Here’s a Little Story ‘Bout Sam and Diane:

“Cheers” Premieres (September 30, 1982)

It’s hard to believe that this TV show is going to be 40 at the end of the month. I never even saw the first episode, until yesterday. I always wondered how a person as bright as Diane Chambers came to work in a neighbourhood pub for Sam Malone. Now I know.

In the pilot, Diane is abandoned by her fiancé, leaving her without a job, a man, or money. Realizing that one of her few practical skills is memorization, which comes in handy when dealing with drink orders, she reluctantly becomes a barmaid.


How’s this for timing? The Moon is in the 11th House of ‘groups and associations’; Mars and Uranus are opposite a Gemini Ascendant; and Venus is square to Neptune. It was always going to be successful.

    I also admired the text-book way that the main characters were introduced, coming into work and/or coming in for a drink at the end of the day. (“Norm!”)
