TRUTH !!
In 1994, writers David Crane and Marta Kauffman shopped their show about a group of young Manhattanites, Insomnia Café, to NBC. The network liked the concept … but not the title. So Kauffman changed it to Friends Like Us. NBC loved that name, especially the word “friends” … until ABC debuted a comedy starring Ellen DeGeneres called These Friends of Mine. So the NBC show was renamed Six of One, and a pilot was filmed. After a tense few days of waiting, executive producer Kevin Bright received a call from NBC. Good news: The show had been picked up. Better news: It would air on Thursday nights in the plum time slot between hits Mad About You and Seinfeld. When the network executive asked Bright, “How about we just call the show Friends?” Bright was so elated that he replied, “You can call it Kevorkian, for all I care!”
