Kirstie Alley, George Wendt

TV Land

You can't have Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman on the same show without hosting an even bigger Cheers reunion. That's just simple TV logic. Cheers star George Wendt—everybody, this is where you shout "Norm!" at the top of your lungs—will guest star on Kirstie on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 10:30 p.m. on TV Land as Perlman's character's ex-husband.

"My week on set feels exactly like Cheers. Kirstie is just as mad as a hatter and I don't think America would want it any other way," Wendt says in the video interview below.

In the episode, Wendt plays Duke, a professional pool player and womanizer, the ex-husband of Perlman's character, Thelma.

Thelma, who is Alley's character's assistant on the show, reconnects with Duke over some red wine. What, no beer? Can the two overcome Maddie's (Alley) influence?

"You've been complaining more about Maddie than usual. Are you sure you're happy here? Because from where I sit, that woman treats you like a slave," Duke says to Thelma in the clip below.

"That's not true. If I save enough, I can buy my freedom," she says.
