FAQs




Having been a webmaster of a Frasier webpage, there have been hundreds of e-mail that people have sent me. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. A lot of the FAQ can be found on Matt Messina's FAQ. However, as that FAQ hasn't been updated since March 1997, I thought I'd fill in the gaps with some questions that people frequently ask me.

There are LOTS of Frasier websites out there on the net, not only about the show itself but about the various characters as well as the actors who play them. To see a list of some of the ones I've come across, go to The Frasier Weblinks.


Are there books on "Frasier"?

Yes, there are quite a few.



Where can I purchase "Frasier" merchandise on the net?

Can I purchase "Frasier" episodes on video?

The complete first and second season of "Frasier" have already been released and the first half of third season has just been released. The second half of the third season will be released soon. Also, it was announced that both season 1 and 2 are set to be released on DVD some time in the next year in the UK (Region 2 only). The videos are in the PAL video format (unfortunately, US/Canada uses the NTSC video format so we are out of luck). Here is a place that sells the collection online as well as their listed prices:

For US viewers, "Frasier" has been released in DVD format

If the episode that you want a copy of isn't listed above and/or you are in the US (NTSC video format), click here.


Is there an episode guide?

Yes, there is. The Complete Frasier Episode Guide has not only the synopsis of each episode and credits for writer, director, guest stars, and guest callers, but also links to various video caps, screen captures, publicity photos, RealVideo, avi, wav, etc.


How can I find out about what episodes are coming up in syndication?

Although you have to check your local listings for times and stations, the syndicated episodes that air are generally the same all across the country. To see the schedule for the syndicated episodes, go to upcoming episodes in syndication.


How do I find out information about upcoming episodes?

The Spoilers Page includes brief synopses of upcoming episodes and their air dates.


I missed an episode, is there a way I can get a copy of it?

Unfortunately, only season 1 and 2 are available in the US right now. If you are in the UK or other European countries that use the PAL video format, there are some videos & DVDs available. If the episode you want isn't listed there or aren't part of seasons 1 and 2, the only way you may be able to get the video is possibly doing a video trade with a kindly soul on one of the Frasier mailing lists. As much as I'd like to help, the volume of requests along this line have become too large and time consuming for me to fulfill so PLEASE don't ask me!


What kinds of awards has "Frasier" won?

Throughout the years, "Frasier" has won numerous accolades. To see a complete listing of all of its honors, go to Frasier Awards Page.


I love the actors on "Frasier." What else have they done besides "Frasier"?


The cast of "Frasier" are accomplished actors with extensive theater background. In fact, both John Mahoney (1986 Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play -- "The House of Blue Leaves") and Jane Adams (1994 Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play -- "An Inspector Calls") are past Tony Award winners. All of the actors have appeared in varied projects prior to and during "Frasier" including notable theater, TV, and film appearances. Below are links to each of the actor's works as listed in
IMDB.com


I thought I heard/saw a "Frasier" cast member in a commercial. Was I just imagining it or did I really...?


No, you aren't imagining things. Although they don't usually appear in the ads, the voices of "Frasier" cast have been heard in numerous TV and radio commercial. Some have even appeared in print ads.


Where does the wardrobe for the characters on "Frasier" come from?



Where do I send fan mail?

To send fan mail to the show and/or the cast, write to:

It consists of Frasier fans who informally discuss various aspects of the show including the latest episodes, past episodes, characters, and the actors and anything else that its members throw on the table.


How do I attend a filming of "Frasier"?

To obtain tickets to attend a Frasier filming:

  1. Make sure they are filming that week (Frasier usually films three weeks and then takes a week off -- To check the filming dates, click here. ***They haven't posted a new schedule for the 2002/2003 season.) and call Paramount to make reservations. Filming usually begin in mid to late August and end mid to late March.
  2. Only 2 tickets are given out per call.
  3. Filming usually takes place Tuesday evenings around 6:30 p.m. (Sometimes, the filming changes to a Wednesday... so try to keep that day open, just in case. *** Filmings for September and October of 2002 will be on Wednesdays)
  4. Tickets for a particular filming are available a week prior to that filming.
  5. On the day of the filming, call Paramount prior to noon to confirm tickets.
  6. Start standing in line no later than 4:30 p.m. because having tickets do not guarantee entrance. It's first come, first serve. And that's not even always guarantee. It depends on the number of VIP guests on the list that particular week.
  7. The location of filming:
      Studio 25
      780 N. Gower (between Sunset Blvd. and Melrose Ave.)

    For directions to the studio, click here.

  8. There is street parking available around the studio, but that's not always a guarantee either. There is also a paid parking lot just across the street from the studio for $5.
  9. Eat ahead of time and wear something warm since no food is allowed in the studio and it gets mighty chilly inside. The filming usually lasts around 3 hours.
P.S. If you are lucky enough to attend a filming, I would really appreciate it if you could e-mail me with the details at frasier411@hotmail.com. In particular, I am interested in episode title, the names of the writers and directors, and a synopsis


I have a great story idea. How do I get it to the producers on "Frasier"?

I'm afraid that not even knowing an inside source could help in getting your story read by the powers that be on "Frasier," unless of course, you are a member of the Writer' Guild of America (WGA). It's a strict policy (no exceptions) for legal reasons. They never accept unsolicited scripts no matter how great the story may be. The only way to get a script read is through a literary agent who represents the writer who is a member of WGA.

However, if you just want to tell your story for "Frasier" fans to read, you can submit your fan fiction for the Frasier Fan Fiction Archive. You can contact frasierfanfic@hotmail.com for more information on submissions.


I keep hearing the actors talk about the "Sweeps." What exactly is that?

In the US, "Sweeps" are periods of time during which advertisers look at the ratings of programs to determine the price that they are willing to pay for placing their commercials during certain programs. The "Sweeps" occur during the months of November, February, May, and July (but of course, the first three are the most crucial as that's when all the new episodes air). If you have ever wondered why the networks air their most anticipated TV movies, all new episodes of your favorite shows as well as various specials during these three months, now you know why. Obviously, the higher the rating, the more the advertisers are willing to pay for commercial spots during those shows and the more networks profit so it is in the best interest of the networks to draw as much audience as possible during these months.
