    Hi,


    Been watching the first season and thought of this. Say Cheers was aired on HBO instead of
    the nbc network. What things could they have talked about on the show that they couldn't have
    talked about on nbc?

    I just saw your post...


    probably not...as they weren't a show like Married with Children,


    or...the Soprano's...



    In fact, if on HBO it probably would have went on for


    any additional seasons....as the early to mid 1980s,


    HBO was a movie focused network.


    ...and NBC in its heyday had a LOT of weekly viewers,


    even though they were not all tuned to Cheers,


    there was enough positive feedback to maintain


    the show's popularity until it became a certified 'HIT'


    I would say the 1987/1988 episodes and beyond!!
