EMPTY CHAIRS AT EMPTY TABLES: With "Friends" and "Frasier" closing up shop, the Chicago Tribune's Maureen Ryan pauses today to ponder whether the couch at Central Perk or Martin's battered old chair deserve a spot in the TV Furniture Hall of Fame (reg. req.). [Note: The online version repeats No. 2, Lucy and Ricky's twins beds, while omitting Archie Bunker's chair.] Overall, the ten inductees on the list are pretty solid (neither aforementioned item made the cut), but I would replace the Kramdens' kitchen table and the sofa sleeper JJ and Michael shared on "Good Times," with the Simpsons' couch and Norm's bar stool on "Cheers."
