Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox and David Schwimmer reunited for NBC’s ‘Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute’ honoring ‘Friends’ director James Burrows.
A few casts of ‘Friends’ met almost more than a decade after Friends had ended its 10-season run, NBC was planning a reunion. And they were planning to launch a 2-hour version.
But please don’t be so excited as this was not the Friends reunion fans had been waiting for, but in fact they all gathered to dedicate a special segment to legendary TV director James Burrows, who Directed several episodes of Friends along with shows like Cheers, Taxi and Will & Grace. NBC, which has struggled in recent years to keep up anything resembling its former sitcom dominance, is billing the event as a much-needed return to “Must See TV.”
The sad news was that only five of the six cast members made this so-called ‘Friends’ reunion. Evidently, Matthew Perry couldn’t be pulled away from rehearsals for his playwriting debut in London to make the trip to L.A. to honor the man who helped launch his career.
“This is very exciting seeing you all together,” moderator Andy Cohen said when the Friends portion of the Burrows tribute finally began about 90 minutes into the two-hour show. Of course, the elephant in the room was the fact that they were not all together. “Everyone’s wanted a Friends reunion for so long,” Cohen continued before Matt LeBlanc cut him off, pointing out that one important cast member was missing.
