As the minutes clicked to "Cheers' " closing time, the show's creators and executive producers--Les and Glen Charles and director James Burrows--reminisced with Times Staff Writer Susan King about the show and its impact on television and the country. It took "Cheers" three seasons to become a hit. These days, if series aren't instantaneous hits they are usually yanked from the schedule. Do you think "Cheers" would have been given the opportunity to nurture if it premiered now?

At a recent studio taping for the new CBS sitcom "Mike & Molly," a bald, slightly built man with a fringe of white hair prowled behind the cameras, listening intently, every so often hollering out to the actors as they performed a scene.

CBS has a lot riding on James Burrows and his finely tuned ears.
