Synopsis / Plot
TV Series (1982-1993). 11 Seasons. 276 episodes. Cheers is a bar in Boston owned by Sam Malone, a former Boston Red Sox pitcher, whose drinking problem ended his career. Helping Sam in the bar is Ernie Pantusso, whom he refers to as Coach and Carla, a tough waitress. Among the regulars are Norm, an accountant who spends most of his time at Cheers to avoid his wife, Vera and Cliff, a mailman, whose conceitedness, annoys everyone. Sam is also a womanizer, who thinks that there isn't a woman he can't have. Diane Chambers, a grad student, who was going away with her boyfriend, stops by the bar but he dumps her. Diane with nowhere else to go, gets a job as a waitress. Sam is attracted to her and makes his move but Diane is turned off by his smug attitude. Eventually they get together but break up and Diane gets a new boyfriend, psychiatrist, Fraiser Crane. They were about to get amrried when Diane leaves him and goes to the bar. The actor who played Coach died, so a new character, Woody Boyd was added. Sam and Diane would get engaged and were about to get married when Sam urged her to fulfill her dream to be a writer. Sam would sell the bar to a corporation. When Sam needed a job, he tried to get a job from the new manager, Rebecca Howe, whom Sam tried to make a move on but resisted, for awhile. Sam would eventually buy back the bar and make Rebecca the manager.
