The highly successful NAN programming block of family comedies where “Friends” and “Young Sheldon” will air, also includes popular Warner Bros Television series such as “Mom” and “Full House.”
Nickelodeon is also hosting a Thanksgiving event called Nick at Nite presents “Super-Stuffed Friends-Giving.” The programming slate includes a lineup of classic “Friends” episodes and a marathon of Thanksgiving-themed episodes on Thursday.
“Friends” was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, who executive produced the series with Kevin Bright through Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series, which debuted in 1994, follows the lives and loves of a close-knit group of friends while they navigate their way through their twenties living in New York City: siblings Ross (David Schwimmer) and Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), along with friends Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston).
