Why Is Bob Newhart Button Down Concert Rated Not Rated?

Comedian Bob Newhart recites some of his most famous comedy routines in this made-for-TV concert. While he is sometimes irreverent in his look at historical figures, certain occupations, and authority figures, the good nature of his jest is never in question. One sketch, where he talks about a group of women who are asked to identify a flasher, does include some mild sexual humor. Drunkenness is also attributed to an airplane pilot, and acted out during a retirement speech. The only violence alluded to occurs when a submarine captain causally mentions the loss of some of his men.
