Melissa & Joey

Sitcom stars from the ’90s, together at last

Posted on

Reboots are all the rage these days, and while Melissa & Joey isn’t technically one, it might as well be Who’s the Boss? 2.0. Melissa Joan Hart stars as a local politician who hires Joey Lawrence as a manny to take care of her house and the nephew and niece she inherited. Squint while watching tonight’s two episodes and you’ll think Angela and Tony have been resurrected! Because this is on ABC Family, it comes with a big helping of cheesy jokes, but Hart and Lawrence share a buoyant, delightful chemistry. B+
