Friends, ER, Party of Five and More: How September 1994 Changed TV

Originally posted 09/12/2014 07:00AM

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.

Former Party of Five Star's Drug Battle: 'I Didn't Care if I Died'

The Party is over for Jeremy London, who is opening up to PEOPLE about the prescription pill addiction that jeopardized his career and his family.

The actor, who moved to Los Angeles in 1993 along with his identical twin brother Jason, says that his rise to fame – he played Griffin Holbrook on the hit series Party of Five and Chandler Hampton on 7th Heaven – lead to a dangerous tendency to abuse drugs.

"I was treated like royalty," says London, 37. "It was hard for my brain to accept."

London wed actress Melissa Cunningham in September 2006, and the couple welcomed their son Lyrik, now 3, soon thereafter. But he says that prescription pill abuse contributed to the demise of his marriage and career – and jeopardized his relationship with his son.

"There were times I didn't care if I died," he says. "I felt like I was losing everything."
