Antenna TV's Father's Day Fest With Father Knows Best Marathon; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 4, 2012)


Father Knows Best
This Father's Day, Antenna TV will honor dad with "Father's Day Fest with Father Knows Best" on Sunday, June 17, 2012 from 7am to midnight ET. Antenna TV, which airs on 61 affiliates across the U.S. reaching 58% of TV households, will celebrate Father's Day with a 17-hour marathon of Father Knows Best. Yep, a 17 hour marathon on the 17th! Some of the classic episodes include "Lesson in Citizenship," "Proud Father," "Father is a Dope," "The Grass Is Greener," "Swiss Family Anderson" and "Jim's Big Surprise." There are no encores, so it's 34 episodes in a row non-stop for 17 hours! The series aired on CBS and then later NBC from 1954-1960 and starred Robert Young as James "Jim" Anderson, Jane Wyatt as Margaret Anderson, Elinor Donahue as Betty "Princess" Anderson, Billy Gray as James "Bud" Anderson and Lauren Chapin as Kathy "Kitten" Anderson. The series was set in the typical Midwestern community of Springfield, where Jim Anderson was an agent for the General Insurance Company. Every evening he would come home from work, take off his sport jacket, put on his comfortable sweater, and deal with the everyday problems of a growing family. The series regularly airs on Antenna TV Friday nights at 7:00pm & 7:30pm and Sunday mornings at 7:00am & 7:30am.

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.
