In the 11 years since Friends aired its last episode, Matthew Perry has attempted to helm four new series. That’s double the number any of his Central Perk cohorts have starred in. His latest, The Odd Couple, just might stick for more than one season.
That aside, this has been a big year for the Friends on TV. Courteney Cox’s Cougar Town just aired its last episode after six seasons on two networks, Lisa Kudrow’s The Comeback came back for a second season years after the first, and David Schwimmer has joined his first post-Friends TV project set to air later this year.
With Matt LeBlanc’s Episodes still pushing forward, Jennifer Aniston remains the lone Friend who hasn’t returned to series regular television (though she has appeared in guest spots on Dirt, 30 Rock and Cougar Town).
Here I’ve taken the liberty of creating a visual look at the Friends’ lives on TV post-Friends. If these trends continue, it’s safe to say they’ll still be there for us on the tube for years to come.
