Catch Up With Nick at Nite's Newest Family of "Friends" as the Acclaimed Series Launches on Sept. 5 With a Week-Long "Best of Friends" Marathon

Beverly Hills, Calif., July 29, 2011 - Nickelodeon welcomes Friends, the sitcom that introduced the world to Central Perk, "The Rachel" and being "on a break," to the Nick at Nite line-up of modern-day comedies. The 236-episode catalogue kicks off with a 10-hour marathon each weeknight, beginning Monday, Sept. 5, through Sunday, Sept. 11, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. (all times ET/PT). The series will regularly air weeknights from 10-11 p.m. with two back-to-back episodes.

"The camaraderie and laugh-out-loud comedy of Friends make it a great addition to Nick at Nite's roster," said Pete Danielsen, Executive Vice President, Programming, Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group. "We're excited to be offering a contemporary spin on this iconic series by encouraging fans to share their favorite Friends episodes on Facebook. Who doesn't remember the first time Ross and Rachel kissed, Phoebe singing 'Smelly Cat' or Joey and Chandler's dueling recliners?"

Nick at Nite's "Best of Friends" marathon will highlight a different cast member each night of the week with themed episodes centering on either Rachel, Ross, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler or Monica. Throughout the week, Facebook friends of Friends will be able to vote for their favorite episodes on the official Facebook TV show page, which will culminate with their top ten picks airing on Sunday, Sept. 11 beginning at 8 p.m.

Friends, an ensemble comedy that made Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow household names, follows six friends as they navigate their way through life in New York City and adulthood as they inch toward their thirties. Often hilarious and frequently moving, the series, which ran for 10 seasons on NBC (from 1994 to 2004), addresses universal themes like falling in - or out of - love, launching a career and dealing with (as well as becoming) parents. The critically acclaimed series was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman and received six Primetime Emmy Awards. Nick at Nite is Nickelodeon's nighttime programming block that features popular modern-day family comedies, including George Lopez, My Wife and Kids, The Nanny, and several other iconic television comedies. Year to date, Nick at Nite ranks as the number-one cable network in total day among women 18-49, averaging a 0.7/380,000 and 1.4 million total viewers (Source: Nielsen Media Research, Live + 7 Day data thru 6/26/11, Live + Same Day data thru 7/10/11, Mon-Sun 6a-6a, all cable).

Nickelodeon, now in its 32nd year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films.
