CHEERS star Ted Danson went back to his bar-tending roots over the weekend (01/02MAY04) when he served drinks to celebrate a bar's centennial.

Danson joined his wife Mary Steenburgen in her native North Little Rock, Arkansas, to raise money for politician JIMMIE LOU FISHER, a Democrat who is still paying off a $102,000 debt from her failed run for governor in 2002.

Danson, who played bartender SAM MALONE on the TV comedy for 12 seasons, served up drinks at a $100 (GBP55) per-person benefit.
