“Grey’s Anatomy,” still running after 20 seasons, reunited the show’s stars Ellen Pompeo, James Pickens Jr., Chandra Wilson Katherine Heigl and Justin Chambers.

“There have been some changes over the years, but the one thing that has remained a constant is the incredible fan base,” Heigl remarked.

On a set replicating the sitcom’s central living room, “Martin” stars Martin Lawrence, Carl Anthony Payne II, Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold joked about how their beloved series, which ran from 1992 and 1997, was never recognized with an Emmy.
