Spelling makes for some hilarious conflict in an episode of Frasier that aired on this day in television history.
“War of the Words” is the 18th episode of the 9th season of the comedy series, Frasier. Written by Saladin K. Patterson and directed by Sheldon Epps, it first aired on March 12th, 2002 on NBC.
In the episode, Frasier’s son is set to compete in the Spelling Bee! He wins, but other parents accuse Frasier of helping him cheat. This results in the runner-up getting the trophy, which makes the winner’s ceremony a bit…awkward to say the least!
