George and Leo is an American sitcom starring Bob Newhart and Judd Hirsch which aired on CBS from September 15, 1997 to March 16, 1998.

Synopsis[edit]

Newhart and Hirsch starred as the respective title characters, widely divergent men who become in-laws when their children get married. George's (Newhart) son was played by Jason Bateman. Bess Meyer initially played Leo's (Hirsch) daughter, but was replaced after the first eight episodes by Robyn Lively. The series was set on Martha's Vineyard, where George owned a bookstore.

One episode, "The Cameo Show", featured guest appearances from many of the costars of Newhart's and Hirsch's previous sitcoms: The Bob Newhart Show, Taxi, Newhart, and Dear John. The series was canceled after 22 episodes due to low ratings.
