NBC had a hugely successful run with "Friends" for 10 years. The sitcom focused on a group of friends living in Manhattan who included Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox Arquette (seated), Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc (seen here, respectively). "Friends" had a tremendous impact on American culture, from "The Rachel" hairstyle to "Ross and Rachel" becoming the "will they or won't they" couple to watch. The final episode of the show was watched by an estimated audience of 51.1 million in 2004. (Paul Drinkwater/NBCU Photo Bank)
