    Abstract

    This dissertation will discuss the impact the 9/11 attacks had, not only on the city of New York itself, but the media and how we consumed and interpreted it at this anxious and uncertain time. Using the sitcom Friends as a case study this work will argue how and why shows such as this experienced new found success in the aftermath of the attacks on the city. This will be argued by focusing on ways in which the show interpreted the feelings and needs of the viewer post 9/11 and how the network used the show as a cathartic tool in which to capitalise on the post 9/11 mentality.
