Boss (2011)

Kelsey Grammer as "Mayor Tom Kane"

As mayor, Tom Kane is the most powerful man in Chicago, where the constituents have a history of looking the other way as long as the job gets done. And Kane has gotten things done over several terms in office; he knows the backroom politics game in the Windy City and he plays it well. Yet despite his success, Kane leads an otherwise empty existence. He has no one to turn to when he's confronted with the fact that he has a degenerative brain disorder. He's estranged from his wife, Meredith, and daughter, Emma. Kitty O'Neil, Kane's chief of staff, has her suspicions but plays the part of loyal employee, as does adviser Ezra Stone, who doesn't ask any questions. That's the way Kane likes it, of course, but he won't be able to keep his secret forever.

Cheers (1982)

Kelsey Grammer as "Dr. Frasier Crane"

Laid-back Sam Malone, a former relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, owns and runs Cheers, a cozy bar in Boston. He hires smart, uptight -- and jilted -- Diane Chambers as a server, out of sympathy, but their attraction causes constant bickering. Wacky characters fill the bar: sarcastic waitress Carla, beer-loving accountant Norm, know-it-all postman Cliff. When Diane leaves Boston much later, Sam sells the bar, buys a boat and sails the world, but his boat sinks, so he returns. New, ambitious manager Rebecca Howe hires him back, but they love to hate each other too.
