In2TV Month Six Episodes for Sitcoms

We don't have the final ratings numbers yet for this past week (probably because of the holiday weekend), so we will just not do the numbers at all for this past week. But we have our monthly In2TV post today! Thanks goes to Todd yesterday for two great mini-reviews and for giving me a day off. I will have another day off tomorrow as Todd previews the two new sitcoms debuting this week on Fox. We will have reviews from the pilot episode from skees53 of both of those sitcoms, too. So, hope you all will check in with us tomorrow on Labor Day. Have a nice Labor Day, and I will see you all Tuesday, but please come back tomorrow!

It's time to change some episodes for In2TV! The way it works is that they'll have 10 total episodes available each month. Every month, 5 of the 10 will be replaced with new 5 new episodes--so make sure you watch the 10 episodes each month, because you never know which 5 episodes they will replace the following month. This month they will be adding Gilligan's Island, Kirk, Police Academy: The Series, The D.A., The Office (1995) and Real Gilligan's Island. They are also adding two Godzilla movies: King of Monsters and Godzilla Raides Again. And Head of the Class returns after a few months off. Sadly, no new episode for Chico and the Man this month, though. More info on that below.

Criteria for the episodes:
-- "Starchives" - Episodes featuring stars before they were stars, including Brad Pitt on Growing Pains, and Jay Leno on Alice
-- "Classic Creme de la Creme" - Showcase of the most memorable episodes of a given series
-- "StarFavs" - Stars' favorite episodes

And I'm sure the rest are randomly picked.

New series joining In2TV this month are Kirk, Police Academy: The Series, The D.A., Gilligan's Island, The Office (1995), and The Real Gilligan's Island.

Currently, there are well over thirty classic series on In2TV. There will be hundreds more very soon. Some of the shows we can for sure expect sometime this year are: My Sister Sam, The Hogan Family (LOL TV); Bret Maverick, Freedom, Guns of Paradise, High Performance, Hunter, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, O'Hara, Pointman, Profiles from the Front Line, Pros & Cons, The Flash, Young Maverick (Rush TV); Flamingo Road, Our House, The Yellow Rose (Dramarama TV); Taz-Mania, The Zeta Project (Toontopia TV); Crusade, Night Visions, Prey, Time Trax, Wizards & Warriors (Heroes & Horrors TV).

Bob Newhart: A Legacy of Laughter

Bob Newhart: A Legacy of Laughter (CBS, 8:00PM ET/PT)

CBS announced a new Entertainment Tonight special, Bob Newhart: A Legacy of Laughter, to air Monday, July 22 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and streaming on Paramount+ (live and on-demand for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers, or on-demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after the special airs)*.

Hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Nischelle Turner, this one-hour tribute honors the late comedian with a look back at his 70-year career, featuring never-before-seen interviews, and his final interview from his home in Los Angeles. The special takes an in-depth look at his journey from accountant to comedian to Hollywood icon, with rare behind-the-scenes footage of Bob on the set of his sitcoms and feature films, from the Entertainment Tonight vault. Included are new and archival interviews with some of Bob’s closest friends and co-stars, including Jim Parsons, Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Jason Bateman and Michael Weatherly. The show takes an intimate look inside Bob’s personal life and his marriage to the love of his life, Ginnie, with newly revealed stories about how he changed American culture through comedy.

Bob starred as Chicago psychologist Robert Hartley on the CBS television series The Bob Newhart Show from 1972 to 1978, and then as Vermont innkeeper Dick Loudon on Newhart from 1982 to 1990, also on the Network. He had two other sitcoms on CBS in the 1990s, Bob and George and Leo. Bob played the recurring role of Professor Proton on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory from 2013 to 2018, for which he received his first Primetime Emmy Award.
