In which U.S. city was the TV show Cheers set?
Answer: On September 30, 1982, NBC premiered the sitcom Cheers, a show about a bar owned by a retired Boston Red Sox pitcher named Sam Malone. The sitcom was set in a bar named Cheers in Boston, Massachusetts.
“Boston was chosen partially because only five short-lived television shows claimed the city and the East Coast pubs were real neighborhood hangouts,” wrote Dennis A. Bjorklund in his book, Toasting Cheers. The show’s main theme song, lent its famous refrain “Where Everybody Knows Your Name” as the show’s tagline.
