Have you ever noticed what’s on the computer screens at Dunder-Mifflin? It’s serious business. Spider Solitaire rules the monitor in Creed’s office, and Meredith regularly plays Klondike. The cast was just as productive between takes. The computers on set had Internet access, so the actors killed time by browsing the web, checking email, and paying bills.

The show’s beloved line-up of characters wasn’t cast as intended. Lisa Kudrow scored the role of Phoebe only after Ellen DeGeneres turned it down. Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) was originally cast as Chandler, and Courteney Cox insisted on playing Monica after being cast as Rachel. And the epic love match between Ross and Rachel? It was actually written for Monica and Joey.
The Big Bang Theory
Like Friends, episodes of The Big Bang Theory have predictable titles. Each one (excluding the pilot) is named in the format of a scientific theory – “The Hamburger Postulate,” “The Luminous Fish Effect,” “The Pants Alternative.” Because a lot of the dialogue is rooted in science, the show relies on a science consultant for guidance. No, it’s not cast member Mayim Bialik, who holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Scientific accuracy is up to David Saltzberg, a Ph.D. in physics.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
If you watched the show since its 2005 premiere, then you’re one of the few. The first season brought low ratings, which led to A-list actor Danny DeVito joining the cast. In 2014, the sitcom became the longest running live-action comedy series. It was such a hit that even Russia created a version. The Gang in It’s Always Sunny in Moscow runs a pub named Philadelphia.
How I Met Your Mother
There’s more than one secret in this sitcom. Josh Raynor, who plays Ted, is not the voice of narrator Ted. That was Full House alum, Bob Saget. Another lesser-known fact is the series filmed in Los Angeles at a studio lot, not in New York City. The real zinger? The show’s co-creator credits Britney Spears, who guest starred as a receptionist, for attracting new viewers and saving the sitcom.
