    That is a long, complicated story. The gist of it is, Long supposedly feuded with several cast members, especially Ted Danson and Kelsey Grammer and she wanted out. On top of that, Long accused the writers of running the Sam-Diane dynamic into the ground and wanted the characters to finally take the next step.

    You mean it wasn't to start a mediocre movie career??? :S It's been a long time since I've heard about Long & Cheers.
