We're self-diagnosed TV addicts, and we're totally okay with it. After our dreams were somewhat shattered when we heard that the Friends reunion rumor that had been swirling was untrue, we asked the editors and readers; what other TV shows would you like to see have a comeback season and/or a cast reunion?

Here's what we're thinking; Amanda Bynes needs to get back on our TV screens (uh, "The Girls Room" in 2013, come on...amazing!), Mila and Ashton can take their off-screen romance back on-screen and forming bands on TV never really went out of style. Reminisce along with our pics below in our full gallery!

Have any shows that you're dying to see back on TV? Which of our picks do you agree or disagree with? Tweet us @OKMagazine or drop us a line in the comments below!

1. 'The Amanda Show'

To this day, we're quite sure there was no tweenager who could make us laugh quite like Amanda Bynes did. We vote she turns 'The Amanda Show' we all know and love into a present day comedy-sketch show. Judge Trudy takes on Lindsay Lohan...bring in the dancin' lobstas!

The show had a wonderful series reunion of Lorelai and Luke finally getting back together and Rory setting off into the world (to follow Obama's campaign trail! In 2007!), but I wonder how they're actually doing. Have L&L had a baby? Is April in the picture? Rory would be about 28 now…how is her career going? Is she besties with Obama? I gotta know!"

3. 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here'

The concept of this show is just sheer brilliance. We can think of so many celebs nowadays that we'd love to see tossed on an island together. Just seeing Speidi rough it out on TV, come on, that's quality television right there!

4. 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'

I basically just want to see Will Smith rock those hammer pants again and find out if Hilary is still a spoiled brat, but I also know that if this comeback season happened, obviously Will's kids Jaden and Willow would have walk-on roles. And maybe their BFF, Justin Bieber, would get one too..."

7. 'That 70's Show'

Now that Mila and Ashton have become official off-screen, maybe our dreams of Kelso and Jackie being together can finally come true?!

8. 'Sex and The City'

This one kind of speaks for itself. Although we're doubtful this will ever happen, we're holding out hope that SJP will bring Carrie Bradshaw back to us...and not as the 80's version on 'The Carrie Diaries'.

9. 'Perfect Couples'

10. 'Sabrina The Teenage Witch'

Fine, maybe Melissa Joan Hart is kinda busy with 'Melissa and Joey,' but we just need to see how Sabrina and Harvey are doing! Do they have kids? Are their kids witches? Is Salem still a cat?! So many questions!

11. 'Making The Band'

If One Direction can be formed on TV, any band can. We just miss the days of all the drama that went along with it like in MTV's 'Making The Band'. PS, we may or may not still listen to Danity Kane...

12. 'Harry's Law'

It might have ended a short time ago but that doesn't make us miss 'Harry's Law' any less! And reader @AuggiesGirl concurs.

13. 'The Lying Game'

ABC Family rarely disappoints with their high school drama-fueled series. reader @C_Cove tells us she misses 'The Lying Game' most because it "was suspenseful, full of talent, had 1 girl be twins, it was just as good as @ABCFpll. 'Pretty Little Liars'". Granted we don't know if the show is cancelled or not yet, but if it is, @C_Cove (and us!) sure will miss it!
