Matt LeBlanc is a pretty big jerk on Episodes, and not in the neurotic Larry David-on-Curb Your Enthusiasm-kind of way. In the Showtime comedy, LeBlanc plays himself as a lame-brained has-been — with a stinky Joey cologne line to match — but also a womanizer, bum dad, and most recently, the kind of guy who sleeps with his friend's wife without remorse.
It's a complicated if depressing alter ego to take on, and certainly one attention-grabbing way for the real-life LeBlanc to jump back into the spotlight following the 2006 failure of Joey. Executive producers David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik say that they didn't craft the part around the real LeBlanc, who in person is pleasant but serious, relaxed but not overly friendly. "Occasionally, he'll be playful, but he's not Joey," Klarik says.
Are the creators of Showtime's Episodes bitter? They don't think so!
"Fake Matt is...
It's difficult to believe that the creators of Showtime's Episodes are not holding a grudge against network TV.
Their last series, the CBS sitcom The Class, was axed after one short season, and their follow-up comedy (for cable, natch) is nothing if not an indictment of how the worst broadcast shows get made, sometimes in spite of a great idea. Just take a gander at Episodes' fictional network honcho, a crass and careless tyrant who transforms an urbane British hit about the headmaster of an elite boys school into a broad comedy for American audiences starring Matt LeBlanc.
Matt LeBlanc spent 12 years in Joey Tribbiani's shoes — first on the classic comedy Friends, then on its not-so-classic spin-off, Joey. But on January 9, the three-time Emmy nominee returns to TV in Showtime's Episodes as someone he's even more familiar with... Matt LeBlanc. Or at least a spoiled, morally bankrupt (and, ahem, very well-endowed) version of the actor, dreamed up for the biting Hollywood satire by cocreator (and former Friends producer) David Crane and his partner Jeffrey Klarik. LeBlanc, now 43 and father to 6-year-old Marina, sat down with TV Guide Magazine for a frank and funny chat about his new comedy, life away from the limelight and why he's opposed to a Friends reunion.

Do you have any scoop on Without a Trace? Anything on the big "You don't have to [raise your baby] alone anymore" comment made by Jack to Sam on the season finale? Will we be getting more "Smack"?

The other day we posted that Joey - The Complete 2nd Season (the final 22 episodes of the Friends spin-off, including 8 that NBC never aired) is coming to DVD...in Canada.The American branch had not decided to go ahead with this release, but Warner - Canada decided to move forward with it, in the full knowledge that American fans could use these discs on any standard DVD player. Anybody with an Amazon account will be able to easily import these, once Amazon's Canadian branch lists it. TVShowsOnDVD will have a link to that once it's available.The release date given on Monday was May 13th, but since then Warner - Canada has issued a date correction notice. It seems the date they gave at first was too far off, and so they've revealed that they will release it sooner than expected. The new release date is April 15th.These episodes star Matt LeBlanc (reprising his Friends role), Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos) and Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie). Time to celebrate with a really big Joey-s...
