In an event deemed worthy of a TV Guide cover, the cast and crew of Cheers celebrates the series' 200th episode. Moderated by John McLaughlin of The McLaughlin Group fame, this special telecast not only features the then-current cast of Cheers, but also several former regulars and semi-regulars. Foremost among the latter is Shelley Long, whose much-publicized acrimonious exit from the series in 1987 made viewers wonder if she would dare wander into any sort of "reunion" (but she did). Innumerable highlights from past episodes are shown, and there's a special tribute to the departed members of the company, notably Nicholas Colasanto as the beloved Coach. Originally telecast as a one-hour special, this episode has since been divided into two half-hours for syndication.
