Default Is “Cheers” still funny in 2014?

http://t.co/JXm8wLVoQx

Or is the NBC comedy a product of its time?

It seems that the sitcom and its humor still holds up in today's time. I think it is a brilliant piece of work.

I guess it all boils down to if you like the show or not. To some people, they love it and to some, they hate it. Personally, I think it's still funny today. Bar humor is something that will never fade and for the most part always stays the same.

Looking at it today IMO, it hasn't aged well. The characaters except for Frasier,Woody,Lillith are likeable and the situations got stupid after season 5.

Hallmark Channel airs two episodes per night, and last week the show flipped over to the pilot. I think it still holds up very well even after thirty years.

The first couple of episodes were a bit clunky, and Danson's hair was not good, but the show hit its groove very early.

It holds up perfectly, it still remains for me one of the best sitcoms of the 80's, and of all time. All seasons are good from beginning to end.

I think it holds up...

I like it WAY better than "How I Met Your Mother" which has scenes in a bar.

Though I like "Frasier" a little more..."Cheers" STILL has that audience.

Cheers, for the most part, has held up really well, in my opinion. I prefer the Shelley Long years overall, but the later seasons had some great moments as well.

It seems to me "Frasier" ended up being a lot more laugh-out-loud funny and the better show.

"Frasier" is definitely the gold standard for spinoffs.

Me-TV is just wrapping up Season One and I'm enjoying it. I've recorded a few, too.

A bunch of dumbasses drinking in their local because they have nothing better to do (or relieving the stress of work or hiding from the World/spouse) is pretty universal and timeless. Bartenders who think they are God's gift to women, and rude, sassy, ethnic barmaids are not that hard to find either.

Yes it's still funny, sometimes very funny.

Danson's hair was awesome when the series first started. It really gave him that "Don Juan" ladies' magnet look. In the later years his hair was boring and didn't look good on him at all; given that, it was ironic that in those later years he was so narcissistic about how "great" his hair looked, lol.
