Is The TV Show 'Joey' Any Good?

Tue Sep 14, 2004 9:27 pm

I was just reading in the paper today that the first episode of the friends spin-off Joey pulled nearly 19 million viewers. I realise that the figures were from people looking in because of friends and was wondering was it actually any good?

I caught bits of it, and NO. None of the reviews I saw had anything good to say as well.

It is yet another cookie cutter show written by a bunch of hacks that hopes to buy into the success of Friends. I don't think it will make it an entire season. If it does it will not be renewed. This is one spin-off that will not work (like they usually do).

I think they are trying and hoping to do with Joey the success that Fraiser had! Same concept, move to new city, surround by family and hope lightning strikes twice.....

I saw it and thought it was hilarious!

I thought it was the funniest TV Show I have ever seen, behind MXC.

It will be interesting to see what happens this week when "Joey" goes up against "Survivor: Vanuatu, Islands of Fire."

Considering that Joey's character on "Friends" provided the dumb humor, the "Joey" is more of the same. It's funny in the same way Joey was funny on "Friends"...but I do wonder how long it can last, since NBC has a tendency to pull shows before they even get a chance.
