My Conversation With Comedy Legend Bob Newhart

Posted: Updated:

Tonight on PBS, I sit down with Bob Newhart who, after seven nominations and over 50 years in show business, recently won his first Emmy.

In a sneak preview of our conversation, Bob explains why a preacher originally refused to wed him and his beloved wife of 50 years. Watch him talk about the reason why below.

Our conversation airs tonight, Friday, September 27, on "Tavis Smiley."
