Season six of Cheers picks up some six months after the end of season five, when Sam Malone (Ted Danson) bade farewell to Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) a scant few hours before they were to have become man and wife. Having sold Cheers to a large corporation, Sam purchased a boat and headed off for an around-the-world voyage to forget his troubles. Alas, the boat has sunk, and now an impoverished Sam is back at Cheers, seeking employment at the pub he once owned. The only job open is as assistant bartender -- and in an even more humiliating development, the super-chauvinistic Sam must now take orders from Cheers' new female manager, who is utterly impervious to his manly charms. Kirstie Alley makes her first appearance as Rebecca Howe.

The good news is that Sam (Ted Danson) has been offered a job filling in for his sportscaster buddy Dave Richards (Fred Dryer). The bad news is that Sam hasn't figured out a way to temporary abandon his bartending duties without rousing the ire of Cheers manager Rebecca (Kirstie Alley). Will Sam's patented masculine charm win the day or will Rebecca lower the boom?

In the first episode of a two-part story, Carla (Rhea Perlman) and Eddie (Jay Thomas) have decided to get married. Unfortunately, Eddie happens to see Carla just before the wedding, causing the superstitious side of her nature to kick in (she's now convinced that if they don't wed exactly at the appointed hour, they'll have to wait another 55 years). Other obstacles to the couple's connubial bliss are their respective relatives -- not to mention the mood swings of Rebecca (Kirstie Alley), who is nervously launching a campaign to impress her boss Evan Drake.

Norm (George Wendt) works off his bar bill (or at least part of it) by offering to paint Rebecca's office, and in so doing finds out a surprising "secret." As for Rebecca (Kirstie Alley), she is so impressed by Norm's work that she engages him to paint her apartment -- little imagining that a hot-to-trot Sam (Ted Danson) is coming along for reasons of his own. Meanwhile, Carla (Rhea Perlman) is pregnant again -- and this time it's twins.

Critic Reviews for Cheers Season 6

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (0)

Cheers spun off in a slightly new direction the sixth season, but the quality of writing and the laughs as consistent as in previous years. All of the shows are entertaining, with a handful of them riotously funny and engaging.

    I hate change, I didn't like the Diane character. But they changed the whole show based on her leaving. That sucks
