In Cheers , Sam is a recovering alcoholic who doesn’t drink . Answers may refer to any episode of Cheers or Frasier (as they’re set in the same universe and Sam appears on Frasier at least one time).
Question: Why was Cheers cancelled ? — Martha P., Ridgway, Colo. Televisionary: It wasn’t. Its creators decided to end the show after star Ted Danson, who played Cheers owner Sam Malone, threw in the towel and ended its successful 11-year run on NBC (September 1982 to August 1993).
When Shelley Long (Diane) and Rhea Perlman (Carla) became pregnant in real-life during the third season, only Perlman’s pregnancy was written into the script. For most of that season, Long was mostly filmed behind the bar or from the neck up.
Carla’s promiscuity and sexual prowess (if not odd sexual tastes) was a running gag. She described herself as a “fast breeder”, and gave birth four times during the show’s run, each pregnancy produced by a different man.
Ted Danson as Sam Malone: Now After Cheers , Danson starred in the sitcom Becker from 1998 to 2004, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation from 2011 to 2015, The Good Place from 2016 to 2020 and has had a recurring role in Curb Your Enthusiasm since it began in 2000. He is married to actress Mary Steenburgen.
“I have no regrets about leaving Cheers ,” she said. Well, perhaps one. Maybe if she and Ted Danson had staged a knockdown, dragout brawl — in a manner of speaking — her tenure might not have ended as it did .

Eddie LeBec’s character was killed off after Perlman overheard Thomas talking about her. Though Eddie’s character was a good fit for the show, Jay Thomas landed himself in hot water after Perlman overheard him talking about what it was like to “kiss” her during his radio show.
Film and television At the time, Neuwirth was not interested in doing television work and her character was initially planned to be in only one episode of the series. She left Cheers in 1993 to get back to her career in dancing, but would still make more television appearances in other shows and commercials.
Rebecca finally falls for Sam after he saves her from Robin’s scheme, and after three years of suppressed attraction the two have sex in the Cheers office, leaving it wrecked. Rebecca later confessed to Sam it was one of the most powerful moments in her life.
The obvious thing for him would be to make drinks all the time, but then the waitresses would have to get them, deliver them to tables, etc. Cutting lemons was an activity that required no further logistics. (I jokingly used to say that Sam should sell the bar and become a sushi chef.)
