    I had the entire 2nd season saved on my tivo until I reset it completely. And I dont miss it. I am sure the S2 box will come out for those obsessed with the dead. :)

    Uhm dude. It was dead in May.
    You can put it on your cancelled show list, right next to Enterprise.

    I don't accept that Enterprise is dead yet. :D

    Joey could one day end up being shown on HDNet for they are showing Life On A Stick along with other failed TV Series.

    This is TiVo. You can have what you want! :)

    Delete your Joey wishlist and create a KEYWORD wishlist as follows: JOEY LEBLANC MATTEO with Category THEMES/COMEDY. You may also want to create a second one with JOEY LEBLANC ANDERS. Don't put quotes or anything else in there, just those three keywords.

    The idea is to come up with a combination of keywords that are unique to the sitcom Joey, so play around with variations and keep checking Upcoming Programs. If you get no hits, it may work for you ... but of course you won't REALLY know unless you see "JOEY" in the results, which may be "never"!

    I did something similar with GALACTICA OLMOS a while back, and it worked like a charm. Good luck!

    Thanks for those tips. Are we sure that this would successfully catch a real Joey episode? I don't recognize what MATTEO and ANDERS refer to.

    That's the problem ... unless some station somewhere at some time decides to schedule an episode of Joey, you won't know if it works.

    MATTEO is for Drea de Matteo, the actress who played Joey's sister, and ANDERS is for Andrea Anders, who played the neighbor.

    One way you can test is to pick a current program, ex: CSI, and try a KEYWORD wishlist like CSI PETERSEN DOURDAN - this should only pick up the CSI Las Vegas shows, skipping the MIAMI and NY versions. If it works for CSI, it could and should work for JOEY...

    Okay. I guess (due to my nonobservance) I didn't realize the real actors' name are always in the guide data/description. Of course I guess I can confirm this by analyzing a large number of shows to verify this is always true. If so, then it should be true for Joey as well. This is useful information; thanks. It had never occurred to me to use this strategy for a Wish List. :)

    The only way Joey will ever be on TV again is, if the show is sold in syndication. The more shows that a program has in the can the better chance it will be sold into syndication. I believe Joey might have two seasons, I can't remember. That may not be enough for a serious snydication run.

    You need 100 shows for syndication.

    Actually, the trend lately has been for oddball networks to pick up dead shows with no syndication hope and air them... I could see Bravo perhaps taking on Joey at some point as time filler (they are NBC owned and air other NBC content).

    Well I'll only watch it if they air new eps, as I've already seen the eps aired so far.

    I think there are only a handful of unaired eps so good luck with that ;)

    Then again, they might put out a S2 box to finish it out, who knows.

    Is this a guideline or a rule?

    I believe that its a rule that is occasionally bent if a show is popular. Consider that most syndicated shows air 5x a week, so they need enough material to keep it from being the same episodes over and over.

    While not distrubuted in a syndication deal, many shows with far less than 100 episodes have been revived as repeats on cable networks. For example, the Logo channel picked up the rights to "Wonderfalls", Sci-Fi got Firefly and John Doe, etc.

    For syndication to a local OTA station, though, the stations want a series that can air M-F for at least 20 weeks straight, allowing the local station to put run two different series in one time slot, one starting in the fall, the other in the spring. That's where the "100" comes from for syndication.

    According to the guide at epguides.com, there are 8 unaired eps.

    I would imagine a box set for S2 would be released. It would sell just for the fact that it has unaired episodes on it.
