'Frasier' diagnosis: May demise

13 January 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The upcoming big sitcom farewell season became officially bigger Monday as NBC confirmed that five-time Emmy-winning comedy Frasier will end its 11-year run in May. Frasier joins fellow NBC comedy Friends and HBO's Sex and the City, slated to bow out in the next several months, with CBS' Everybody Loves Raymond also facing a sendoff if the network doesn't strike a new deal with the show's star Ray Romano and creator Phil Rosenthal. Jeff Zucker, president of NBC's entertainment, news and cable group, made the official announcement about the end of Frasier on the set of the show on Stage 25 of the Paramount lot, where the series' stars and producers sat under the stage lights for a Q&A with critics and reporters attending the Television Critics Assn.'s winter press tour. "I wanted to take this opportunity publicly to just say that obviously, in the last 11 years, no show has meant as much to the quality and perception of NBC as ('Frasier')," Zucker said. Star and executive producer Kelsey Grammer confirmed that he had discussed with Zucker the possibility for a 12th season of the show, which "didn't work out," while co-creator and executive producer David Lee said that "from the executive producers' standpoint, there was never an intention of going further than this year." »
