Visual Description:  A couple watching a rerun of Frasier.

HOMPO  =  OOMPH,  EADIB  =  ABIDE,  ERIUFG  =  FIGURE,  LRMGIY  =  GRIMLY   —   Giving us:  OOMADGREGRM

Clue/Question:  Frasier Crane‘s success as a TV character was due in part to this.

Answer:  GOOD “GRAMMER”

(I like it!  Great clue words, especially “oomph”, all nicely jumbled!  We’ve had “abide” before, but with different jumbling.  I’m pretty sure the same applies to both “figure” and “grimly”, as well.  The answer letter layout gave nothing away, which – as you all know – is very important to me.  No challenge in “gimmes”.  It’s a good thing the name comes up in the clue/question, because I don’t think I would have gotten Frasier Crane from the drawing.  Sorry, Jeff.  I’m sure a caricature artist could accentuate one or more of his features, as they would any subject, but Kelsey Grammer has an unremarkable kind of face.  That, and it’s been a while since I’ve seen the show!  I always liked the show, though.  And, until this very moment, I was not aware that two dogs played the part of Eddie!  Interesting.  But, for me, the whole puzzle just worked.  Nice way to close out the work week, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
