Cheers cast reunite

Key members of the cast of Cheers have reunited for ET.

Bebe Neuwirth, George Wendt, Kirstie Alley, Ted Danson and John Ratzenberger can be seen in this clip.

Ironically it comes just days after producer Glen Charles told GQ a reunion show would never happen.
“We never even considered doing any kind of reunion show,” he said.

“Sam alone at the bar was the last image we wanted. That’s where the show started and where it ended.”

I guess that still holds true.

Updated: longer clip

  1. I saw a recent interview with Ted Danson and Shelley long on Foxtel. They seemed happy to talk about the show. Ted still watched the old shows a lot. Shelley watches Fraiser instead. 😉

  2. Lilith appeared in 12 episodes of Frasier.

    Diane visited Frasier in Seattle twice, and they bumped into each other at a resort once. Sam visits Frasier once when he is unable to commit to getting married. They had some fun reconciling the different backstories for Frasier in Frasier and Cheers and that Peri Gilpin and John Mahoney both has guest roles in the final season of Cheers.

    Frasier went to Boston to give a speech at a conference and ended up at Cliff’s retirement party with Carla, Norm and Paul.

  3. Video date aside, it’s not the 1st time they’ve had a ‘reunion’ (of sorts) – they also had a get-together on an episode of Frasier as well (from memory only Ted Danson was absent as he was busy filming ‘Becker’).

    • Hmmmm. The original clip I posted was from today’s edition of TV Guide, but it didn’t embed properly so I found a longer clip on YouTube. Can’t really explain why TV Guide decided to publish it today. Oh well, a blast from the past in more ways than one.
