Spun Off From: Friends
We can understand NBC wanting to continue Friends somehow, but following Joey to Los Angeles as he pursued his acting career was misguided. Joey's lovable, womanizing and dim-witted ways worked so well on Friends because he was playing off the rest of the gang, and his moo points came in small doses. But asking him to front a show, backed by the blandness of Paulo Costanzo's Michael and aggressiveness of Drea de Matteo's Gina, was a recipe for disaster. The show earned a second season, but NBC pulled it mid-run and never aired its final eight episodes.
