Newhart Pulling out all the Stops
2 April 2015 | by masercotSee all my reviews

This is one of my favorite episodes: A telethon to save the station (a commercial station). Dick Louden (Bob Newhart) is reluctant to do it at first, but, as sleep deprivation and pride enter into the project, he eventually ends up running the camera and the tot-board AND hosting the telethon. As his mind goes from lack of sleep, the performance gets funnier and funnier. Stephanie, the Louden's maid, even sings for the telethon... an overly-cute version of Old Man River... which Dick says is, "just so beautiful".

Larry and the two Daryls make appearances as well, rounding off this episode as practically perfect...
