The George Wendt Show is an American television sitcom that aired on on CBS from March 8, to April 12, 1995. Based on the public radio show Car Talk, the series was a star vehicle for George Wendt after co-starring in the NBC sitcom Cheers (the rights to which are now owned by CBS) throughout its run. However, the series was a ratings failure and was canceled after six episodes aired, out of the eight episodes produced (ABC now owns the rights to the series).nThe series revolved around George and Dan Coleman (George Wendt and Pat Finn), two wise cracking brothers who own a car garage in Madison, Wisconsin. In addition to running the garage, they were also hosts of "Points and Plugs": a call-in radio show about car repair. However, the brothers would mostly get caught up in a number of crazy situations unrelated to cars. For instance, there was an episode focused on George having an itchy rash and another having the brothers chaperone a high school prom.
