    I thought Woody did a great job taking over for Coach. But the show really lost something when Shelly Long left.

    Seinfeld was Seinfeld - great show, more water-cooler.

    I would probably watch a rerun of Seinfeld over Cheers if both were on but I would probably list Cheers higher on my all time list then Seinfeld, if that makes sense.

    She was a great heel.

    I liked Taxi better then Cheers. Now that was a cast of characters.

    I hate Larry David and all that he stands for... which is apparently nothing...

    I like crime shows myself... can I pick Hill Street Blues for 1000, Alex?

    I found Cheers to be a bore. Seinfeld I could watch for hours and enjoy it.

    I liked Frank Burns far better then Charles Emerson Winchester the 3rd. BJ Honeycutt was a capable replacement for Trapper. And I'd say the same for Col. Potter versus Henry Blake. But I still preferred the original cast far better.

    And it was also around that time the Hotlips character, due to Switt's involvement, started to change also. If one will notice, she was starting to be called Margaret far more then Hotlips, until Hotlips pretty much disappeared.

    And it took Radar's departure to finally get Klinger out of that dress.

    Re: "Cheers" vs. "Seinfeld"

    I always loved Seinfeld, but I'd have to pick Cheers as my favorite of the two.

    The Sam and Diane dynamic was classic. The writing was some of the best stuff ever on TV. The characters were classics. Cliff, Norm, Coach, Carla, Woody, Frasier Crane....

    Not knockin' Seinfeld. But I liked Cheers better.

    Yes they do. I'm still waiting for WKRC to come out on DVD.

    But I loved George (who was Larry David in real life). It was rfs who really brought my attention to Curb Your Enthusiasm. I'm starting to collect the series.

    Re: "Cheers" vs. "Seinfeld"

    "Seinfeld" will go down in TV history as a microcosm of American culture in the mid-late 90's: sarcastic, self-absorbed, slightly smug, and lacking a fundamental compassion for anything outside the 6 inches in front of its face.

    Was it a funny show? It absolutely was; but I agree with whoever said that it isn't going to age well at all.

    Re: "Cheers" vs. "Seinfeld"

    I liked Seinfeld at the beginning, but it became way too meta for me in later years. At the beginning, it was a "show about nothing" and it was exactly that -- waiting in line, trying to find your car -- and it was brilliant. In later seasons it became a show about itself. The bread guy, the soup nazi, the envelope-licking fiancee -- dude, whatever. I thought it was boring. It was a bunch of inside jokes, and the piont of inside jokes is that they're, you know, inside. It was very, very full of itself at that time. That's awful for comedy.

    I liked Cheers, I guess, I think it's a better-developed show and more poignant. Honeslty I'd say Frasier is better than either of them. Maybe that's sacreligious but I guess there's no accounting for taste.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I thought Frasier was very well-done and "underrated" IMO. And just since this thread was brought back up, I will vote once again strongly for Cheers.

    As vp says, its according to your tastes. But I would turn on a Cheers re-run over Seinfeld 10x out of 10.

    I feel the same way. What I loved about Seinfeld was that you never had any of those "Next, on a Very Special...." episodes. I watch my favorite sitcoms for the humor and entertainment, so I hate it when they lecture. Plus, there are just so many unique Seinfeld episodes that someone can just mention a phrase from the episode and it immediate conjures up the episode in my mind.

    While Cheers had memorable characters, most of the plots were pretty standard sitcom fare. The two most memorable lines from Cheers that I can think of are Cliff's Jeopardy answer "Who are people who have not been in my kitchen?" and Norm's "It's a dog-eat-dog world and I'm wearing Milkbone underwear." But other than that, I just remember the characters and overall gist of the show, but can't recall many individual episodes.
