Fans will be able to join in on the fun, live-tweeting along with @TVLand using the hashtag #FriendsOnTVLand, and special hashtags on-air relating to specific episodes. TV Land’s Instagram (@laughmoreTV) will also be sharing photos for #ThrowbackThursdays of the cast of “Friends” before they were “Friends,” among other posts on Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook, and Buzzfeed.
“Friends” will also be part of the Summer of Sitcoms Marathons, a four-nights-per-week extravaganza every Thursday through Sunday at 10pm ET/PT beginning June 20th. TV Land has Doug and Carrie heading up Thursday on “King of Queens,” a super “Friends” Friday, Ray and his crazy (but loveable) family on “Everybody Loves Raymond” on Saturday, and your favorite seniors on “The Golden Girls” on Sunday.
“Friends” is the hit NBC comedy that aired for 10 seasons from 1994-2004 and followed close friends Monica (Courteney Cox), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Joey (Matt LeBlanc), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) as they navigated their 20s and 30s in the most hilarious way possible. Through the ups and downs in love, work and everyday life, the group found the comedy in every absurd situation.
