A Chicagoan from head to toe, American comedian Bob Newhart recorded his first comedy album in 1960 — which evidently struck a nerve with fellow white-collar workers, since it sold 1,500,000 copies. The hottest young comic on the club-and-TV circuit, Newhart was offered starring roles in situation comedies, but felt he wasn’t a good enough actor to make a single character interesting week after week. Instead, he signed in 1961 for NBC’s The Bob Newhart Show, a comedy-variety series which nosedived in the ratings but won an Emmy. Fearing that TV would eat up all his material within a year or so, Newhart went back to nightclubs after his one-season series was cancelled. Sharpening his acting skills in TV guest spots and in several films , Newhart felt emboldened enough to attempt a regular TV series again in 1972. This Bob_Newhart_Show cast the comedian as psychologist Bob Hartley – an ideal outlet for his ‘button-down’ style of dry humor.
