Cheers is a popular American situation comedy. The show is set in the Cheers bar (itself named for the toast "Cheers") in Boston, Massachusetts, where a group of locals meet to drink and generally have fun. The show's theme song written by Judy Hart Angelo & Gary Portnoy, & performed by Portnoy with its famous refrain, "where everybody knows your name", also became the show's tagline.
