The show's creators originally envisioned Daphne as a Latina similar to Rosie Perez. But NBC president Warren Littlefield suggested Jane Leeves and Daphne's ethnicity was changed to English. Grammer was originally disappointed because he felt that having an English housekeeper would make the show similar to Nanny and the Professor (1970). But he changed his mind after a meeting with Leeves. See more »

I enjoy watching Seinfeld and Becker more than I enjoy watching Frasier, but Frasier leaves them both behind in genuine sitcom quality. The cast is brilliant and the writing is absolutely top-notch. The first 5 seasons was probably the best display of American sitcom of all time, if not international sitcom. Unfornunately the show ran out of steam in the final few series when the energy seemed to slip away from both the writing and acting.
Frasier is a real comedy lovers comedy. Even though it pokes fun at wine-loving snobs, it's upper-class feel may have kept some from experiencing the show. While it's not my all-time favourite show, Frasier is undoubtedly the most professional sitcom that I have ever seen.
