Founded in 1969 as the Bull & Finch Pub, the original inspiration for the setting of the TV show Cheers, was a favorite neighbor-hood bar. In fact, the year that the Cheers show premiered on television 1982 Boston Magazine chose the Bull & Finch Pub as the "Best Neighborhood Bar” in Boston. In the summer of 1981, a couple from Hollywood--Mary Ann and Glenn Charles--happened into the Bull & Finch during their search throughout Boston for a neighborhood bar to copy for their new TV series. They enjoyed the warm, cozy atmosphere that this Beacon Hill neighborhood pub provided and they decided to take pictures of the interior and exterior to take back to Hollywood. Upon their return, they gave the pictures to a set designer who utilized all of the architectural elements of the Bull & Finch and designed the set that was built on Paramount’s lot on Stage 25. They then cast the show, including all of the actors and actresses that they have come to know and love, shot the pilot, sold the pilot to NBC, and the show premiered September 30, 1982. The show was one of the most successful and most popular to ever be aired on television. During its 11 seasons on prime time, Cheers received over 100 nominations for Emmys and almost all of the participants in the show won an Emmy in their category. The show itself won "Best Comedy” several times. During those 11 years, 275 episodes were filmed and now provide a library of sitcom comedies that have been in syndication for many, many years and will be seen on television channels for many years to come.
