8 Times Matt LeBlanc Was Basically Joey on Man with a Plan

We had a serious case of deja vu

Matt LeBlanc returned to network TV Monday with his new CBS sitcom Man with a Plan, and it was exactly like seeing an old friend again. That's not just a requisite Friends pun; it really did feel like Joey Tribbiani just moved out of Chandler and Monica's apartment (we're gonna pretend Joey didn't happen), got married, had three kids and headed to Pittsburgh (though he would never forsake his beloved Giants and Jets). Short of uttering "How you doin'?" LeBlanc's Adam Burns was like an older, grayer, more responsible -- but still not that bright -- Joey. Here are eight times we had a serious case of deja vu.

1. Adam Burns' namesake is obviously Ken Adams.
