LOVE IS ON THE AIR – Questioning the haste of their romance, Frasier and Kate (guest star Mercedes Ruehl) find the only time they can air their ambivalent feelings in private is during breaks in a special late-night broadcast Frasier is conducting solo.

  • Floyd, The Happy Chef is usually on from 8-10pm
  • Given the Anglophilia often on display in the series, it is at least possible that Floyd is a tip of the hat to BBC food presenter and eccentric chef Keith Floyd, who drank and sauteed his way around Europe and the world with a camera crew in tow in the 1980s.
