The NBC television sitcom Cheers enjoyed a lengthy eleven-year run from September, 1982 to May, 1993 producing 275 episodes of the hit show. The setting of the program was in a bar, so the producers used the front of The Bull & Finch Pub in Boston, Massachusetts to provide exterior shots of the show’s titular bar. The pub has become famous across the country spawning memorabilia and tourist trinkets that capture the nostalgia of Cheers. The show, initially, began with a rocky start leading to it almost being cancelled due to low ratings, but the writers and producers were able to turn it around and it became one of the most popular shows in the United States. Cheers received numerous accolades including 28 Primetime Emmy awards and received a nomination for each of its 11 seasons for Outstanding Comedy Series.
