events from Cheers did happen in the Frasier timeline... the one glaring conflict has already been mentioned... Frasier's dad is not dead.

How about everybody else? Do we all agree? Is Cheers canon?

Im sure there are some passing references that don't fit, but nothing glaring.

I've seen most of Frasier, and to be honest I sometimes found it a little boring. Don't get me wrong, it had its moments and Frasier's deadpan delivery floored me at times. Still, I think he was funnier in Cheers. I also enjoy the big ensemble cast of Cheers a heck of a lot more,and like someone said it also had hilarious peripheral characters.

The old guy who just shouted out the odd line every so often was hysterical.

I understand Diane was intentionally awful at times, and sometimes it really worked. But Sam/Diane relationship was sooooo played out by season 3, so the fact it carried on until the end of season 5 was painful. The final scene of them dancing as an old couple is beautiful, though.

Cheers was one of the first shows I was old enough to really appreciate it while it was on; it finished its run while I was in high school. I don't know if it aged necessarily well but like a lot of shows that lasted 10 11 seasons there are plenty of episodes that hold strong even today.
Regarding Frasier's dad yes he does say in Cheers his father is dead. That's addressed in one reunion episode of the spinoff when he tells Martin he extremely mad at his father that time.
They both lasted 11 years which was a big thing for Kelsey Grammer for them to equal. While it did get better in the final season Frasier was starting to feel stretched out by season 9 and season 10 only has a couple episodes worth watching. That said until then episode for episode Frasier matched Seinfeld to me as best sitcom of the '90s.

That was fun. Kind of tentative, but fun. How many sitcoms start off with a wedding fiasco as their inciting incident? Just this and Friends?

I loved Cheers when it came out. Think I would still enjoy it.

Coach was there before Woody.

Not only was the last time I actively watched Cheers many years ago when I was a small child, I think most of the episodes I saw were from the Woody Harrelson era

I too will admit to wondering about Coach when I first met him, but I guess it's been so long that I now assume that everyone knows all the Cheers characters in the internet age.

You won't find a more loveable soul than Nicholas Colasanto.

I'm jealous of your journey. I watched Cheers chronologically when the DVDs were being released annually. I'd get a new season every year for Christmas. One of my first avatars on RM was of Diane.

For Jorge, but not now.

Spoiler: show
This whole thing always resonated with me. I still think about it sometimes. One of my favorite bits of TV lore.

Quote:
Colasanto's character was written out of the show as also having died. The fourth-season premiere episode, "Birth, Death, Love and Rice" (1985), deals with Coach's death and introduces Colasanto's successor Woody Harrelson, who played Woody Boyd.[24] Colasanto had hung a picture of Geronimo in his dressing room; after his death it was placed on the wall in the bar of the Cheers production set in his memory. Near the end of the final episode of Cheers in 1993, eight years after Colasanto's death, bar owner Sam Malone (Ted Danson) walks over to the picture and straightens it.[25]
