Discovering "The Bob Newhart Show"

I was messing around on Hulu the other day when, having exhausted all avaliable 30 Rock episodes, I decided to try something new. I watched episodes of the now-decades old The Bob Newhart Show. And I love it. It's a great show with engaging characters and situations. And the humor holds up over time, too.

While watching one episode, I noticed a character seemed to be slightly familiar, but I had no clue who it was. (I'm not an expert on 1970's television.) I stuck around through the credits to find out that the mystery man was none other than Arvin Sloane himself, Ron Rifkin. If you want to see Uncle Saul from years ago, he's the business manager in this episode embedded right below. Enjoy!
