Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
The lives of the disparate group of employees and patrons at a Boston watering hole called Cheers over eleven years is presented. Over much of this period, Sam Malone, a womanizing ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher and an alcoholic, owns the bar, its purchase and this life which was his salvation from his alcoholism which was largely the cause of the end of his baseball career. He ends up having a love-hate relationship with intellectual Diane Chambers, who he hires as a waitress and whose cultured mentality is foreign to anyone else in the bar. He also has an evolving relationship with Rebecca Howe, who managed the bar for the Lily Corporation which bought it from Sam, but whose outward business savvy belied the fact that she was a mess of a woman who was struggling to find her place in life.

Aside from Frasier (1993), Cheers only spun off one other series, The Tortellis (1987). The series focused on Carla's ex-husband Nick, and aired for 13 episodes in the winter/spring of 1987. After its cancellation, the show's characters Nick, Loretta, Anthony and Annie returned to their recurring status on Cheers. While Wings (1990) was created and produced by Cheers writers and characters crossed over between the two shows, it was considered more of a companion show and in no way a spin off of Cheers.

This show was great. It had clever writing and lots of classic moments. This was back during a time when tv shows were able to be funny without making constant references to sex. Ted Danson does some of his best work here, as well as the rest of the cast. A classic in our own time.
