Morning Edition: Making a Comedy Pilot? You Might Want to Call James Burrows
Can you believe its been 30 years since Cheers debuted? Probably not, since many people didn’t initially find this show until after its 3rd or 4th season. The program was nearly canceled after finishing 74th out of 78 shows in its first season. It went on to anchor Must See Television on Thursday nights on NBC. It is now a much loved, oft repeated sitcom. This special collector’s set includes all 11 seasons of the series. **270 episodes on 45 discs. 109 1/2 hrs.**
Other Classic Thursday Sitcoms:
Friends - The perfect sitcom combination - great writing, wonderfully acted and perfectly cast combine with good direction and production.
Frasier - Funny, sharp and intelligent humor.
The Cosby Show - A breakthrough show that demonstrated good family values.
Family Ties - Never got this one which featured a star making turn by Michael J. Fox.
Will & Grace - A wonderful, talented cast that more than makes up for a somewhat uneven series.
