U.K.'s Channel 4 Drops Friends

Why do we feel like Angelina had something to do with this?

After 15 years of airing reruns of Friends, U.K.'s Channel 4 announced today that it will not renew its licensing deal for the show beyond 2011. Though the show has been a massive hit in England, still drawing almost 400,000 viewers per night, the channel said they are hoping to free up airtime for “more contemporary youth-oriented fare.”
