RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

So, those are the fabulous soirees of fiction, but what about those lower-brow shindigs - the parties on our favorite TV shows that we'd love to crash? There is, of course, Elaine's epic dance fail at her office party on "Seinfeld."

(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW)

MARTIN: And if you're talking office parties, you have to put "Mad Men" on the list. You think they drank a lot Sterling Cooper Draper and Price on a regular Tuesday night? The holiday parties are the definition of debauchery.

(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW)

MARTIN: And for some more wholesome fun, there's always a family dinner party at the Huxtables, where at any moment, a spontaneous, soul filled lip sync performance could break out because the Cosbys are just that great.

(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW)

MARTIN: And this is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
