In honor of tonight’s 55th annual Grammy Awards, I nominate Gary Portnoy’s “Where Everybody Knows Your Name” as the best tv show theme song in history.
From Cheers’ opening credits:
And from NBC 75th Anniversary party in 2002 (20 years after Cheers’ premiere!), here’s Martin Short, Will Ferrell, and Eric McCormack singing the theme song, with the whole Cheers gang in the audience! (Oh, I just want to hug Rhea Perlman!)
