Storyline

A skit-oriented variety/comedy show, this was an attempt by the ABC network to cash in on the success of Saturday Night Live. The formula is very similar, right down to having fake commercials and a bogus newscast. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Trivia

During one memorable episode, broadcast live, guest star Andy Kaufman broke character during a sketch. He got into a shoving match with Michael Richards which degenerated into an on-camera brawl. It was later revealed that this was a set-up and Kaufman and some of the brawl participants and the cast were in on the gag, but most of the crew were caught completely off-guard. Melanie Chartoff discusses this in an interview with David Brody found on Youtube. See more »

Great Show-Glad To Find Others
17 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fridays was a great show! Everything that everyone wrote is the absolute truth. I would also love to see re-runs on Comedy Central! I found this web site by trying to find Fridays on video because no one at work has ever heard of the show. How sad for them that they never got to experience this great show on a Friday night. My favorite was Michael Richards acting as the deranged boy picking on his sisters dolls while blowing up his soldiers. It reminded me so much of my brother and how he picked on us girls, lol. Of course the pharmacist pulling and twisting his hair and saying, "I can handle it" keeps popping in front of my mind. I really wish someone would show re-runs or at least put the episodes on video/DVD for purchase!
