The Bob Newhart Show - Season 6, Episode 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Bob's Change of Life


Episode Info

The fifth season of The Bob Newhart Show ended on March 19, 1977, with the news that Emily Hartley was pregnant. This somewhat significant plot point was conveniently forgotten when the series launched its sixth season on September 24, 1977. Written by Glen and Les Charles, the opening episode, "Bob's Change of Life," found the Hartleys moving into a new apartment. This is but one of many mid-life crises which led Bob to indulge in a few intense sessions of self-analysis. The supporting cast includes Martha Scott as Bob's mother and Charles Thomas Murphy as George Simmons.
