One for the Road

Henderson natives (and brothers) Glen and Les Charles were already successful writers and producers for The Bob Newhart Show and Taxi when they began working on a new sitcom in 1981. That show, Cheers, became one of the most beloved in TV history, running on NBC for 11 seasons and winning 28 Emmy Awards from a then-record 117 nominations. GQ revisits Cheers on the 30th anniversary of its on-air debut, delivering a vivid oral history that includes remembrances from the show’s co-creators and its entire cast. Even now, the sitcom about the bar where everybody knows your name remains “the best TV show that’s ever been,” according to actress/comedian Amy Poehler. We’ll drink to that.

Fritz Reese’s office looks out on a dark and dusty atrium that’s home to a single tree and a brown garden of sprouting quarter-inch dripper tubes. “Yeah, they took the grass out a long time ago to save money and water, and they were supposed to put in rocks. But hey, dirt’s even cheaper.”
