1 Cheers Cheers Cheers is an American sitcom that ran for eleven seasons between 1982 and 1993. The show was produced by Charles/Burrows/Charles Productions in association with Paramount Network Television for NBC and created by the team of James Burrows, Glen Charles, and Les Charles.

Almost cancelled in its first season due to low ratings, this sitcom held on to become one of the most beloved shows in T.V. history. Taking place in the titular bar, where Bostonians met to drink and where “everybody knows your name,” it depicted the lives of employees and patrons alike. The show’s willingness to tackle issues like alcoholism and homosexuality, albeit with a sense of humor, made it a trailblazer, and it earned what was then a record 117 Emmy nominations for its role as the anchor of NBC’s “Must-See T.V.” lineup.

The show focuses on the Huxtable family, an upper middle-class African-American family living in Brooklyn, New York.

Love this show it is full of laughs and also real serious life situations. This old classic film has so many episodes that teach you all of the above and making decisions with comedy throughout and always ending with happiness and joy. I HIGHLY recommend watching this show of a peaceful family that lives through everyday life experiencing the real world and everyone learns how to make it out safely! (Joseph Edwards)




As much as we hate to admit it Bill Cosby WAS one of America’s best-loved comedians, and this show is a big reason why. He starred as Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, an obstetrician trying to hold together his upper-middle-class family, aided by his wife, played by the elegant Phylicia Rashad. He created and produced the show, and it was his signature, family-friendly comedy style that allowed the show to deal with serious subjects throughout its run. Not only that, “The Cosby Show” also broke barriers in television for African-Americans, and brought the ...more - thenextsteplover

Growing up isn’t always easy, but it’s certainly filled with lots of emotions, and this comedy-drama did an amazing job of bringing them back. It depicted the coming-of-age of Kevin Arnold, a boy living in a normal American suburb starts the series at 12-years-old. After just six episodes had aired, it won an Emmy for Best Comedy series, thanks mostly to its innovative and groundbreaking writing and storytelling. “The Wonder Years” wasn’t a ratings juggernaut, but the feel-good series spoke to a generation by telling the story of youth
The second you finish the pilot, you will have fallen in love with the entire Arnold family. The show was done beautifully. Sure the filming and sets aren't nearly as extravagant as they are these days, but the writing is something you'll never witness again in your life. It takes place more than 50 years ago, but the same lessons are still relevant in our lives. I've seen many (almost too many) shows, and the Wounder Years is by far my ...more - thenextsteplover

I used to Watch this Sitcom back in 2018 and It was really Funny to me and ALF looks like A Pig, A Aardvark, And a Really Harry E.T. And the cast could be good! And Maybe NBC could revive this show and WB and Really good at shows and If anyone could do, Anyone can! And I think the Revival can come out on 5/4/2019. Well, That’s what I think so you guys could Think about it and you could do it, and You could watch a Few Episodes and you could do it!
