was somehow on kelsey grammer’s wikipedia (hmm) (he’s a republican?!) where i discovered this amazing oral history of cheers:

Grammer’s partying was getting out of control; there were a couple of arrests—one of which ended with Grammer pleading no contest to cocaine possession—in 1988 and 1990. An unsuccessful on-set intervention was held by the show’s producers and cast.

Glen Charles: Kelsey was going through a divorce and child-custody issues. He had some problems.

Dan O’Shannon (writer/producer; executive producer on Modern Family): He would ooze into the studio, his life all out of sorts. Jimmy would say “Action,” and he would snap into Frasier and expound in this very erudite dialogue and be pitch-perfect. And Jimmy would yell “Cut!” and he would ooze back into Kelsey—glazed-over eyes, half asleep, going through whatever he was going through. It was the most amazing transformation I’d ever seen.

and with that, i bid you happy thanksgiving
