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.

What a bad show (maybe)
23 October 2003 | by Jonah14See all my reviews

I remember when I was 17 this show debuting after a Cheers episode. The funny thing was that I had missed all the Nick Tortelli shows prior to seeing this, so I had no idea why Carla appeared in the beginning of the pilot to tell Nick to clean his act up in an odd dream sequence. Since I didn't see Nick or Loretta or their kids, I just thought they were vile and unfunny -- now when I watch the Nick episodes in "Cheers", they're all a scream. Maybe someday someone will re-air the episodes so I can watch it with the background intact.
