Start surfing through the channels at any given time of the day and you should be able to land on a Friends rerun. And whether you’ve seen "The One Where No One’s Ready" one, twice, or half a dozen times, chances are you’ll probably get sucked in yet again.

We think there’s no shame in watching and re-watching an old favorite—especially when it’s one of the most beloved sitcoms of all-time. But if you’re looking to adding a new show into your DVR mix, without veering too far from the Friends family, you’re in luck! Both Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry are heading back to prime time.

LeBlanc’s return to the small screen finds him in a role that’s about as far as you can get from ladies’ man Joey Tribbiani. On Monday, Oct. 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET, the star makes his debut as Adam, a salt and pepper-haired father of three in CBS’s Man with a Plan. When his wife (Liza Snyder) goes back to work after being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years, Adam is blindsided by all of his new parenting responsibilities—and hilarity ensues. Expect some of the same goofball humor that LeBlanc brought to Friends.

Matthew Perry is also part of CBS's Monday night lineup with the second season of The Odd Couple, airing at 9:30 p.m. ET. If you missed the first season, which was a modern twist on the Tony Randall and Jack Klugman-fronted show from the '70s, jump in now to watch Perry play Oscar, a lovable slob learning to co-exist with his college pal Felix (Thomas Lennon), a neurotic neat freak. Entertaining, yes, but we bet that Chandler Bing was a much better roommate.
