> Description 
Frasier was an American TV situation comedy. A spin-off of the highly successful situation comedy Cheers, it starred Kelsey Grammer, reprising his character of Dr. Frasier Crane. It became even more successful than its spin-off parent, a television first. Its first episode aired on NBC on September 16, 1993, and its last episode aired on May 13, 2004.

The show was created by David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee, (Grub Street Productions) in association with Paramount Television. Angell, a former Cheers writer, was a victim of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Casey had also worked on Cheers and, with Lee, on Wings.

Dr. Frasier Crane is a psychiatrist who hosts a radio talk show in Seattle on KACL 780AM. His friend and producer is single mother Roz Doyle, and his colleague, the sports show host Bulldog Briscoe is always on hand to annoy Frasier and hit on Roz. Frasier lives with his father, retired cop Martin Crane, who was shot in the hip at work and walks with a cane. Martin is looked after by his Manchester-born health care worker, Daphne Moon, who is the love interest of Frasier's brother Niles Crane, a fellow psychiatrist who is even more stuffy and pompous than Frasier. Completing the lineup is Martin's dog Eddie (Moose, a well-trained Jack Russell Terrier) who responds with alacrity to the other characters but stares uncomprehendingly at Frasier. When not hosting his radio program, Frasier drinks coffee at the Cafe Nervosa, a pre-Starbucks Seattle coffee house.
