Bob Newhart is one of the greatest comedians of our time. He has influenced and fathered the comedic stylings of so many comedians that listing all of them would be stupid.
He has starred in four TV shows with different variations of his name as their titles, The Bob Newhart Show, The Bob Newhart Show, Newhart, and Bob. Why not go for the gusto and bring Bob Newhart back in a fifth incarnation, The New Newhart Show?
Here is the show concept.
Bob Newhart's long lost brother Rob dies and leaves him a ski resort...in Afghanistan. Going against all his friends' advice and against good judgment, he decides to move to Afghanistan and carry the torch of his brother's dream, healing Afghanistan with comedy and skiing.
Every episode would bring a new set of problems and a flurry of washed-up-semi-famous guest stars who have somehow ended up in Afghanistan.
I want to see another Bob Newhart show. This could be the most amazing thing ever.
