Matt LeBlanc Jokes About His Past on 'Friends,' and His Spin-Off 'Joey' (VIDEO)

Matt LeBlanc, 'The Graham Norton Show'Matt LeBlanc may be having a lot of fun playing an exaggerated version of the actor Matt LeBlanc on 'Episodes,' but that persona wouldn't exist if it weren't for the show that made him who he is, 'Friends.' On 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM on BBC America), LeBlanc talked about his experiences on the show.

After all these years, he's still thanking the audiences that tuned in. "Thanks everyone for watching it," he said. "We're all really, really happy." By really, really happy he means they're all still swimming in piles of cash almost a decade later.

Graham Norton then shifted gears to a darker chapter in LeBlanc's life.

"When it's finally finishing," Norton said, referring to 'Friends,' "Was there a slightly awkward moment where they kind of went, 'And the winner of the spin-off is... ?'"

It might have seemed like a big win at the time, but it didn't really turn out that way as 'Joey' remains the butt of jokes to this day. When asked how the cast responded, LeBlanc said, "Everyone was real supportive. See ya later!"

They knew. Somehow they knew!

frankly, would assign Seinfeld AND Friends as to how the demise of even semi watchable tv abounds ...We get 16mins of self indulgence while the other minutes of the basic 30mins are but commercials and too, the ever constant screen feed of what is coming up imposed as well. Realizing "they(those in charge) figure the audience has attention spans less than general gnats, astounded they slide on by with a vast array by those bereft of some actual talent other than good agents able to captipult them to richly rewarding celebrityhood (at the expense of ALL else !!

Friends was a fun show and should not be compared to the stupid reality shows we are being inundated with. I enjoyed the show and frankly the Joey character was my least favorite of the six. LeBlancs Joey spinoff was horrible and only clarified why I liked his character the least.....

It is because of that show that we have all these stupid reality shows. Much,much,much cheaper to produce.

Thanks to him and his other 5 loser "Friends" we now have all these reality shows. 6M just for the 6 friends as compared to $25,000 for a reality show.
