Newhart is a sitcom that aired on CBS.

Bob Newhart played Dick Loudon, an author of do-it-yourself books and travel books (including "Many Moods Of Minnesota" and "Captivating Kansas".) He and his wife Joanna moved from New York City to a small, unnamed town in rural Vermont to operate the 200-year-old Stratford Inn. Dick was a sane, mild-mannered everyman surrounded by a community of oddballs in a town which existed in an illogical world run by rules that eluded him.

Near the end of the second season, Newhart was re-tooled and Dick began hosting a low-rated talk show on the town's local television station. As the series progressed, episodes focused increasingly on Dick's TV career and the quirky townsfolk. As the years went by, some characters were dropped and others were added.
