“Bob Newhart Show” reunion tonight

NewhartshowgroupLooking forward to “The Bob Newhart Show” event tonight at the Paley Center for Media, which happens to fall on Newhart’s 78th birthday. (Happy birthday Bob).

Panel promises to reunite Newhart with cast mates Suzanne Pleshette, Peter Bonerz, Marcia Wallace, Bill Daily, Jack Riley and director Dick Martin for clips and Q&A and “gawsh I just loved doing that show” oratory. But it outta be a good, clean fun. Event is timed to TV Land’s extensive 35th anniversary tribute to the show, which has been a staple of the vintage TV cabler for more years now than the series had in its original run on CBS (1972-78). (Pictured from left in 2005, Wallace, Pleshette, Newhart and Tom Poston, Pleshette’s late husband, longtime friend of Newhart’s and co-star of Newhart’s other long-running CBS sitcom, “Newhart.”)

On Monday, TV Land plans a marathon of eight Newhart-selected favorite segs, starting with “Last TV Newhartcastphotocreditmtmenterprise Show,” in which Newhart’s group therapy group urges him to accept an invite from the local PBS outlet to conduct a session live on air. The 10:30 p.m. seg “Some of My Best Friends” in which a young and swinger-looking Howard Hesseman joins the group, is not to be missed. Also next week, TV Land.com plans to stream those eight episodes, through Sunday, plus a bunch of other Newhart-ana, new and old.
