INTELLIGENT WIT BECOMES COMEDY
In the fall of 1993, "Frazier", premiered on NBC. This sitcom was a spin off of Cheers (which had its last episode earlier in the year). The show was based on Dr. Frasier Crane, played by Kelsey Grammer, returning to his hometown of Seattle after his failed marriage in Boston, the city where Cheers was based. Dr. Crane is a psychiatrist on a radio show. Crane's father moves in him and Crane's bother develop a close yet rival relationship. Joining this ensemble, is the live-in care giver of Crane's father and the producer of Crane's radio show. The brothers' struggling to find love and struggle to escalate in the Seattle cultural elite are recurring themes of the show. Frasier aired until 2004 and went on to become one of the most successful spin-offs of all time.
