By Josef Adalian and Michael Fleming 

HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - Now that NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker has closed the door on an 11th season of 'Friends,' the path is clear for talks to begin about a possible Matt LeBlanc-led spinoff of the smash series. Last fall, network executives quietly approached 'Friends' producer Warner Bros. TV and reps for LeBlanc about the possibility of the actor starring in a spinoff focusing on his character, Joey Tribbiani...

No, I don't think Joey is that interesting of a character.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/22/03 - 11:58:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
Me either, he's probably my least favorite character on the show
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/22/03 - 12:00:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
let me think no.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/22/03 - 12:01:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Aw, come on. "Bing!" could be an infinately superior spin off, and would neccesitate Monica dying at some point before Freind's end. But Joey doesn't have that many storylines in him.Chandler's more multidimentional.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/22/03 - 12:45:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
I like Joey's sincerity and simplicity. I don't need more tv in my life, though.
19 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/22/03 - 12:51:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I dunno. He's kind of a one-joke guy to me. Then again, I really don't like friends.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/10/03 - 9:30:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I love Joey, but I wouldn't watch a whole show about him. The supporting characters would have to be very good.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/19/03 - 5:04:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think that Phoebe should be a show. Or Ross. Or Phoebe and Ross. It could be called Phoebe and Ross.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 2/21/03 - 5:41:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
woo hoo, joey all the way. altough, you know its gotta suck without the rest of em!
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/13/03 - 4:10:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
Friends has gone way downhill the last couple of years, so I imagine a spinoff would be horrible.
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/13/03 - 4:13:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
Please no. Let it die!
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/13/03 - 5:04:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes he's one of the best characters.
19 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/13/03 - 5:09:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
His character has no depth and all the jokes are really unsubtle; I can't see a spin-off working at all.
19 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/9/03 - 9:53:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 1:06:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I will loyaly watch it because I am a diehard friends fan. Im gonna support ANYTHING those actors deside to do.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 1:23:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm hesitant. Hopefully, it can sustain itself like Frasier did, with a new set of characters and a complete metamorphosis from one sitcom to another. If it hopes ot be successful, it needs to establish it's own audience and characters and setting and style, rather than just carry it over from the Friends audience.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 1:24:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no, "Friends" is so overrated! Not to mention watching just Joey, I think I'd die of boredom. I agree w/ domo and kyry..IT'S TIME FOR "FRIENDS" TO GROW UP AND MOVE ON!
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 1:29:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Friends is not overrated.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 1:45:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't like Joey that much I would like to see Ross and Racheal get thier own show. I will watch Joey's show but it won't be as good as the originial show
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 1:48:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
A good spin off would be Joey and Chandler as roommates again. But the cant do that because Chandler and Monica are married.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 3:14:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have loved "Friends," but for the past season, I have loved having the tv off from 8-8:30 on Thursday nights more. In fact, I don't watch anything regularly anymore.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 3:41:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I love Friends, but I'm not sure a Joey spin off would be that good. Joey's the stupid but good looking, comical character. I just cant see a whole show about him.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 3:47:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
The great thing about friends, is it's not about one person in particular, like a few other sitcoms out there. It's about a few different people. But for one show to be totally based one just one of thsoe people, I don't think it'd be all that great.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 7/26/03 - 3:53:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
The story I read about the spin-off cited polls or something that claimed Joey has evolved into a fan fave. Lat I noticed, he had developed that sweet, sensitive, wanting to be Rachel's baby's father figure.
