In the premiere episode of the sixth season, the show took over the time slot previously occupied by Seinfeld (1989). The episode opens with Frasier auditioning for a TV show after being fired from his radio show, and his opening speech is a reference to the acquisition of "Seinfeld"'s slot: "Before we begin, I'd like to say how honored I am to be taking over this slot. Obviously, I have some rather big shoes to fill - my predecessor here was much beloved. But I have never been one to shrink from a challenge and I'm sure we'll enjoy many happy years here together in my new home." See more »
As always with any long-running comedy series, there are some inconsistencies in characters' back-histories between episodes, but we generally excuse them. Discrepancies between this series and Cheers (from which it is a spin-off) are completely exempt from nitpicking (and some have been explained away, anyway). See more »

All right, what would you do?
Well for starters, I'd take that corn-nut off the board.
That corn-nut's my bishop. Eddie ate the real one.
In that case, Corn-nut to Rook Seven.

Upper-class, very entertaining and likeable sitcom.
Rather like Friends and Seinfeld, Frasier is one of those sitcoms of the 90's with mass appeal. While it probably isn't as internationally famous as "Friends" it is every bit as good as it. Over the years, "Frasier" has remained a consistently entertaining and ultimately satisfying sitcom. It always has fresh, witty material and hopefully will continue for another few years. The cast all work perfectly together, the overall effect is very good. "Frasier" is one of the best sitcoms on television today.
