Pope sitcom

Was going to say something about hoping the new pope starts out by declaring "Hey, let's fire everybody within a mile of all these child-abuse cover-ups."

But that sort of goes without saying.

Remember Bob Newhart's 1970s TV show, the one where he played a psychologist? Sure.

Well, one of my favorite moments came in a session Bob was having with Mr. Carlin, a patient.

Mr. Carlin was talking about trying to interest television producers in an idea he had for a new series. He had not had much luck though.

The series? "Darn Than Pope."
