Bob Newhart Show 19th Anniversary Special, The (1991) (TV)

As Bob explains in the opening monologue, the show had it's first broadcast in 1972 BUT the pilot was in 1971. Fun show especially for the fans. Bob Newhart is a long time hero, a man who can do no wrong. Always brings the funny.

Rocky 25 (2001) (TV)

On the anniversary of one of the greatest feature films ever the man himself, Sylvester Stallone hosts a viewing of the full length movie along with his personal comments and remembrances. The other major players are also along for the ride with their memories. This was a three hour NBC special broadcast over the 2001 Thanksgiving holiday and is a very good time with some fun irrelevancies.

The News Is the News (1983) TV Series

This VERY short run show was a "funny" attempt at reading the news ala SNL Newsbreak but in a half-hour format. Covering the news of the previous week, including that very day, June 15, 1983 (verified by showing the actual newspaper front pages) the hosts get whimsical in their trademark left-leaning way. It's forgivable and almost endearing to hear the anti-Ronnie hatred as this was a faraway time in a more naive universe. The written comedy is one thing but the actual headlines are also quite ludicrous. But forgivable. The early 80s were very weird.

Cast: Karen Dale, Michael Davis, Simon Jones, Charlotte Moore, Michael Palin, Lynne Thigpen, Trey Wilson

Cheaters (1980) (TV)
