Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
In this hilarious sitcom from the '70s, Bob Newhart stars as Dr. Robert Hartley, a successful Chicago psychologist specializing in group therapy sessions. Bob's patience is often tested by his patients — including a paranoid grouch with a persecution complex, a hen-pecked husband, and an emotional eater — all trying to "find themselves." Even at home with his wife Emily, Bob is surrounded by an assortment of nutty and neurotic neighbors. But if laughter is the best therapy, you can be sure the good doctor and those who love him make a little progress every day!

One of the best shows ever..
bs'd It is great to see itunes keeping up with the tastes of all audiences regardless of age or background. This, along with THE NANNY, THE NEWHART SHOW (the one set in Vermont). BOSOM BUDDIES et al, is a classic tv show. It is timelessly funny. It has wonderful actors and the plots are delicious. The children can even stay in the room which is rare these days. Bravo to iTunes for bringing back good family viewing that is not treacle. :-)
I missed this show...
So incredibly happy to watch at my leisure. It's even funnier now that I'm old and jaded. Great escape on commutes and long-haul flights with just auto-loop video. Still funnier than most everything currently on...
Fly the Unfriendly Skies
