A Few Potential Taglines for Our 'Friend' Matt LeBlanc's New Show Man With a Plan

Matt LeBlanc’s CBS comedy Man With a Plan premiered on Monday night to okay ratings, according to Variety, which reports that the show “opened solidly, if not spectacularly.” Alright!

On Show With a Man, LeBlanc plays a stay-at-home dad who does two things: stay at home and be a dad. The series initially cast another TV regular, The Office’s Jenna Fisher, opposite LeBlanc, but Fisher was later axed due to “chemistry issues” with him. Perhaps she could’ve helped the ratings.


In my fall TV preview earlier this year, I gave LeBlanc’s show a hard pass, so I regret to inform you that I did not and will not watch. But after noticing a promo billboard with the tagline “Matt’s Le-Back” (it rhymes, plays off his name and also references Friends, in case you missed the joke), I’d like to help these people out with my own suggestions for their marketing campaign.


  • An Old Friend Is Back In Town ;)
  • Friend Him.
  • Are You Man’s Best Friend?
  • How You Doin’?...Again!
  • Hey, Friend...
  • Make Man With A Plan Your New Man-Friend
  • You’ve Got a Friend
  • Watch It Like You Watched Friends
  • The One With the Old Friend

That’s all I’ve got. Hope this helps.
