There's Friends in heaven. Sorry, not heaven, The Good Place. And by Friends, of course it's the beloved NBC series starring Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox. In the below sneak peek, Michael (Ted Danson) is, well, sort of unraveling. And that's where Eleanor (Kristen Bell) comes in to help. He enlists her with an important task that could save them all. While trying to determine what exactly is going on with the Good Place, Michael reveals how Friends helped shape the afterlife. "So, to prepare to meet all of you, I studied the human concept of friends," Michael tells Eleanor. "I even watched all 10 seasons of the show »
Monica Geller didn’t have the best of luck when it came to lightning rounds, but portrayer Courteney Cox appears to be a bonafide champ.
The Friends alumna played opposite Lisa Kudrow on the syndicated Celebrity Name Game Tuesday, and in this newly released outtake, quizzes her former co-star to see how much she remembers about their 1994-2004 sitcom.
If you ever had the slightest doubt about the Friends cast's ability to recall information about the show, think again. Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox appeared on Celebrity Name Game and were able to answer all of the questions about their hit show (even though admittedly they were a little on the easier side), but when Cox was given "David Schwimmer" as a clue to describe to Kudrow, she stumbled. But there was no way Monica Geller was going to let her brother down. In a last-ditch attempt with mere seconds left on the clock, Cox did an impression of Schwimmer that will forever be known as one of the best impressions of all time. There's, quite honestly, no way to describe it in words, so we'll »
Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow left us craving a cup of Central Perk coffee when they played a Friends-themed round of Celebrity Name Game on Sept. 16. The actresses, who blessed us with the characters of Monica Geller and Phoebe Buffay, were on top of their stuff, nailing every question the game show could throw at them. The only one that kind of tripped up Kudrow? Ugly Naked Guy, of course. Cox also slipped in a brief but hilarious impression of David Schwimmer that we will forever be grateful for, so check it out above.

Now there's something you don't see too often — an Emmy night that actually makes good television. The Emmys are usually one of those pop-culture Zen koans: Why is an award show for TV such a painful little hate-watch? But this year's model was easily the most entertaining Emmy bash since Conan O'Brien hosted in 2008, a welcome change after last year's debacle. Jimmy Kimmel kept things moving and got the whole event done and dusted in three hours — with a minute or two to spare, actually. Yes, there was still plenty »
Just last night, the TV Oscars, the Emmys were dished out in a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles. Game of Thrones was the big winner on the night, once again, bagging the top drama prize for the second year in a row (the show’s total number of awards now stands at 38), while Veep did the same in the comedy award. Mr Robot, Orphan Black and even Downton Abbey also received gongs, including one for our own Dame Maggie Smith. She picked up the award for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, playing Violet Crawley in the show.
Here are the winners in full.

HBO, accustomed to being the undisputed Emmys champ in recent years, found itself in the unusual position of sharing the title Sunday night. FX Networks earned six awards at the Primetime Emmys, matching HBO’s tally for the evening. FX’s surge came largely on the back of anthology series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” the evening’s most honored show.
Counting last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys, HBO held onto the top spot, thanks to another record-breaking haul for “Game of Thrones.” The best drama series winner passed “Frasier” as the most decorated scripted series in Emmy history, with 38 wins. With 12 Emmys this year, the show tied its record from 2015 for most wins by a show in a single season.

Sipowicz and Simone, together again! Franz and Smits, together again! Sipowicz and Simone, together again! Dennis Franz, coming out of retirement, maybe?!?!?! Dennis Franz saying "Ipsa this!" 23 years after TV viewers first met Andy Sipowicz?!?!!? What, you want me to talk about the actual Emmy results, rather than the unexpected and wonderful reunion of my beloved NYPD Blue that occurred right before the end of the telecast? Okay, fine. Though Frranz and Smits' appearance to present the final award — Outstanding Drama Series, to Emmy steamroller Game of Thrones, which tied its own record from last year for the most Emmys for a series in a single year with 12 (many of them presented last week at the Creative Arts Emmy ceremonies) — provided one last surprising and delightful moment in an Emmy telecast largely full of them. Yes, GoT mostly dominated for its uneven but at times brilliant sixth season. Yes, FX's The People v. »

First things first: the honest, unplanned moments of the 2016 Emmys ceremony were incredible, and it’s what we’ll all remember — possibly for decades to come. From the unprecedented number of moving acceptance speeches to a few off-the-cuff jokes, the live element of the Emmys paid off like few other awards shows have before. Host Jimmy Kimmel was at the top of his game, delivering an effectively biting monologue, and his relaxed demeanor made the perfect foil for the emotional unplanned scenes aptly showcased above the rest.
That being said, all of the amazing unrehearsed moments made some of the pre-written segments feel glaringly sophomoric.
Starting from the top, the prerecorded opening bit was clearly just designed to get Kimmel into a scene from Carpool Karaoke, and that joke didn’t pay off any better than his time in the “Modern Family” van. Sure, Julia Louis-Dreyfus saved the video from a complete “meh” — “‘El B. »

This year’s Emmy ceremony did not need dragons to dazzle.
Sure, as expected, “Game of Thrones” won as best drama. But aside from the awards for “Thrones” and “Veep,” very few of the other wins felt inevitable, though so many throughout the night were admirable or even heartening. Part of the reason the show felt so energetic was because so many of the winners and shows felt new — or new-ish — and there was a freshness to the winners’ excitement. This was not a night dominated by a long slog of expected winners picking up trophies. That alone is a reason to celebrate the 2016 Emmys, which, by some miracle, finished on time.
Rami Malek, Tatiana Maslany, Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang, Sarah Paulson, Sterling K. Brown, Courtney B. Vance were all handed Emmys, and two of the white men who picked up awards — Louie Anderson and Jeffrey Tambor — won for their sensitive and thoughtful portrayals of female characters »

“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” one of the season’s best-reviewed and most buzzed-about shows, won a much-anticipated Emmy for outstanding limited series Sunday night. The Ryan Murphy-produced drama beat a formidable field that included another highly lauded FX project, “Fargo,” as well as ABC’s “American Crime,” AMC’s “The Night Manager,” and History’s “Roots.”
“Crime Story,” along with the highly regarded Espn documentary “O.J.: Made in America,” sparked a renewed media interest earlier this year in the 1995 O.J. Simpson murder trial. With a star-studded cast that included John Travolta, Cuba Gooding Jr., Sterling K. Brown, Courtney B. Vance, Nathan Lane, and David Schwimmer, “Crime Story” earned rave reviews — in particular for longtime Murphy collaborator Sarah Paulson’s turn as prosecutor Marcia Clark.
The limited series was executive produced by Murphy with, Larry Karaszewski »

Stranger Things debuted just outside this year’s Emmys’ eligibility timeframe, but Netflix’s buzzy new show still had a place at the Television Academy’s awards telecast tonight. The show cut to host Jimmy Kimmel’s mom (yes, his real mom) backstage making peanut sandwiches for the audience. Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater seats over 7,000 so Jimmy Kimmel recruited some help handing out all the brown bag lunches. In rolls the Stranger Things kids — Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Millie Bobby Brown in costume as their characters, Dustin, Lucas, and Eleven. Photo credit: Kevin Winter/Getty Images The “give food out to celebs at an awards show” stunt is growing overdone. But the Stranger Things kids on their bikes were involved this time, so we’ll forgive the Emmys producers for any lack of originality there. As soon as Kimmel announced he had Pb&Js and asked, “Is anyone hungry right now? »
