‘Frasier’ Coming Back to TV, Latest ’90s Hit to Get a Revival

Published

on

 Frasier is back. Kelsey Grammer returns as snobbish radio advice-host in the reboot of hit TV series.

What We Know:

  • The series was a massive hit from 1994-2004, running for 263 episodes, and now it has become the latest show to get a reboot 20 years later. Frasier, a spin-off from the TV series Cheers, was one of the most successful shows in the 1990s. The new series will focus on “the next chapter in the continuing journey of Dr. Frasier Crane.”
  • The show centered on Frasier, who returned to his hometown Seattle to care for his elderly father and psychiatrist brother, Niles. Frasier set a record for the most Emmy Awards won by a scripted series at the time, 37, including five consecutive Emmys for outstanding comedy series, according to deadline.com.  
  • The show will be produced by CBS Studios while airing on the new streaming service Paramount+. As of now, it does not have a set release date yet. There has been no mention on social media if co-star David Hyde Pierce (Niles Crane) or Jane Leeves, who played caregiver Daphne Moon, would be joining the revival. Sadly, actor John Mahoney, who played the down-to-earth father Martin Crane, died in 2018 from lung cancer at the age of 77.
  • One of the most memorable scenes shared on social media of John Mahoney’s character before his death was the tension in the father-son relationship. Rumor on social media shows that the father and son tension between Martin Crane and Frasier Crane will be portrayed in Frasier and his son Frederick in the reboot. According to a recent interview, in 2019, the Frasier reboot will not be in Seattle, and the show will continue with Frasier looking for love. 
  • “There has long been a call from fans for its return, and that call is now answered,” David Stapf, president of CBS Studios, said in a statement. The return of Frasier is the latest in a series of reboots of hit shows from two and three decades ago. The Sex and the City reboot called And Just Like That is set to start shooting in 2021. Dexter will return in 2021. The Gossip Girl reboot will air in 2021, and Will and Grace returned after a ten-year gap in 2017.

When Frasier‘s reboot finally premieres, it will be available to stream on Paramount+, the streaming service formerly known to be CBS All Access. Anyone looking to subscribe to CBS All Access before it becomes Paramount+ can enjoy a seven-day free trial.

Former NFL Champ Nate Burleson joins CBS Mornings

Published

on

Former NFL player Nate Burleson has officially made his hosting debut on the newly branded morning talk show, CBS Mornings.

What We Know:

  • It was announced earlier this month that Burleson would replace Anthony Mason. Previously Mason joined Gayle King and Tony Doukoupil as host of the former CBS This Morning.  The show was rebranded in tandem to the relocation of their set to Times Square and Burleson joining the cast.
  • Since 2017, former NFL player Burleson has been the host of Good Morning Football on the NFL Network and has served as an analyst on The NFL Today on CBS. Burleson will continue his role on The NFL Today.

  • Burleson is the second former NFL player to join a network morning TV show, with Michael Strahan playing a major role as a co-host on ABC‘s Good Morning America.

Burleson credits Michael Strahan as the ‘blueprint’ for his career path, explaining, “He’s one of those individuals that I took a liking to once I retired because he rewrote the blueprint. I don’t want to say that he is the blueprint, because there has been plenty of players that have transitioned out of the game into TV. There have been African American men and women before him that have done the same thing, but he is a guy that has shown me the lay of the land, especially being a transplant from the West Coast to now New York.”
