Maybe I'm wrong but I thought The Heights was on for only one season.

I'm glad some of these weren't picked up. There's a reason why comic relief characters (Ralph and Potsie, Lenny and Squiggy, etc.) are the comic relief. They add that lightheartedness to the plots. Make them the stars, and they can become rather irritating. I'd even argue that "Happy Days" would have been a better show if the Fonz stayed in a supporting role.

They eventually went over the top with Fonzie but through most of the run he made the show what it was. That being said, the show revolved around Richie Cunningham and when Ron Howard left the show they should have packed it in.

I liked Gloria and wished it could have been on longer.

The Cleveland Show, nothing but a white version of Family Guy.

Frasier aired on NBC from September 16, 1993 to May 13, 2004, broadcasting 264 episodes over eleven seasons during its initial run. During the series' run, the show received critical acclaim for its writing and humor. The series amassed 318 nominations for a variety of industry awards, including 108 Emmy awards (with 37 wins), 24 Golden Globe Awards (with two wins), 26 Screen Actors Guild Awards (with 2 wins), 11 TCA Awards (with five wins), 9 Writers Guild of America awards (with six wins), and 9 Directors Guild of America awards (with two wins).

In addition to the awards for the series, several individual cast members received acclaim for their performance on the series. David Hyde Pierce stands as the most decorated cast member on the series, winning 4 Emmy awards, 5 Q Awards, 2 TCA awards, 2 SAG awards and 6 American Comedy awards. Kelsey Grammer also won 4 Emmy Awards, 4 Q awards, 2 Golden Globes, 2 Satellite awards, 2 American Comedy Awards and a SAG award. Several other actors and crew members in the series received many awards and nominations, including Jane Leeves, John Mahoney, and the creators of the show.

Frasier is one of the most successful spin-off series in television history and one of the most critically acclaimed comedy series of all time. In 1994, the episode "The Matchmaker" was ranked No. 43 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time. In 2000, the series was named the greatest international program of all time by a panel of 1,600 industry experts for the British Film Institute as part of BFI TV 100. In 2002, Frasier was ranked No. 34 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time. In 2006, a poll taken by the British Channel 4 of the sitcom industry voted Frasier the best sitcom of all time.

Personally, I rank this as the top comedy show of all time. The jokes are witty and clever. Often the best part was how a joke or situation was set up, sometimes from several sub plots or angles, where you couldn't see it coming until it came. It was never about stupid, insipid sarcastic characters "besting" each other with insipid sarcastic one-liners

I could go on, but you get the point. If you found this show boring, believe me, the fault lies with you. What is it that you find funny?
Frasier was way better than Cheers.

I loved Frasier. I went through the whole series on Netflix, and then started over at the beginning.
But remember, everyone has their own opinions and reasons why they like or dislike a show.

Unbelievably lazy TV spinoffs

Quote:
There's something compelling about getting to explore a new corner of an established fictional universe, and TV spinoffs sate that curiosity about as well as anything. From*Frasier*to*Better Call Saul, a great TV spinoff can expand on the inner lives of supporting characters, flesh out the world the showrunners have built, or just give fans more of what they love. Unfortunately, given that spinoffs tend to come with a built-in audience, it's easy for network executives to lazily crank out a haphazard cash grab instead of a thoughtful, well-crafted extension of a property viewers love. Here are some of the most egregiously lazy TV spinoffs of all time.
