* CreatorBacklash: Kevin S. Bright's feelings are highlighted nicely in the page quote. He was reportedly not terribly upset when the series was canceled.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Joey's assistant in Season 1 is [[TwoGuysAndAGirl Pete]].
** Joey's sister is [[TheSopranos Adriana La Cerva]] and his nephew is [[RoyalPains Evan R. Lawson]].
** Michael's friend is [[TheBigBangTheory Howard Wolowitz]], whose fake girlfriend is [[{{Glee}} Emma Pillsbury]].
* [[IAmNotSpock I Am Not Data]]: Lampshaded in one episode with Brent Spiner.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Season 2 specifically. Odds are you can still find a Region 1 DVD set, but it's noticeably costlier than the more readily available Season 1.
* MissingEpisode: Eight episodes from season 2 were unaired due to the show being prematurely canceled, though they are available on DVD.
* NoExportForYou: Season 1's DVD set was released pretty much everywhere the show was aired. The DVD set for Season 2 was only ever released in Canada, while they will play on most Region 1 DVD players, they're long out of print, not to mention very pricey.
* TheOtherDarrin: Gina was originally played by a different actress on a 1997 episode of ''Friends''.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: NBC made the boneheaded decision to put Joey opposite ''Series/AmericanIdol'' and predictably its ratings soon declined--to the point that the show then got canceled midway through season 2, leaving eight episodes unaired.
** Added bonus. As the trope header says, Kevin Bright had none to kind an opinion of NBC reconstructing the Joey character, coming out and blaming them for the show's failure on more than one occasion.
