"The One Cup Of Java Challenge Was Filmed Peformed Before A Live Studio Audience"

Today's One Cup question: We’ve still got a few questions left over from our salute to the 80s back on May 17th. This morning’s One Cup of Java Challenge question is about the television show “Cheers.” Especially during the early years of the series, the Cheers gang often played pranks on and sports against another Boston bar – and that bar usually ended up on top. Your question this morning, left over from the 80s - name the rival bar from the television series Cheers.

Answer: Gary's Olde Towne Tavern.

Bonus Blog Trivia: "Cheers" finished absolutely dead last in the Nielsen ratings the week it debuted in 1982. Had that happened today in the profit-driven money money world of commercial TV, it would have been cancelled the next morning, but instead it was allowed to grow and find an audience, becoming one of the classic comedies of the 80s.

Bonus Blog Trivia #2: Norm's real first name was Hillary.
