The American sitcom Cheers was written by its creators: James Burrows, and Glen and Les Charles.


About Cheers Cheers was a comedy sitcom that ran from 1982 to 1993. It was set in a bar in Boston, Massachusetts, and the episodes revolved around the adventures of the barman Sam Malone and his regular clients.

One of the main reasons that Cheers was so popular is because it was one of the first shows of its type which didn't talk down to the audience - the writers thought that the viewers were intelligent enough to follow the story-line and appreciate the humor by themselves.

Produced by James Burrows and Les and Glen Charles, the show aired for 273 successful episodes. It actually went relatively un-noticed when it first went on air, but by the end of the first season it had drawn millions of viewers across the States.

Cheers ran for eleven series, and was also the source for a spin-off show, Frazier, which became just as successful as its parent sitcom.
