I don't think Bob is smiling anymore. I used to hate those commercials. Usually they were on the non-premium cable stations like TNT, TBS, DISCOVERY, TLC, HISTORY, etc.
They were so annoying, and now will probably be replaced with another Bob, known to more as Robert Wagner, in commercials selling reverse mortgages. I'm getting sick of those too. (It takes a thief was really 40 years ago? Damn.)

CINCINNATI -- A federal court jury on Friday found the owner of a company that sells ''male enhancement'' tablets and other herbal supplements guilty of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, bank fraud and money laundering.
Steve Warshak is founder and president of Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals, which distributes Enzyte and a number of products alleged to boost energy, manage weight, reduce memory loss and aid restful sleep.
Warshak, 40, could face more than 20 years in prison and his company could have to forfeit tens of millions of dollars.
Prosecutors claimed customers were bilked out of $100 million through a series of deceptive ads, manipulated credit card transactions and the company's refusal to accept returns or cancel orders. They said unauthorized credit card charges generated thousands of complaints over unordered products.
Youtube had a clip of the TV show for those that are too young to remember.
