friends-20th-anniversary

20 years ago today, NBC aired the pilot of Friends. The long-running hit series would catapult its cast, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, to superstardom. It would go on to film 236 episodes.

In honor of this milestone anniversary, the studio behind it, Warner Bros, created a wicked 236 second montage featuring some of the sitcom’s funniest moments. Check it out below.

If you’re in the New York Area, Warner Bros is launching a temporary Central Perk pop up coffee shop in the city to commemorate the show’s anniversary. Click here for details.

Just hours after Warner Bros announced its plans to open a Central Perk pop-up coffee shop in New York City to celebrate the sitcom premiere’s 20th anniversary, a mini Friends reunion took place on late night television. Kimmel brought together Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow for a segment on his talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The ladies reprised their iconic roles to recite some Friends fan fiction. To make things even more authentic, Kimmel recreated the kitchen from Monica and Rachel’s apartment which reportedly cost $80,000. Jimmy also participated, playing a more lecherous version of Ross for the skit.

For the most part, the girls were good sports. Aniston drew the line when it came to putting on a wig styled after her infamous ‘Rachel‘ haircut. Watch all the action below.

Up until now if you wanted to visit Central Perk, you’d have to take the Warner Bros backlot tour. The former Friends set is crammed into one random corner for tourists to take photo ops. This Fall, the fictional coffee shop comes to life in New York City.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Friends premiere, Warner Bros. TV is teaming up with coffee brand Eight O’Clock Coffee to launch a full-functioning pop-up coffee shop. It’ll be located at 199 Lafayette Street on the corner of Broome Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. It’s slated to open on September 17 and close on October 18.

With exception to Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, all the former Friends have headlined television comebacks since the NBC classic sitcom. If Schwimmer’s new show gets picked up by ABC, Aniston will the lone wolf.

TV Guide reports that Schwimmer inked a deal with the alphabet network to star in Irreversible. The potential comedy is based on the Israeli No. 1 hit series Bilti Hafich. The US adaptation will be a single-camera show instead of one filmed in front of a studio audience.

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to all our US readers. Hope you’re not eating too much turkey today. Something I can never accomplish. I tend to overindulge big time during the holiday season.

To celebrate turkey day, I thought I’d rank Friends‘ Thanksgiving episodes. Their holiday-themed shows were typically their best and most anticipated of the season. Til this day, I still enjoy watching the classic NBC sitcom. Check out how I ranked the episodes below. To refresh your memory, I added a memorable scene from each. Enjoy!

Chandler Bing Heads To Cougar Town

Reunited and it feels so good (AGAIN). For all you Friends fans pining for a reunion special or movie, here’s something to tide you over for what will possibly never happen. As much as I want a full-fledged reunion, I don’t think that will ever come to fruition.

Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry are reuniting once more. Since the iconic comedy, the two have appeared together to promote Jennifer Aniston’s co-hosting gig on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and also on Perry’s now-canceled NBC sitcom, Go On. Matthew is now returning the favor for his former TV wife and stopping by the fifth season of Cougar Town.

Go On creator Scott Silveri, who also worked on Friends, stated that “there were no trades” between his show and Cougar Town. “We just sent them some wine. I know they like that over there,” Silveri joked at the time, adding that “it was really fun to see the two of them together.”

Lisa Kudrow Books Scandalous Gig

In: Donovan, TV Shows

First Scott Foley getting upgraded to series regular and now this. Fellow Gladiators, I need my Scandal fix now.

Deadline.com first broke the news that Lisa Kudrow is the latest to join the ranks of Scandal this Fall. Question remains. Will she be “friend” or foe to Olivia Pope? Personally, it doesn’t matter to me as long as Shonda Rhimes names her character Regina Phalange. How awesome would that be?

Kudrow’s addition to the show reunites her with her long-time producing partner Dan Bucatinsky who plays Cyrus’ husband James Novak. Kudrow and Bucatinsky’s production company is responsible for The Comeback, Web Therapy and Who Do You Think You Are? No word on what role Lisa will play on the show, but it’s a safe bet she’ll be a politician given that Season 3 will revolve around Fitz’ re-election campaign.

Excited for Lisa to join Scandal? Are you excited for the third season of ABC’s hit show? Sound off below.

Since Friends and The Cosby Show are two of the most beloved sitcoms of all-time, I thought I’d lump them together in one post. Who doesn’t love an old school flashback?

On an episode of Piers Morgan Tonight last week, Matthew Perry filled in for the British host. This gave him an opportunity to reunite with Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow who was there to promote the third season of her Showtime series, Web Therapy.

Naturally, the conversation included reminiscing about their monster NBC hit sitcom. They both stated that, in hindsight, if they were to do it all over again, they wouldn’t have stopped the show in 2004. That’s probably more true for Perry who hasn’t been able to score a hit since then. During the interview, they also revealed their favorite moment on the show. They both ended up picking the same scene. While not my choice, the scene is part of my favorite episode ever. Find out which clip below.

Meanwhile over on the Katie Couric Show, Malcolm Jamal Warner took part of her Hollywood Heartthrob episode. The former Cosby kid revealed one of his favorite things on the classic 80s sitcom was the title sequences, with exception to one. He wasn’t a fan of the Season 5 opener which had a Caribbean theme. I have to say, I 100 percent agree. That was the worst. Check out that clip as well below.
