Having read that this will 'most likely' be Joey's last season, I'm not going to bash it at all. (Not that I usually do, or that I had even planned to.) But apparently just airing the show would be cheaper than cancelling it.
Anyways, it was fun to see Joey at his old ways. Trying to recover from an ex coming back into his life. This time she's come with a threat with a sex tape in which he tells her he loves her, and wants to marry just to get in bed with her. And then, he ditches her.
So, in order to please her so she won't release this possibly career ruining tape, he goes on the Ellen show to apologize. Only Ellen wants details, and the audience enjoy the story step-by-step that the story becomes a bunch of punch lines. I mean sure he ends up hooking up with her later, but that's not the moral of the story.
Of course, I care not of the morals, just the quality entertainment.
