Nickelodeon’s Nick at Nite is honoring the late Matthew Perry with a special tribute titled Matthew Perry: Thanks for Being a Friend. The 30-minute program is scheduled to air Sunday (Nov. 5) at 10 p.m. ET/PT and will be followed by “fan favorite” episodes of Friends with Perry as his hilariously sarcastic character Chandler Bing.
Viewers will have the opportunity to watch never-before-seen interviews with Perry as well as behind-the-scenes footage from his time on Friends. The channel will also be running reruns of the hit sitcom leading up to the tribute special so you can revisit some of your favorite moments from the series.
You can tune into the live special through your cable provider — just go to the Nickelodeon channel, which you can find through your TV provider’s guide.
