Frasier (NBC 1993-2004, Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce)

Sitcom Frasier was a spin off from Cheers that saw Psychiatrist Frasier Crane relocate from Boston back to his home town of Seattle. Once back he takes a job as psychiatrist on a radio phone in show as well as taking in his widowed father Martin and his English carer Daphne whom Frasier’s bumptious brother Niles lusts after.

Once in a while a Cheers regular would make a guest appearance and many famous uncredited stars sought Frasier’s advice on his radio phone in. Frasier won a record-setting 31 Emmys, including five consecutive awards for Outstanding Comedy Series. It spent eight seasons in Nielsen’s top 20 — five of which were in the top 10. And it enabled star Kelsey Grammer, whose Dr. Frasier Crane was introduced on Cheers in 1984, to tie James Arness (Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke) for the longest-running portrayal of a TV character.

The show ended on 13 May 2004 with an hour long special in which therewere two happy endings, a big mystery and 25.4 million viewers. First, the happy endings: Niles and Daphne became first-time parents and Crane patriarch Martin married ex-model Nina van Horn. Now, for the mystery: After accepting a new job in San Francisco, lovelorn Frasier jetted to Chicago to win back would-be soul mate Charlotte. Was he successful? Dunno! The show finished before we could find out.
