They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

Unfortunately for Friends fans, co-creator Marta Kauffman said we won't be seeing a reboot of the beloved NBC sitcom anytime soon!
Speaking at Sunday's Television Critics' Association press tour, the showrunner admitted she found the series' long lived popularity "shocking."
The 59-year-old is also too busy with her current Netflix series Grace and Frankie to revisit her past success, telling Us Weekly:
Could this BE any lamer??
Remember how all of your '90s dreams were realized on Wednesday when it was reported that Friends would be having a televised reunion after nearly 12 years off the air?
Yeah… turns out it's not really happening after all.
Apparently, while all six cast members were wanted for NBC's upcoming two-hour tribute to director James Burrows, it looks like they'll have to settle for just five of them — so far!
That's because Matthew Perry unfortunately has a conflict with the February 21 special seeing as he's currently in London rehearsing for his play The End of Longing, which goes up February 2.
It was already announced that there was no guarantee Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Matthew would even tape anything together… and now it looks like it definitely won't be happening.
Still, we'd gladly take a Chandler-less reunion — it's better than nothing!

Why, you may ask?! Well it's because the A-listers keep it sweet and simple.
In a recent interview, the Leftovers actor opened up about his relationship with the Friends alum — revealing that he's constantly telling her "she's beautiful."
"Not to be corny, but it's true. So I constantly say that."
Awww! LOVES it.
On Sunday, the twosome were spotted out having a quiet dinner at Leona in Venice, CA.
An insider noted:
The Rachel haircut has never looked better!
For Tuesday's brand new episode of Making a Scene, James and his crew were tasked with making a "Very Special Episode" of Friends.
So naturally they went with an intervention for Ross' pet monkey Marcel. LOLz!!!
Not only is the humor on brand with the NBC sitcom, but James' portrayals of both Jennifer Aniston AND Matt Leblanc are pretty enlightening.
Ch-ch-check out James Franco, James Franco, & a monkey making a scene together (below)!!!
This is brand new information!
You may be part of the majority of society that remembers Friends as one of the funniest sitcoms of all time.
But you'd be wrong…
A new fan-made supercut of the classic sitcom proves that Monica, Rachel, Ross, Joey, Chandler, and Phoebe were much more frightening than we remember them!
WorldWide Interweb decided to take memorable scenes from the series, alter them to black and white, and then make Ross and Chandler out to be serial killers. Casual.
It's Dead Friends like you've never seen them before!
Ch-ch-check out the scariest version of Friends ever (below)!!!
Ben Affleck made his daughters' dreams come true! It's been reported that the Batman v Superman star took his two daughters to Taylor Swift's concert on Wednesday night in El Lay!
Violet Affleck and Seraphina Affleck, both reportedly big Swifties, not only attended the concert at the Staples Center, but they got to meet Taylor backstage!
It's unknown if Affleck was invited to go on stage as well, but we're sure such a very public appearance isn't something he wants to do in the midst of his messy breakup with Jennifer Garner.
However, some of the Style singer's celeb concert cameos have been spontaneously arranged from the same type of pre-concert meet and greets — Julia Roberts was reportedly invited on stage after she brought her daughters backstage to meet the singer!

What do you think about that El Lay?!
Taylor Swift certainly went out with a star-studded bang for her final night at the Staples Center.
We all knew the blonde beauty's final night in El Lay would be EPIC, we just didn't know it would be THIS epic.
The Wizards of Waverly Place alum was the first of the celebrity guests to join T.Swizzle on stage. The Style performer even dubbed Selly's song Good For You the song of the summer.
Score! We're not shocked these two totally SLAYED this single (below) together.
