Synopsis by Mark Deming
Cheers brought a new level of sophistication to the medium of the situation comedy, as well as introducing a cast of superb character players whose interaction raised the bar for acting in television comedy. While hardly an immediate success (its debut episode came in dead last in the weekly Nielsen ratings), in time, Cheers became one of the most successful and acclaimed comedy series on television. Inside Television's Greatest: Cheers is a documentary which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of this television milestone, featuring interviews with members of the show's cast, crew, and writing staff.
