What Happened ?
2 May 2001 | by Thor2000See all my reviews

It takes just one person to ruin a show, and in this case it was the idiot that cancelled it. Bob Newhart was back in a hit show after his series, Bob, was barely acknowledged. He was joined by Judd Hirsch, another great talent from Dear John and Taxi. The two of them made a successful and hilarious spin on the Odd Couple routine as Hirsch alluded to mob ties he had. His line, "Las Vegas...................Nevada." was hilarious as it annoyed Newhart to no end. The show also starred Jason Bateman, a rare talent barely seen on television. I haven't seen him since It's Your Move or Valerie, two other great shows that were cancelled before their time. Putting the axe to this show was one of the most unjust things that ever occurred to the CBS line-up, but at least that axe man got another job at NBC. How do you think we lost Working, Stark Raving Mad, Unsolved Mysteries and the new Dark Shadows ?
