NBC is going all the way with Joey. The network has ordered an additional nine episodes of Matt LeBlanc's Friends spin-off, making it the first new sitcom to receive a full-season order. (As reported Thursday, WB's Jack & Bobby was the first drama to get a full-season pickup.) Joey has averaged 16.4 million viewers over three episodes, finishing a strong No. 2 to CBS's Survivor.
