Nevermind what Ricky Van Veen was doing on the Joey wikipedia page. There are certainly not going to be any judgments from me. But someone out there in Wikipedia land took the time to reveal the long-forgotten spinoff’s big secret:

The initial name of the show, “Let’s Talk Sandwiches”, was changed before the initial air date. This was a somewhat controversial decision as the majority of the pilot and subsequent episodes dealt with the eating, talking about, or eating and talking about sandwiches.

(Slightly) related: last night I ran across this confounding alternate title for The Talented Mr. Ripley on the pages of everyone involved with the film, on IMDB:

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) (screenplay)

… aka The Mysterious Yearning Secretive Sad Lonely Troubled Confused Loving Musical Gifted Intelligent Beautiful Tender Sensitive Haunted Passionate Talented Mr. Ripley (USA: complete title)

What?
