1 Friends Friends Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which originally aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons. It now airs on Nick at Nite. ...read more.

Friends was an awesome show should deserve to be number one! My favorite character is Joey Tribbiani because he's so funny and no one can touch his food!

Second should be The Simpsons because that's where it all began for this successful family.

Yes! I honestly think that this is one of the best T.V. shows ever. The only thing that I'd change is that I'd take out all of the swearing and using God's name in vain and sex.

Is it on #1 on everything, this is the most overrated show in history, spongebob should be number 1, screw Rachael and Phoebe, Phoebe is weird, Rachael is annoying.

SIX People. SIX Names. SIX words. Enough Said!
