This was the final episode to air on NBC for the 2005-2006 season. The remaining episodes were intended to air in the summer but NBC didn't show them. Other networks continued on with the series until it reached the final episode, Joey and the Wedding. The show had previously been on hiatus in an attempt to rework the show and increase the 8 million viewer average. After the long hiatus it returned to even worse ratings (this episode had an average of 4 million viewers), and they pulled it from the schedule again for another reworking. Instead the show was cancelled.
