Joey is a spin off show; off of the highly successful TV show FRIENDS. I began to watch Joey, as I liked the character when he was on Friends, and thought that this show would be similar. Unfortunately I was wrong. This show is not half as good as Friends was. The only thing even similar to it is that Joey in this show.
Apart from that there is nothing similar. Granted this show only lasted 2 seasons, and it is easy to see why. Lots of Friends fans tuned in to this show, hoping to replace Friends with this show, but sadly that did not happen. Overall an ok show to watch, but if you loved Friends, just keep watching their re-runs instead.
