Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will be back together again this fall on CBS, as the network has staged a “Friends” reunion of sorts, scheduling both of the actor’s shows on the same night.
LeBlanc’s new comedy series “Man With A Plan” debuts this October on CBS Monday nights at 8:30 p.m., while the third season of “Perry’s “Odd Couple” is on Mondays at 9:30 p.m., reported Variety.
“It’s funny because Les Moonves put us together in the first place when he ran Warner Bros, so maybe that’s his plan — maybe he’s the man with the plan!” LeBlanc said while speaking of the president and CEO of CBS Corporation who spearheaded “Friends” back in the day.
While CBS has not commented on LeBlanc and Perry’s shows airing on the same night, bringing the two “Friends” stars back together seems like an obvious marketing tool that at the very least will generate social media buzz.
Asked if he would like to guest star on “Odd Couple” or if he’d like to have Perry come onto “Man With A Plan,” LeBlanc teased the possibility.
“Sure. We’ll see what happens. My show is set in Pittsburgh and I think his is in New York so it’s not too far away, right? Just a train ride!,” LeBlanc said.
