The Bob Newhart Show is a sitcom that aired on CBS.

The show centers on Robert Hartley, Ph.D., a Chicago psychologist. It divides most of its action between the character's work and his home life, with Hartley's supportive (though occasionally sarcastic) wife Emily, and their friendly but inept neighbor, airline navigator Howard Borden. At the medical office where Hartley has his psychology practice are Jerry Robinson, D.D.S., an orthodontist who also has a practice on the floor, and their joke-loving receptionist, Carol Kester, as well as a number of other doctors who appear occasionally.
