Over two decades and three different series, Dr. Frasier Crane became one of the most iconic characters in television history. Crane started out as a recurring character on Cheers, but by the end was a main character. Kelsey Grammer’s character was so popular that after Cheers ended Crane was the only character to get a successful spin-off show.
And that’s how Frasier was born. The show ran for 11 seasons on NBC between 1993 and 2004, winning a record (at the time) of 37 Primetime Emmy Awards. Read on to find out some fun and interesting Frasier facts, some of which even hardcore fans might not know!
1. Three Time’s A Charm
Kelsey Grammer is an accomplished actor, beloved to this day for his iconic performances in television and film. And there is one feat that only he can proudly claim to be his own! Grammer is the only American actor in history to have been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for the same character on three different shows.
How are there three, you ask? Well, first there was Frasier’s arc on Cheers and then came Frasier. In 1993, there was also a crossover episode with the show Wings which earned him an additional Emmy nomination. We think this is a very deserving honor for Grammer!
