For reasons that don't make an awful lot of sense, many people remain concerned about the fate of "Friends"cast members who are not Jennifer Aniston. We applaud the comedic elasticity of Lisa Kudrow, pulled for Courteney Cox to overcome the initial premise of "Cougar Town," cheer when Matt LeBlanc parodies himself on"Episodes" and wonder whatever happened to David Schwimmer. This fond, familial (and most certainly nonreciprocal) fretting reaches its zenith around Matthew Perry, who played the admittedly endearing Chandler Bing.

Matthew Perry hasn't fully sat down before he lays out the ground rules. "Don't be mean," he said before settling into a mid-morning interview at a hotel bar (he drank Red Bull) in Beverly Hills. "Sometimes people are mean. " By "people," he's referring to the media. And there's only a touch of sarcasm that coats his tone. The 43-year-old actor, best known for his wily performance as Chandler Bing on NBC's long-running sitcom "Friends," has grown accustomed to scrutiny. Sure, that includes his personal travails with addiction but also the blessing and curse of the extraordinary success of "Friends.

NBC's new "Hollywood Game Night" had me at Jane Lynch. At this point it's easier to name the projects she hasn't starred or guest-starred on ("Game of Thrones"? "The Real Housewives of Orange County"?), but as far as I know, she's never done a game show. And that just seems wrong. Trained in improv, which is the closest anyone gets to live television these days, Lynch could have absolutely held her own against Paul Lynde and Carol Burnett in the halcyon days of the original "Hollywood Squares" and "Password.

Courteney Cox cast her vote for no "Friends" reunion in a sit-down Monday night with David Letterman.  So that makes it pretty much, oh, everyone in the cast of the classic sitcom who has come down on the "no freakin' way" side of the reunion argument in recent years. Maybe it's time to stop asking the question, people? At least Cox, who's reportedly now living with  musician boyfriend Johnny McDaid, pulled out a cute example of why "it's not gonna happen": It was the one with the dinner party.  "Let me tell you something: There's six friends and I've been trying to put together a cast dinner for 10 years.
