How You Doin'?

Before Facebook friends, we had NBC's "Friends," the hugely successful TV show starring Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. During the sitcom's last season, in 2004, coincidentally the same year Facebook was founded, NBC was to pay $7 million per episode, according to the New York Times.

With $104 billion, the network could pay for more than 12,000 new episodes today, or more than 500 seasons. That's a lot more of Rachel and Monica, as well as the Ugly Naked Guy.
