Some Recent TV Spinoff Successes And Failures
Some of the more recent TV spinoff successes and failures:
Frasier - Who would have thought that a show about the most neurotic, pompous character on Cheers and his even more neurotic, pompous brother would last for 11 years? The show had a good tension between Kelsey Grammer and and David Hyde Pierce's uptight brothers, John Mahoney's salt-of-the-earth father, Jane Leeves' wacky live-in physical therapist and radio station characters such as Peri Gilpin's sarcastic show producer.
With a dry, sophisticated wit, Frasier set itself apart from the barroom Cheers concept and enjoyed enthusiastic critical reception, as well as 37 Primetime Emmys.
Length of show's run: 11 seasons
