Although it featured an entirely different premise as Newhart's first foray into network comedy, The Bob Newhart Show , the '80s series drew laughs from the same place - with Newhart as the usually calm, lone voice of sanity in an environment populated by eccentrics. It's been the source of Newhart's comedy since his stand-up days in the '60s. Bob Hartley's neurotic, big-city patients and his timid neighbor, Newhart gave us a spoiled chambermaid, a slow-witted handyman, a yuppie TV executive and a trio of woodsmen where only one of them, Larry, spoke on behalf of his two brothers, both of whom were also named Daryl. Although Newhart was a ratings success - it never ranked lower than No. At a Christmas party, Newhart told his wife, Ginnie, that he thought this would be the last season for the program.

Emily Hartley : I'm happy for you. Robert Hartley : Nothing made sense in this place. I mean, the maid was an heiress, her husband talked in alliteration, the handyman kept missing the point of things. And there were these three woodsmen. But only one of them talked. Emily Hartley : That settles it.

Newhart starred as Dick Loudon, a successful author of do-it-yourself and travel books, who along with his wife Joanna Mary Frann decided to move from New York City to a small town in Vermont, where they purchased and ran the year-old Stratford Inn. The first season aired to solid but not sensational ratings, but at first reviewers didn't think the show had much going for it outside of Newhart himself. Newhart and creator and executive producer Barry Kemp weren't completely happy either, so when the show was renewed, it was retooled somewhat: the show switched from harsh videotape to a warmer film production; Leslie was replaced as maid with her bitchy, self-absorbed cousin Stephanie Julia Duffy ; and, toward the end of Season 2, Dick was persuaded to host a local TV talk show, Vermont Today. Dick's involvement with the show and its producer, the vapid but manic Michael Harris Peter Scolari , became a whole new source of humor, as did Michael's budding romance with Stephanie.
