Joey is an American sitcom and a spin-off of Friends starring Matt LeBlanc reprising his role as Joey Tribbiani. 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 canceled the series due to poor ratings in May 2006 and did not broadcast the remaining episodes.

The Big Break - Legacy - Netflix

After the series' cancellation in 2006, Matt LeBlanc took a four-year break from acting before returning in the BBC/Showtime sitcom Episodes. The series was a success for LeBlanc, earning him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in 2012. On the show he plays a fictionalized version of himself. Joey is brought up several times in conversation by characters on the show, including LeBlanc, who praises the show but also laughs at his own real life career in the show, most notably with the line, “They said Joey was going to be a success,” to which another character replies “Joey was ...a, success.”
