Overview

"Cheers" TV Show: A Comprehensive Reference is authored by a sitcom expert who penned the most comprehensive reference book that has ever been written about the show. This definitive guide is the best resource for any fan who is intrigued and enthralled by one of the all-time classic television situation comedies. The contents have been thoroughly researched and all 275 episodes meticulously analyzed to develop an unabridged, credible reference source.

Individual chapters are devoted to biographies of the cast (Ted Danson, Shelley Long, Kirstie Alley, Kelsey Grammar, Woody Harrelson, Rhea Perlman, George Wendt, John Ratzenberger, Bebe Neuwirth, Nicholas Colasanto) and narratives of their respective characters (Sam Malone, Diane Chambers, Rebecca Howe, Frasier Crane, Woody Boyd, Carla Tortelli-LeBec, Norm Peterson, Cliff Clavin, Lilith Sternin-Crane, Coach) to provide a thoughtful examination of their persona.

Additional chapters are committed to a biography of the show from its inception through the series finale, and a narrative of the fictional Cheers bar, including bar regulars and memorable patrons (Robin Colcord, John Hill, Eddie LeBec, Nick Tortelli, Kelly Gaines, Melville’s, Gary’s Olde Towne Tavern, Bull & Finch Pub).

Another section offers a detailed description of each “Cheers” episode in chronological order based on airing dates from 1982 to 1993. The summaries contain technical credits, episode writers, directors, guest actors (with highlights of significant movie and television credits), and the most humorous episodic quotes.

The final chapter provides a listing of the Emmy nominations and awards earned over the show's eleven-year span of television dominance. In sum, this book is the most extensive analysis of “Cheers” available on the market. No other source is more complete, accurate, or extensive. Photos included.
