Personal Quote:

[on the cancellation of The Bob Newhart Show (1972)]: I could see what was coming in situation comedy and I didn't want to be a part of it. If we'd gone another year, they'd have had a guy and two girls living in the apartment above us, a Martian living on the same floor next door to three girl detectives. The floor below us would have been occupied by a fraternity and a sorority. See more »
