  Newhart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Newhart is a television situation comedy that aired on the CBS network from 1982 to 1990.
The show starred comedian Bob Newhart as Dick Loudon, an author of do-it-yourself books who moved from New York City to the town of Norwich, Vermont (with location shots filmed at The Waybury Inn in Middlebury, Vermont).
Bob Hartley tells Emily that in the dream he lived in a weird Vermont town with weird people: a snobbish maid and her alliterative husband, a dense handyman, and three eccentric woodsmen, two of whom were mute.

 Bob Newhart - The Bob Newhart Show

 The Bob Newhart Show/ Newhart
The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart are both prime examples of the ensemble comedy that came into vogue in U.S. television during the 1970s and enjoyed continued popularity in the 1980s and 1990s.
The two shows had much else in common (in addition to their star, Bob Newhart); both had sharp writing, well-drawn characters, and a distinctive style of humor that was intelligent and sophisticated, yet just a bit off the wall.
When Newhart retired the show--by choice--he expressed misgivings about the direction of situation comedy as the 1970s gave way to the 1980s; broad physical comedy and obvious jokes seemed to be pushing out wit and sophistication.

The show was tailor-made for Newhart, giving him ample opportunity to use the telephone routines that were the trademark of his stand-up act.
But Newhart proved to show some surprising range as an actor, though his dead-pan reactions/delivery is in full force for most of the series.
Newhart is surrounded by capable actors, though the sum doesn't not necessarily make for a cohesive whole: Pleshette has always been a good actress, but as a couple the pair lacks chemistry (and Pleshette seems like an awfully brittle partner for Newhart), and Bonerz is pretty much as blank as Bob's best friend.
