RIP. He was great there too, on one of the better shows of all time. That was taco and Cheers night at our house. Good times. 

 

Prayers to his family and loved ones.

Sorry to hear he has died, but I never liked him as an actor/personality.  Never got into Night Court either.

Harry 'the Hat' was used very well in that series.  Enjoyed how he helped Sam and the gang finally best Gary's Olde Towne Tavern.

At the risk of going off topic (apologies to the OP), I still believe "Cheers," is the best sitcom, ever.

hasn't aged all that well for watching in 2018.....  the Lilith/Frasier angle was one of the best storylines in sitcom history, easily

Phone rings:

"Cheers...is there an Ernie Pantuso here?"

"That's you, Coach."

"Speaking."

 

Definitely in my top 5 all time sitcom dialogue exchanges.

somebody famous's father was supposed to get the Coach role but took on a loser of a movie instead, so basically Woody Harrelson wouldn't have had a career without that decision.

Care to substantiate?  Or are you just working up draft day prediction skills?

Sorry, but I'm calling FAKE NEWS on this one.

 

"In 1982, between 50 and 75 actors tested for the role of Coach--one of them Sid Caesar, the veteran TV clown--but Charles said, ``Nick was our first choice from the very first time we saw him.``

"Albania...Albania...you border on...the...Adriatic."

 

And I still can't hear about an athlete injuring their groin without thinking "A g-g-groin...injury."

The movie was Porky's 2 or 3, it seemed a better payday than Cheers

 

Producers of TV shows lie constantly after the fact about their choices, trying not to make it seem one of the 100 greatest flukes of history.

I sing that every single time I see the word Albania or anything that sounds anything like it. 

 

Night Court was one of the most underrated comedies of all time.  Tremendous cast with so many famous "visitors".
