Premise

This hugely successful, multi-Emmy-winning sitcom is set in a friendly Boston bar run by Sam Malone, a former Red Sox pitcher and recovering alcoholic. A brilliantly written and performed ensemble comedy filled with colorful characters, the series, in its first five years, revolved around the on again-off again, dysfunctional romance between Sam and brainy waitress Diane. The series bowed in September 1982, ran for 11 seasons and spun off another all-time classic, 'Frasier.'
