 1970 and starred Barbara Eden, Larry Hagman, Bill Daily and Hayden Rorke. The remake has been in development for quite some time and it was said that the studio had been having a hard time trying to make a contemporary take on the show and its, "pre-feminist notions." Callaghan, however, besides writing for United States of Tara, is also a noted playwright who has dealt with feminist themes in the past.
Filmmakers such Cormac and Marianne Wibberley, Rita Hsiao and Gurinder Chadha had been attached to the project throughout the years.
I Dream of Jeannie
Back in 1997, they teamed up for a CBS sitcom called George & Leo with Jason Bateman, Bess Meyer, Darryl Thierse, and Robyn Lively.
The series barely lasted a season but one episode featured cameos by 19 actors from previous Newhart and Hirsch shows -- Peter Bonerz, Oliver Clark, Bill Daily, John Fiedler, Jack Riley, and Marcia Wallace from The Bob Newhart Show; Billie Bird, Jane Carr, Harry Groener, and Tom Willett from Dear John; Julia Duffy, Tony Papenfuss, Tom Poston, William Sanderson, Peter Scolari, Todd Susman, and John Voldstad from Newhart; and Jeff Conaway and Marilu Henner from Taxi.
