In a previous episode of Friends, Joey (Matt LeBlanc) takes Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) to the set of Days of our Lives.  She watches him perform a hot love scene. In the next episode airing tonight, April 17, 2003, titled “The One with Rachel’s Dream,”  Rachel cannot shake the romantic notions she’s feeling about Joey since her visit with him to the set and seeing him perform. 


Matt Ashford and Kyle Lowder (Jack and Brady, DOOL) star as themselves on Friends.Then, on April 24, 2003 in an episode titled “The One With the Soap Opera Party,” real life stars of Days of our Lives cross over into primetime when Joey throws a roof-top party for his castmates.

Lisa Kudrow also stars.

In the preposterous pondering department, how can Joey, who lives in NYC, star on Days of our Lives, which tapes in Los Angeles, and still be home every evening to hang with his Friends at Central Perk?  Have they invented a new teleporter that we haven’t heard about, or is this just another one of those mysteries of the magic of television!  :)  Probably neither. It is just that both Friends and Days of our Lives are NBC network programs.   Having Joey star on ABC’s All My Children (which does tape in NYC), would definitely go against the NBC corporate grain.
