13 Dark Behind-The-Scenes Stories From ‘Frasier’

 

 

 Fraiser was one of the most popular shows on television in the 1990s and early 2000s. During its run from 1993 to 2004, the show brought home 37 Emmys and garnered millions of weekly viewers. But behind the scenes, the show wasn’t always smooth sailing. Star Kelsey Grammer struggled with addiction in the show’s early years, forcing his co-stars to stage an intervention. After a traffic incident, Grammer eventually checked into rehab and forced Fraiser into a production hiatus.

The show almost didn’t make the air at all after the Paramount president declared the original idea for the Cheers spinoff “one of the worst ideas I’ve ever heard in my life.” Casting problems meant that the network fired Lisa Kudrow, the first actress hired to play Roz, before the show’s initial read-through.
