Bob Newhart is the king of comedy, from making two insanely successful and hilarious sitcoms to making good movies funnier ("Elf") and bad movies (TNT's "The Librarian") tolerable. Bob is a comedic genius, the likes of which most comedians will never reach. It's pretty amazing how influential he is and how little recognition he gets in the mainstream nowadays. Yeah, he guest stars on "Desperate Housewives" but when average joes list off the comedy greats, they mostly forget Bob and his TV shows. Really, this guy had two (TWO) successful sitcoms. How many people can say that? Mary Tyler Moore, Lucille Ball, Michael J. Fox? It's a very short list and Bob's on it.
