CHEERS went on to become a long-running hit for NBC and Paramount, spawning two spin-offs, the underrated THE TORTELLIS and the overrated FRASIER. Rumor has it that Kelsey Grammer wants to revive the character in new series.
TAXI had just moved to NBC after several successful seasons as the jewel in ABC's crown. This was it's final run.
HILL STREET BLUES begat NYPD BLUE which begat HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET which begat LAW & ORDER, which begat SOUTHLAND, etc. etc.
