Friends is Still the Most Watched TV Show

It's been six years since the hit TV show wrapped up, but Friends is still the most watched TV show of the decade.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show's 2004 finale is the highest-rated broadcast in America since 2000. 52.5 million viewers tuned in to watch Rachel, Monica, Joey, Chandler, Phoebe and Ross say goodbye.

The series, which launched the careers of Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, ran for a decade between 1994 and 2004.

Friends took the cake but Survivor came in at a close second with 51.7 million viewers. Believe it or not Joe Millionaire was third with its 2003 show getting an audience of 40 million.

E.R., American Idol, Grey's Anatomy, Frasier and Spin City also made the top ten list. What was your favorite Friends episode?
