Ashley Scott was let go in June 2004 when her character, Allison, a potential love interest for Matt LeBlanc's Joey, tested very poorly at the pilot screening in May 2004. Producers have decided to develop a new love interest.
The first time "How you doin'?" was said in this series was in Episode 1.2 by Gina (Drea de Matteo).
In every episode (except the Pilot), Joey's Magna Doodle has something different drawn on it: - Episode One: A bird; looks like a phoenix rising from the fire/ashes. - Joey and the Party: A goat eating out of a garbage can, in front of the Hollywood sign. - Joey and the Book Club: A hula dancer. - Joey and the Perfect Storm: A snail saying, "Weee" as it rides on a turtle's back. - Joey and the Nemesis: A scene from Aesop's Fable, "The Fox and the Grapes." (The fox, snapping at the grapes, just out of reach.) - Joey and the Husband: A Dragon - Joey and the Dream Girl, Part 1: A cowboy riding a bomb through the air (scene from Dr. Strangelove) - Joey and the Dream Girl, Part 2: In the first scene is was the same cowboy riding a bomb that was used in the previous episode. After that, it was a killer whale jumping over someone in the water... who looked a lot like Gumby - Joey and the Big Audition: A stunt rider on a motorcycle - Joey and the Road Trip: Lilies and a hummingbird - Joey and the Plot Twist: A dog peeing on a frightened snowman, instead of on the nearby fire-hydrant - Joey and the Taste Test: Logo for Fox Motocross Gear - Joey and the Premier: A family walking beneath the night sky - Joey and the Assistant: BMX biker on a half pipe - Joey and the Tonight Show: A guy in a hospital bed; a dog sitting nearby; the number 428 - Joey and the Valentine's Date: A Bulldog sitting on a chair
