WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE...

Let's play a little game called "What show am I referring to?" Sounds like fun, right? Alright, here we go: In a 10-year-old internal NBC research report obtained by The Smoking Gun, Peacock execs trashed one of their sitcoms as "not very entertaining, clever or original," dissed the show's stars and noted that test audiences "found the characters smug, superficial and self-absorbed." So, what show am I referring to? "Suddenly Susan?" Nope. "Veronica's Closet?" Try again. "Caroline in the City?" You're getting closer. "No... it couldn't be... Friends???" Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Wasn't that fun?!
