Bar Trivia: Test Your Cheers Knowledge With This 35th Anniversary Quiz

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 35 years since Sumner Sloan left poor Diane Chambers at Cheers and returned to his ex-wife, never to be seen again ... or was he? Consider that your first Cheers trivia question—and a softball one at that. (The answer is yes, he did return.)

Cheers, the friendly, Boston tavern where everybody knows your name, stumbled out of the gate with audiences in 1982. Fortunately, after a rough first season, it managed to pick up some major steam and went on to have one of the most successful runs of any sitcom in television history.
