Do you remember what you were doing in September 1994? Spending an inordinate amount of time in coffee houses, perhaps? Or were you getting some extra mileage out of your Green Day cassette?
In any case, one stereotypically '90s thing you probably weren't doing at the time was sporting "The Rachel," because at the time, not even Rachel had it. Friends debuted on Sept. 22, 1994.
But what's remarkable about that month in TV history is that it didn't just mark the beginning of Friends; it also gave pop culture other long-running shows, including ER, Chicago Hope, Party of Five and Touched by an Angel.
Twenty years later, we're looking back at when these shows premiered – back before anyone knew we'd still be watching a few weeks, let alone a few decades, down the line.

How big? Well, he claims to have written some fan fiction with himself in Ross's role.

But wait, folks, there's more: Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow showed up, too.
