CHICAGO, October 31, 2019 – Chicago’s Very Own WGN-TV is airing a special “Saturday Night with Friends” mini-marathon – “The Ones Morgan Loves,” featuring WGN Morning News meteorologist Morgan Kolkmeyer’s six favorite episodes of “Friends.” The three-hour presentation filled with Morgan’s favorite moments starts at 6pm on Saturday, November 16.
Morgan will watch the episodes along with fans at home and offer her own commentary before and after each episode on the air. “I grew up watching Friends as a kid and revisited watching it as an adult. It’s nostalgic for me! It’s definitely a funnier watch now that I am older and can relate to so much of it,” commented Morgan. “I’m excited to share the ones I have chosen and maybe compare them to some other Friends-fan favorites’ out there.”
The six episodes to air will be Season 1’s “The One with the East German Laundry Detergent,” Season 2’s “The One with the Prom Video,” Season 3’s “The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break,” Season 4’s ‘The One with the Embryos,” Season 5’s ‘The One Where Everybody Finds Out,” and Season 10’s “The One with Phoebe’s Wedding.”
