Channel 4 at 30: Friends
The lives and loves of six 20-somethings in New York becomes the biggest sitcom in the world. In its earlier days, Channel 4 had a knack for discovering the best US shows; millions tuned into early successes like Cheers, Roseanne, The Golden Girls, The Cosby Show, Family Ties and Hill Street Blues (although the latter aired first on ITV).
However, Channel 4's reputation as the home for the best US programmes was consolidated by the acquisition of Friends and ER in the mid-1990s (funnily enough, seasons 4-6 of both shows aired first on Sky). Frasier, NYPD Blue, Homicide: Life on the Street and Thirtysomething were all fine additions to the portfolio.
Sex and the City, The Sopranos, The West Wing, Will and Grace and Six Feet Under built on the tradition. Let's not forget Desperate Housewives and, of course, Homeland.
