Joey was a good character on friends where he wasn't the main focus, but on his own he seems to shallow and the jokes to predictable.

 "Joey" (2004)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In either case, though, Joey was just 1/6th of the equation, and the character was only asked to carry 6-10 minutes of any given episode, at the most.
Here, they're trying to make Joey carry the entire 24 minutes because, as it stands now, the supporting characters aren't compelling enough to warrant strong independent story lines of their own.
Personally, I'd love to see an episode where the supporting cast gets together to plan a surprise birthday party for Joey, with everybody having their own ideas of what to do, but ultimately we find out that none of them really knows Joey as well as they think they do.

 Back at Emerson, 'Friends' producer Bright teaches the art of the sitcom - The Boston Globe
Sitcom producer Kevin Bright looks at a monitor during rehersal for a show for the Emerson Channel.
But rather than go on about his share of the blame — his ‘‘Friends’’; spinoff ‘‘Joey’’ was cancelled eight months ago — Bright prefers to fix things by instructing a new generation of sitcom makers in the art of what’s funny.
This time last year he was under intense pressure to turn around ratings for ‘‘Joey,’’ the sitcom starring Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani.

 Preview: "Joey"--AllYourTV.com
Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I was not looking forward to seeing the pilot for "Joey." The sitcom, a spin-off of "Friends" already slated for that show's old timeslot, seemed to be closer to "After M*A*S*H" than "Frasier." Still, I was hoping for the best.
The bad news is that the first 60 seconds of the "Joey" pilot are an absolute disaster.
There's a couple of "jokes" as he fumbles for the address of his sister, then it turns out that Joey got off the plane at the wrong stop.

Now that NBC's hit TV sitcom "Friends" is scheduled to disappear from the Thursday night "Must-See TV" lineup in May after its current, 10th season, we've been fed the predictable litany of stories declaring this the end of an era.
Sitcoms also used to have more guts when "The Jeffersons" (and "All in the Family" before it) tackled racial issues with both irreverence and blunt honesty.
Maybe today's TV sitcoms are more frank about sexuality, but in that arena we're really just catching up with Europe.

JOEY is to Friends what Frasier was to Cheers -- a spin-off of a mega-series hoping to become another mega-series.
Episodes feature Joey trying to make friends, meet women, land parts, and deal with sitcom-esque scenarios that make fun of his less-than-sparkling intellect but highlight his good heart and childlike spirit.

The show puts Joey in an apartment complex run by a sexy but married neighbor (the so-far not-so-interesting Andrea Anders) and has him rooming with his nephew, whose attempts to escape his controlling mother seem, so far, futile.
We know Joey's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he's got other qualities that could be emphasized as well.
Whether “Joey” ends up as another “Frasier” or another “Golden Palace” (the late, not-so-lamented spin-off of “The Golden Girls”) remains to be seen.

 What makes a spin-off succeed? - TELEVISION - MSNBC.com
Thus, the producers of "Joey" should avoid the temptation to make Joey more conventionally likable by toning down the slightly disagreeable, though human, attributes of his character that we’ve come to know over the years.
If the star of “Joey” is suddenly very bright, careful of his diet, or unlucky with women (in other words: if he becomes Chandler), he won’t be the character we know, and the show won’t connect with its intended audience.
Viewers know what Joey’s like with his friends; it would be fun, and, more importantly, different, to see him with his professional peers.
