Re: "Cheers" vs. "Seinfeld"

Cheers suffered when forced to change a couple of their original characters just like MASH did with the loss of Trapper, Frank Burns and Henry Blake.
They lost a heck of a character when coach (Nicholas Colasanto) passed away. And as much as I loved the show, I couldn't stand Shelley Long. Would have loved to have seen an episode where Carla punches her in the mouth.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
