'Melissa & Joey' Recap - 'Pilot'

by Laura Prudom, posted Aug 17th 2010 8:30PM
Melissa & JoeyABC Family gave us a total blast from the past tonight with the welcome return of Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence to our screens; for a minute, it felt like we were back in the '90s.

While 'Melissa & Joey' doesn't have the inherent charm of 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,' 'Clarissa Explains It All' or 'Blossom,' it does have nascent promise, thanks to the two leads, who still look fresh-faced and fairly adorable. The plot is easily reminiscent of 'Who's the Boss,' which seems to be a prerequisite reference in every review, but it's obvious that a show like this will hinge on the chemistry between the two stars, who are still trying to find their footing in the pilot.

Melissa Joan Hart & Joey Lawrence Talk 'Melissa & Joey,' Dream Guest Stars & Child Acting (VIDEO)

Melissa & JoeyYou know her from 'Clarissa Explains It All' and 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch,' he's still getting "Whoa!" from his days on 'Blossom' and they've both gone 'Dancing With the Stars,' but now Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence are back on TV and teaming up for a new show.

But don't worry -- 'Melissa & Joey' (premieres Tues., Aug. 17, 8PM ET on ABC Family) isn't a reality show about two child actors whose careers survived. It's a sitcom that thrusts both of them into more adult roles: her as a career gal with custody of her niece and nephew, and him as their manny by default.

I caught up with Melissa and Joey to hear about their new show, dream guest stars, which actors they'd hire as a manny, growing up in Hollywood, loving Twitter and more.

'Blossom' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Blossom where are they now
ABC Family announced recently that 'Blossom' alum Joey Lawrence and 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' star Melissa Joan Hart will star in an upcoming sitcom, 'Melissa & Joey,' about a politician (Hart) who hires a manny (Lawrence) to take care of her live-in niece and nephew.

The duo already co-starred in a very successful made-for-TV ABC Family movie, 'My Fake Fiance,' last year, and both are also past 'Dancing With the Stars' contenders, but we were wondering ... what else has former teen pin-up Lawrence and the rest of his 'Blossom' buddies been up to since their NBC sitcom left the airwaves in 1995?

Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence Reunite for ABC Family Sitcom

by Chris Jordan, posted Feb 1st 2010 3:01PM
The chemistry between Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, who co-starred in the ABC Family movie 'My Fake Fiance' last spring, was apparently good enough to warrant its own show.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network has just ordered 10 episodes of a new comedy series, aptly titled 'Melissa & Joey.' The upcoming sitcom is set to hit the small-screen airwaves sometime this year.

'My Fake Fiance,' in which Hart and Lawrence played two schemers who stage an engagement between them to collect wedding presents, garnered more than three million viewers when it premiered in April. In the new series, Hart will play an overwrought politician who hires Lawrence to help straighten out her family issues.

Mayim Bialik talks about her faith and her return to acting

saving grace mayim bialik
I suppose if you want to be cynical, you could say that Mayim Bialik is in the midst of a comeback, with several recent television roles, including guest stints on Bones, Secret Life of the American Teenager, and now, Saving Grace. However, it's not as though the erstwhile star of Blossom has spent the last fifteen years sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. After the series' end, she attended UCLA, got married, had two children, and even earned her PhD last year.

Ms. (er, Dr.) Bialik has indeed been busy, but she is now looking to make her way back into Hollywood. She's guest-starring on Saving Grace tonight as Esther, a Hasidic Jewish mother of seven, whose own mother is found murdered in a field full of dead cows. I spoke with Mayim about Saving Grace, the lasting legacy of Blossom, and how she hopes people see her today.

Blossom's Boys - Joey vs. Tony - VIDEO

blossom mayim bialik nbc sitcom 90'sShould Blossom be considered classic sitcom? Mmmprobably not. But to many a 20-something, the NBC sitcom was an unlikely success that, through a blend of irreverence and quirkiness, lasted five seasons and proved culturally resonant in its approach to covering "realistic topics" relevant to teenagers of the nineties.

Joey Lawrence is hosting a new dance show for TLC

by Kristin Sample, posted May 16th 2008 6:07PM
Joey on Dancing with the StarsTLC has a new competition series called Master of Dance (worst title ever). The show will test dancers' skills by changing the song mid-performance to measure the breadth of their repertoire and the level of their creativity. This sounds a little too much like Freezedance but for prize money. The grand prise is $50,000 to be exact.

Joey Lawrence will host and there will be three judges: Lucinda Dickey (Solid Gold, Breakin'), Tyce Diorio (choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance), and Loni Love (comedienne voted one of Comedy Central's Top 20 Comics to Watch in 2008).

The best and the worst post-DWTS careers - VIDEO

Shandi Finnessey - DWTSOur pals over at AOL have a list up of those celebrities that have seen a boost to their careers after appearing on Dancing With The Stars. Head over there to see what John, Tatum, Stacy, and eight others are up to.

A gig on a show that counts itself as two of the top ten most watched programs every week certainly offers ample opportunities. But, like KISS said, there are two sides of the coin to choose from. So... after the jump, a look at those celebrities that have been somewhat less successful after their time in the ballroom.

Are you ready for a Dancing With The Stars fitness book?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 26th 2007 5:22PM

Dancing with the StarsHarperCollins, ABC, and BBC Worldwide are getting together to create a book you've all been waiting for: a fitness guide based on the hit show Dancing with the Stars.

According to the press release, the book "will reveal for the first time how some of the stars and dancers got into the best shape of their lives. Included will be healthy recipes and simple dance moves as well as never before seen pictures and quotes from the stars and their partners."

Yeah, because I've always wondered how Tucker Carlson stays in such great shape.

Dancing with the Stars goes on the road

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 28th 2006 6:37PM
drew lachey; dancing with the starsDancing with the Stars is getting a roadshow. Celebrities paired with real dancers will tour 38 U.S. cities, starting with San Diego on Dec. 19th. Celebrity contestants include Drew Lachey, Joey Lawrence, Willa Ford, Harry Hamlin (what?!?), Lisa Rinna and Joey McIntyre.

Why would anyone want to see this live? Absent-mindedly watching this on a Tuesday night is one thing... but actually paying cash to see mediocre dancers? American Idol does the same thing-- it sends mediocre singers on an American tour each year. I think the difference is the demogaphics.

Would you pay to watch Dancing with the Stars if they visited your town?

Dancing: Odds in favor of Mario Lopez

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 12th 2006 3:49PM
mario lopezBecause people will bet on anything, the odds for ABC's Dancing with the Stars favor Mario Lopez for the win. Right now he's a 3-1 favorite, according to PinnacleSports.com. All he has going for him is, a long damn time ago, Lopez once danced and played drums on Disney's Kids Incorporated (two references in one week??). Just looking at the photos of the contestants, Lopez actually looks like he belongs while the others look awkward (especially Tucker Carlson).

The second and third favored are High School Musical star Monique Coleman with 9-2 and bald Joey Lawrence with 6-1 odds. Least likely to win, according to the odds, is Jerry Springer, followed by Shanna Moakler, Willa Ford and Sara Evans.

Dancing with the Stars debuts tonight at 8 pm.

Tom DeLay stumps for 'Dancing' contestant

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 8th 2006 1:42PM
sara evansThe future of America hinges on whether a Democrat or a Republican wins Dancing with the Stars! At least, that's what Tom DeLay will have his supporters believe. The Texas Congressman is actually on a mission to sway the vote in favor of one particular Dancing with the Stars contestant. According to this blogger, he sent a letter to his supporters encouraging them to call in and vote for country singer Sara Evans. Evidently she leans a little to the right. In his letter to supporters, DeLay said Evans "represents American values in the media." He also calls out fellow contestant Jerry Springer, calling him an "ultra liberal talk show host". So... what does it mean if Joey Lawrence wins?

Dancing with the Stars premieres on Tuesday, September 12th.

The new Dancing with the Stars cast is announced

Dancing with the StarsThe big news on Good Morning America this morning wasn't about the UK terror plot or the cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah. The big news was... drumroll please... the announcement of the new cast of Dancing with the Stars!

Thaaat's right, kiddies... the new group of has-beens, never-wases and out-of-place sports legends is now set to strut their stuff on the dance floor this fall, and this group is a doozy. We already knew that MSNBC's Tucker Carlson is participating, and there had been rumors that soon-to-be Hall of Fame running back Emmit Smith was going to be there, so those two aren't a big surprise. But we also get to see Jerry Springer, Joey ("Whoa!") Lawrence, Vivica A. Fox, Harry Hamlin (probably glomming on wife Lisa Rinna's success last year), Willa Ford, Monique Coleman of High School Musical, Sara Evans, Mario Lopez, and model and ex-Mrs. Barker Shanna Moakler (probably in the spot that was reserved for Beth Ostrosky).

Looks like it's going to be an interesting season. Maybe Emmit Smith will surprise everyone and win it all. Cowboy fans must be hiding their heads in their hats right now.
