''Joey'' was a SpinOff of the wildly popular sitcom ''Series/{{Friends}}''. It transplanted wannabe actor Joey Tribbiani (Creator/MattLeBlanc) to Los Angeles, where he tried to make a go of becoming a big star. It added new characters such as Gina, his equally promiscuous sister, played by Creator/DreaDeMatteo of ''Series/TheSopranos''; Michael, his sheltered nephew, played by Creator/PauloCostanzo, and love interest Alex, played by Creator/AndreaAnders. Plots usually revolved around one of three things:

Some people were apprehensive about this spin-off as they were unsure of whether Joey would be able to stand on his own as a character and support his own show. The first episode drew in fairly impressive ratings (18 million viewers) and the show was succesful enough to get a second season. Though in the second season Creator/{{NBC}} [[ScrewedByTheNetwork put it up against]] ''Series/AmericanIdol'' among other things, causing its ratings to drop which was the final nail in the coffin. In the middle of the second season, ''Joey'' was no more, at least in the US, the remaining episodes did air overseas and were eventually released on DVD... in Canada. A total of 46 episodes were released, from September, 2004 to May, 2006.

* DawsonCasting[=/=]PlayingGertrude: Drea De Matteo is only six years older than the actor who plays her son.
** An in-universe example of DawsonCasting, that also doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny: Joey's flirts with an actress in her mid 20s at an audition, then finds out that she has been cast as the ''teenage daughter'' of the character he is auditioning for. While reading a scene with her, the two of them put in huge amounts of DoubleEntendre into all their lines, and finally end up making out. The casting director simply tells Joey "Never have a daughter!"
* DoubleStandard: Joey's middle-aged agent Bobbi, who frequently hit on Joey's 21-year-old nephew Michael. This was PlayedForLaughs until the end of season one, where she told Joey she could get Michael and a friend tickets to ''RevengeOfTheSith'', but used it to trick Michael into a date with her. Gina was ''pissed''.
