2004: Friends concludes

A cornerstone of NBC’s “Must See TV” era, Friends wrapped up after 10 seasons and 236 episodes. A pop culture phenomenon in its early seasons, the series about six young compatriots in New York City helped define the sitcom aesthetic of the 1990s. It was also one of the final true ratings hits for NBC, and its end represented one of the biggest breaks between the network’s primetime dominance in the 1990s and its struggles in subsequent decades. -A.D.
