A programming marathon is in the works for next week to celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Friends,” one of the most popular comedy series in TV history. TheWrap.com reports that TBS has set the marathon for Monday, Sept. 22, to mark the date when the hit NBC comedy first aired two decades ago.
The run will start at 10 a.m. on Monday and end at 8 p.m., with 20 episodes of the show airing, the story notes.
“The TBS marathon coincides with the Warner Bros. — which produced the show — and Eight O’Clock Coffee pop-up replica of Central Perk, the neighborhood coffee shop frequented by the characters on the sitcom,” the story notes. “The shop is located at 199 Lafayette Street in SoHo, New York City, and will be open through Oct. 18.”
