10 TV Shows Like FRIENDS Every Die-hard Fan Should Watch


It has been more than a decade since FRIENDS aired on TV. The show was a trendsetter as, after that, various sitcoms were made. But very few of them could actually bring out the true essence of a situation comedy the way FRIENDS did. So let us take a look at top 10 TV Shows Like FRIENDS Every Die-hard Fan Should Watch.

The Big Bang Theory


The Big Bang Theory often abbreviated to TBBT is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro. I find it to be the best sitcom made after Friends. This show is basically about two nerds Leonard and Sheldon and an attractive girl Penny who moves into the apartment across the hall from two brilliant but socially awkward physicists and shows them the world outside of the laboratory. There are other main characters Rajesh and Howard, who are friends with Leonard and Sheldon. All of them are nerds who struggle to fit into society. Rajesh suffers from selective mutism that means he can’t talk to women. The show becomes even more interesting to watch when these nerds get girlfriends as this is totally new to them. The character of Sheldon is super weird which adds a certain charm and uniqueness to the show.
