Trivia

After being repeatedly asked for a Cheers (1982) spin-off, the show's producers offered NBC two pitches: one by Ken Estin, which involved the Tortelli family, and another pitch by David Angell, which would have been a prequel series set in the 1950s and featuring a younger version of Coach Ernie Pantusso during his playing days.

Underrated, but extremely entertaining.

This show never got a fair chance. It was a very funny series that showed definite potential to become one of the greats. Even "Seinfeld" got 3 years to catch on before winning over a solid audience, but they pulled the plug on "The Tortellis" far too soon. Consider yourself very lucky if you find a rerun of this show on late night television.
