Personal Quote:

[As to why The Bob Newhart Show (1972) got canceled]: Because Bob Newhart didn't want to do it anymore. I said so the previous year, but nobody believed me. I'd had it. I felt burned out. It was more mental than anything. I kept saying, 'Didn't we do the same show in the second season?' See more »

Trivia:

Like Bill Cosby, Newhart has the ability to be funny without resorting to profanity. The closest Newhart comes is in his bit "The Driving Instructor," in which he comments, "...I don't suppose it is so damn funny". See more »
