I thought this was a great show with much potential. It wasn't even given a chance. Though the character was less likable than the two previous BOB incarnations, he was still funny. It didn't hit the mark right off, but then again, NEWHART, another classic, didn't really hit its mark until the second or third season. Anyone know where any tapes of this lost gem are?????? I keep hoping they might release it, what with the recent release of many one season wonders like Lotsa Luck, Good Morning World, Gidget and others. I thought the show was good in that it had a more farcical flavor than The Bob Newhart Show. And WHAT A GREAT CAST. Ruth Kobart, John Cygan, Christine Dunsford, who was hilarious, Timothy Fall, Andrew Bilgore, Cynthia Stevenson, Lisa Kudrow, Tom Poston, Dorothy Lyman, Steve Lawrence, Dick Martin. I loved it when he played poker with his buddies. When they fired the entire cast and replaced them with Betty White and Jere Burns, it just lost all of its loopy charm.
