Joey costar jumps ship to CBS comedy

Joey costar Andrea Anders is not waiting for the axe to fall on the NBC sitcom, which is on hiatus and not expected to return for a third season.

Instead, she has joined the cast of CBS' comedy series The Class.

The action begins with a party thrown by 27-year-old Ethan (Jason Ritter) for his girlfriend, whom he met in the third grade. Ethan invites six other people who were in the class with them, all of whom have lost touch with one another. The party then becomes the springboard for following how the lives of the reunited characters continue to intersect.

Anders and Jay Bernthal will play two of the schoolmates, who were high school sweethearts. Also cast is Heather Goldenhersh (Kinsey).

In Joey, Anders plays the sweet neighbor of the Matt LeBlanc's title character.

Joey has been better in season 2, but still doesn't try to stretch itself much. Anders has been consistantly funny in it, and I'm so glad they expanded Jennifer Coolidge's character as well. If they keep trying to make it better, I hope they renew it. Joey is a better show than Earl and The Office. Not only are those 2 shows hyped up way too much (I'm sick of people telling me what's Must see, especially when it isn't). Carrell isn't that funny. He truly is a brick.

I can't believe all of you. Joey is not that bad of a show. In fact, I think that the last episode was probably as good as one of the greatest friends episodes.
I think it is really sad seeing how people are ready to sink Joey after having watched Friends for 10 years.
GIVE THEM A CHANCE

Smart move on her part. And I can't believe that Joey lasted more than one episode in the first season.

cash_sf: She didn't leave Joey. Joey is over. She has probably finished filming the rest of season 2 episode of Joey and she is now moving on.

Why would she stick with Joey when there is not Joey?
