SHOCKING TV MOMENTS

BOB NEWHART and SUZANNE
PLESHETTE in THE BOB NEWHART
SHOW (1972-1978). Was NEWHART
just a dream? (Photo courtesy

Probably the best finale of a TV series was the one on NEWHART in 1990 where Bob and Emily wake up from the 1970's series to find out that NEWHART (1982-1990) was just a dream.

Colonel Henry Blake is written out of M*A*S*H* by having his plane shot down over the Sea of Japan as he is heading home to be discharged.

Sammy Davis, Jr. visits the Bunker household on ALL IN THE FAMILY and plants a kiss on Archie's cheek. Archie (Carroll O'Connor) gives Sammy an unbelievable look!

Was Major Frank Burns wrapped up in a straight jacket, and written out of M*A*S*H, also?

I had forgotton about that episode on Bob Newhart: What a great show that was! One of my favorite all time actors as well. I saw him on a TNT special recently: The Librarian, he was GREAT in it. As usual, love your columns, Jim!
