Kelsey Grammar has spent the last few years trying to prove that playing Dr. Frasier Crane wasn’t an anomaly. I’m still wondering how the Cheers spinoff kept winning Emmy’s and being so popular. Grammar has moved on, but I can’t help but feel that the big guy who stumbles shtick is going to flub when it comes to finding an audience.
