The Top 20 TV Comedy Ensembles of All Time, Ranked
Kelsey Grammer started as Frasier Crane on Cheers, so he had great ensemble comedy in his blood. By the time Frasier got his own show, the perfect cast was built around him to ensure success. There’s a reason this show ran for 11 years and won 37 Emmy Awards! Grammer played off of his TV-brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce) expertly, and it felt as if the two were really brothers. Throw their fake dad into the mix and you have a realistic portrait of a too-smart, too-silly, and too-dysfunctional family. Even bit players like Frasier’s ex-wife Lilith (Bebe Neuwirth), pop into the action of the series like they were meant to be there. This series will remain “Must See TV” forever thanks to the Crane family chemistry.
