Here's something to raise a glass to: Cheers is bound for the stage.

For fans missing their weekly trip to the bar "where everybody knows your name," one of the legendary sitcom's stars has exciting news.

More than 20 years after the Boston-based sitcom ended its run in 1993, Ratzenberger mused to PEOPLE that a theatrical production "could be good. It could be horrible. If it was a musical, that would be kind of fun, sure. If it's a drama like Tennessee Williams, that would be kind of depressing."

The Super Bowl doubled as throwback Sunday for RadioShack, with the brand unveiling a hilarious new ad that pays tribute to the most beloved celebrities from '80s pop culture. From Hulk Hogan to Chucky, the '80s superstars invade and ransack a typical RadioShack retail outlet (the rampage meant to assure customers that the chain will no longer be stuck in the past).
