Produced by Charles-Burrows-Charles Productions in association with Paramount Television. It was televised from September 30, 1982 to May 20, 1993, on the NBC network. It was a show set in Cheers bar in Boston, Massachusetts, where a group of locals met to drink and have fun. 

It was nearly cancelled by NBC in its first season when it ranked last in the ratings, but it was saved by NBC's entertainment president Brandon Tartikoff. Then it became a highly rated television show and it ranked in the top-ten during eight of its eleven seasons. The show earned 26 Emmy Awards, out of a total of 117 nominations. 

The exterior shots of the bar cheers were filmed at The Bull and Finch Pub in Boston, Massachusetts. It was based on an ensemble cast (relative equal importance of all the characters), numerous secondary characters and love interests for these characters appeared intermittently to complement storylines that generally revolved around this core group. 

Some of the main characters included: The owner of the bar and bartender, Sam Malone (Ted Danson) who was a former relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox (1982–1993); a waitress named Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) (1982–1987); Rebecca Howe (Kirstie Alley) the manager of the bar (1987–1993); another waitress Carla Tortelli (Rhea Perlman) (1982–1993); Woody Boyd (Woody Harrelson) the assistant bartender (1985–1993); and customers like Norm Peterson (George Wendt) who was an accountant and interior decorator (1982–1993), Cliff Clavin (John Ratzenberger) who was a mailman (1982–1993), Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) a psychiatrist (1984–1993) and Lilith Sternin (Bebe Neuwirth) who was also a psychiatrist (1986–1993).
