White joins CBS’ revamped ‘Bob’

Another former “Golden Girl” will be working this season, as Betty White joins the cast of Paramount’s reworked CBS sitcom “Bob.”

The show, which will premiere on CBS’ fall schedule after baseball in late October, will now have Bob Newhart running the greeting-card company he left to pursue his comic-book career during the show’s first season.

White, in a recurring role, will play the wife of the company’s former owner, with Jere Burns (“Dear John”) and Eric Allan Kramer (“Robin Hood: Men in Tights”) joining the show as employees.

White won three Emmys for her work on “The Golden Girls” and spent another season last year in CBS’ spin-off “Golden Palace.”

“Girls” alumna Estelle Getty will also turn up this season in a regular role on NBC’s “Empty Nest.”

Changes are also planned for “Bob’s” fall running mate, TriStar’s “Good Advice,” with Teri Garr coming aboard to play Shelley Long’s sister, and comic Henriette Mantel playing Long’s housekeeper.
