As the Fall Season Begins, Will 4 Remain TV's Magic Number?

As the official 2014-2015 TV season kicks off on Monday, Sept. 22, we're about to find out whether TV's unofficial "Rule of 4" will strike again.

What's the "Rule of 4"? Quite simply, in the past few decades, years that ended in "4" have turned out to be game-changing seasons in network TV. In 1984, The Cosby Show premiered and immediately revived a moribund NBC, as well as the entire sitcom genre.

By 1994, NBC was struggling once again — until Friends and ER came along and made the Peacock Network an unstoppable force for the rest of the decade. By 2004, it was ABC on the ropes, until Lost and Desperate Housewives debuted and turned that network around.

Pilot Inspector: Befriending Friends Again, 20 Years Later

On Sept. 22, 1994, Friends premiered on NBC, and haircuts, coffeehouses, lobsters, trivia games, pivoting, Thanksgiving, pickup lines and break(-up) lines were never the same again. The sitcom phenom's cultural impact endures and its popularity remains unrivaled, but could we have foreseen all that by the time Chandler (Matthew Perry) shared his Liza Minnelli dream?

In honor of the series' 20th anniversary, Joyce Eng and Sadie Gennis decided to break out the pilot and look back at the one where it all began.

VIDEO: Friends Turns 20! The One Where Gunther Looks Back and Plays Trivia

Central Perk may not be Gunther's last name, but the two unquestionably go hand-in-hand.

So naturally, that's where we found James Michael Tyler, who played the surly, deadpan, Rachel-obsessed barista with "hair brighter than the sun" on Friends for all of its 10-year run. In honor of the series' 20th anniversary on Monday, Central Perk is real and — not to mix our must Must-See TV sitcoms — spectacular. Located at 199 Lafayette Street in New York City and open through Oct. 18, the pop-up coffeehouse is a must-stop shop for all Friends fanatics. The iconic orange couch is there for photo ops, there are tons of memorabilia, props (including Pat the Dog), souvenirs and free cups of coffee (courtesy of Eight O'Clock Coffee). Gunther himself will make surprise visits.

Premise: A classic sitcom that reflected the lives of six twentysomething friends: three men and three women, living in New York. Sometimes touching and often hilarious, it addressed universal themes like falling in---or out of---love, finding a job and dealing with (as well as becoming) parents, and inspired numerous friends-themed knockoffs, none of which conveyed the warmth and humor of the original. A spin-off, `Joey,' featuring Matt LeBlanc's character, was slated to debut in the fall of 2004.
