Bob was murdered
28 February 2008 | by jimel98See all my reviews

"Bob" was never given a real chance, no question on that. The re-tooling and rescheduling was an act of murder, not simply the idiotic game playing that TV executive like to indulge in. It's been so long since I've seen an episode and details are fuzzy, but, like Bob Newhart's previous shows, it was something I looked forward to watching every week. I liked it better than "George and Leo" and that wasn't a bad show.

Bob Newhart is a genius at every turn and this was a chance for him to play a slightly edgier roll. No, not everyone took a liking to it, but it was never really given a chance to mature and hit its stride. Most of the finest television has needed a year or two to really get going and every person who truly loves TV knows that.

I don't know what kind of resume is needed to be a TV executive, but I can only imagine what's on the resumes of some of the meatheads out there and it's safe to say that some are UNDERqualified to empty wastebaskets.
