Joey is an Americansitcom, which starred Matt LeBlanc reprising his role as Joey Tribbiani from the popular sitcom Friends. It premiered on the NBC television network, on September 9, 2004, in the former time slot of its parent series, Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. Midway through the second season, the show was placed on a hiatus by NBC but returned on March 7, 2006 in a new timeslot of Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. One episode, "Joey and the Snowball Fight", was shown on a Tuesday at 8:30 p.m, but was pulled by NBC when it was overshadowed in ratings by American Idol. NBC cancelled the series in May 2006 and did not air the remaining episodes.
Repeats are currently aired in the United Kingdom on Five.

Main characters

  • Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani, who moves to Los Angeles from New York, to proceed with his acting career. He is constantly talking about food or eating sandwiches.
  • Paulo Costanzo as Joey's nephew Michael Tribbiani who idolizes his Uncle Joey's ability to date many women, and who himself is sheltered and nervous around girls. He is self-conscious that he has been so sheltered and that his mother Gina breast fed him until he was seven. He is a huge Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Wars fan. He is extremely intelligent, an aerospace engineer, attends Caltech and specializes in applied thermodynamics, works with his rival Seth frequently on engineering projects, and is an obvious direct opposite from his more street-wise mother and uncle. Turns to Joey as a big brother and substitute father figure, even after his biological father Jimmy has re-entered mother Gina's love life Joey soon spits out to Jimmy that he is Michael's father. He plays a smaller role in the second season.
  • Drea de Matteo as Joey's attractive older sister Gina Tribbiani, who is temperamental and promiscuous. Not particularly bright but very street-wise, Gina is a caring but over-protective and domineering mother. For years she convinced her genius son Michael that he was born when she was 22, instead of 15 and always says he is the one thing she has done really well. She and Joey are friends in addition to being siblings, both having the gift of being extremely appealing to the opposite sex, with numerous lovers. Initially working as a hair dresser, by season two she works as a secretary for Joey's agent Bobbie, having impressed Bobbie with her brash manner. In season two she starts dating Michael's father Jimmy once again and marries him.
  • Andrea Anders as Alexis "Alex" Garrett, the next door neighbour, landlord and friend. She is an educated, but slightly ditsy blonde lawyer who graduated from Pepperdine University. Initially intimidated, but also intrigued by Joey's tough street-wise older sister Gina, the two women eventually become friends, and she becomes more bold in the way she dresses and acts, thanks to Gina's influence. She is puzzled but impressed by Joey's gift at being able to know when she is wearing thong panties, and spends most of her time hanging out at Joey and Michael's apartment. She and Joey bond and become close friends, and she confides in him her problems with her marriage. Her husband is a professional orchestra musician and is away from home most of the time. By the end of season one, she and Joey become romantically involved during her separation from her husband. In season two she becomes romantically interested in Joey and has a crush on him for a long while and Gina tries to help her to get over him, once she starts dating Joey's friend Dean, Joey soon realizes that he is also in love with Alex.
  • Jennifer Coolidge as Joey's oversexed agent Roberta "Bobbie" Morganstern, and reportedly the 12th most powerful woman in Hollywood. She has an enormous crush on Joey's nephew Michael. She often entertains herself by making her office assistant do funny tricks, or shocking herself with a stun-gun. She is brash, forward, aggressive, highly entertaining and slightly ditsy, laughing at everything and at anyone's expense, including her client Joey's. She was once sued by Phil Collins.
  • Miguel A. Núñez Jr. joined the cast at the start of season two as the character Zach Miller. He soon became one of Joey's best friends. Zach has an interesting career, going from playing extras on TV, to directing amateur plays. Zach does not appear to have a home; he was seen at one time living in Joey's trailer, while he was working on a major blockbuster movie. In one episode, Zach and Joey, both drunk, married in Tijuana, possibly a parody of Ross and Rachel marrying each other in the season five finale of Friends. Possibly as a tribute to Joey and Chandler, Joey and Zach argued like a married couple, Zach playing the part of the wife. Zach's final appearance was in "Joey and the Big Move". Núñez was absent from the last five episodes, including the finale of the series, due to having found another job. Zach's absence within the show was not mentioned, nor was the character at all.

Two cast members had previously appeared as different characters in Friends; Coolidge appeared as Amanda, an old friend of Monica and Phoebe, in a tenth season episode. Adam Goldberg appeared in Friends' second season in the recurring role of Eddie, who moves in with Chandler after Joey moves out. Additionally, Robert Costanzo reprised his role as Joey's father in "Joey and the Dad", a character originated in the first season of Friends. Costanzo was the only actor besides LeBlanc to play the same character in this series as in Friends (Gina appeared in a third season episode of Friends, but was not played by Drea de Matteo).

[edit] Development


The pilot episode was released in screener for test audiences and members of the entertainment industry to preview the show and drum up business. The screener was subsequently leaked on the Internet and thus has received a much wider critical review process than initially conceived.[1] There were few differences between the unaired pilot and the version that was aired. Ashley Scott played the role of Allison in the unaired pilot[2], she was replaced by Andrea Anders and the character name changed to Alex.
Despite middling ratings in its first season (2004-2005), especially when compared to Friends, the sitcom was renewed for a second season (2005-2006). This was in part because Matt LeBlanc's contract with the network specified he would be paid for two seasons worth of episodes for the show, whether they were made or not. During its second season, ratings fell 82%. In the second season, Joey became a bigger star. Miguel A. Núñez Jr. was also added to the show as a series regular. He played Joey's best friend. Also, Jennifer Coolidge had a more prominent role.
The show was pulled from its Thursday-night timeslot in December 2005, and NBC returned the show in a new timeslot (Tuesdays at 8pm) on March 7, 2006. Now in competition with American Idol, the ratings were even lower; Joey was the lowest rated prime time program of the week for NBC [1]. The network pulled the series after the first Tuesday airing and its cancellation was announced on May 15, 2006. The remaining episodes have never been aired by NBC, but have been shown on various other networks around the world.
The fifth and the thirteenth episodes were directed by David Schwimmer (who played Ross Geller on Friends and also directed some Friends episodes).
