I could never warm to Friends; I may be one of the few on this planet. The only character I liked was Rachel, merely because I found Jennifer to be cute and (occasionally) funny. Feelings about the other characters ranged from disinterest to dislike.
In contrast, I enjoy watching How I Met Your Mother. I am probably not in the target group that producers and the network hope to reach (besides, I record the program and fast-forward through the ads), but I am entertained. It is well-written and humorous. I particularly like that they include a Canadian, who is always an easy target.
