Best Television Shows of the '90s


The Top Ten

1 Friends Friends F•R•I•E•N•D•S 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. 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.

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

F.R.I.E.N.D. S defined the modern sitcoms. I don't know why modern shows like How I met your mother can even be compared to it. To me Friends will always be the number one in my heart because no other show could have made me cry like that at the end.
