Matt LeBlanc to Star in New Showtime Comedy Called Episodes

Matt LeBlanc Returns to TV as Matt LeBlanc

Matt LeBlanc's career hasn't exactly been blossoming since his days as Joey Tribbiani, but Friends fans will be happy to know that he's returning to the small screen on a new Showtime comedy called Episodes. The show focuses on a British couple who find their successful show in the UK adapted into a "dumbed-down" American sitcom starring LeBlanc, which means he'll be playing himself on the show.

With popular BBC shows like The Office and Skins adapted for American audiences, the premise for Episodes is timely and sounds like it has the potential to be pretty funny. Plus, LeBlanc poking fun at himself just might be gold — are you excited to welcome him back to TV?

he's a pretty good actor - he was so funny on friends, but have u seen him in interviews?! he actually has a pretty flat, boring personality... unless i watched a bad interview or something? but he was pretty bland in one interview i saw, but he's definitely really funny as joey! if i'm wrong, please correct me :)

haha; I just love the idea of showing how American tv truly is dumbed down, especially compared to British. this sounds good; I still have a spft spot for him; no, he isn't all that talented (although I would say his success on Friends was more good typecasting - he pretty much is Joey Tribbiani; although, I hope, much smarter - rather than good co-stars). I agree that it does sound like The Comeback, which I still really want to see (I almost feel bad for still not having watched it - I heard it was pretty good); and I agree that it better have some good writers...

It might be good, only time will tell.

Meh, I don't think he's a very good actor. I think he was good on Friends but he was strengthened by his castmates on that. I have no interest in seeing him in a show that's not Friends.
