NBC Drops First Promo For Friends Reunion

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The stars of television’s greatest comedies assembled to honor James Burrows for recently directing his 1000th episode. The gang from Cheers, the Taxi crew, and members from Will & Grace and Frasier were on hand to celebrate the veteran director. NBC just dropped the first promo for the all-star tribute.

Of all the reunions, it’s the Friends one that has most people excited. Only 5/6 of the Central Perk crew were on hand. Matthew Perry was away during the taping but did appear via taped message. To be perfectly honest, he was my least favorite ‘Friend,’ so I’m all good. They should’ve brought on Gunther instead 😉

The network tapped Andy Cohen to moderate the entire thing. Perfect choice if you ask me. My silver fox crush loves all things pop culture. A Tribute To James Burrows airs on NBC on February 21. Check out the teaser for the must-see event below.

Cast members from Cheers, Frasier, Taxi, Will & Grace and other beloved comedies reunited for the special occasion. The peacock network won’t air the tribute until February 21 but thanks to an Instagram photo, we have a pretty epic preview.

Kaley Cuoco
along with her Big Bang Theory co-stars posed with the Friends cast minus Matthew Perry for a group photo. It’s great seeing the Central Perk crew together once again.

Before you get too excited, the Friends cast isn’t reuniting for a movie or anything like that. Instead, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry are getting together to pay tribute to veteran sitcom director James Burrows.

The 75-year-old recently directed his 1,000 episode in November. He hit the milestone directing an episode of NBC’s Crowded. Just in case you were wondering, Burrows directed 15 episodes of Friends.

The James Burrows tribute will tape later this month in Los Angeles and will air on Sunday, February 21 on NBC. Other casts from your favorite shows are also set to reunite- Taxi, Cheers, Frasier and Will & Grace being a few of them.

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.
