Season 6 of American comedy series Frasier aired on NBC television network.

Plot

Much of the early plot is Frasier coping (badly) with the loss of his job at KACL. He and Roz seem to be the only former co-workers who can't find work. Frasier goes through a terrible depression because of his unemployment, since much of his self-esteem came from his prestige and profile. Eventually, Frasier, Roz, and the rest of the KACL staff are reinstated and the station returns to normal.

Meanwhile, Niles is still in the process of his divorce from Maris. He eventually changes lawyers to instead use Donny Douglas, an ex of Roz's, and he finally manages to bring the bitter process to an end. However, just as Niles gets his divorce, Donny begins to date Daphne and the two get engaged shortly afterwards, leaving Niles devastated.

Elsewhere, Frasier reunites with his old Boston friend Woody Boyd, Roz deals with being a single mother, Martin tries to get back into the dating game after breaking up with Sherry the year before and Frasier’s love life becomes complicated when he finds himself caught between two women.
