Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence
When '90s sitcom stars Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence teamed up for the ABC Family movie My Fake Fiance, they never expected that fans would fall so in love with the duo that it would prompt the network to create a series just for them. Why are the stars of Melissa & Joey so popular? "We've got nostalgia behind us. We've each had two successful series and the audience, more so than Hollywood, likes to see a reincarnation," Hart tells TVGuide.com.

Expect to feel some déjà vu when The Middle returns on September 22 with an episode that reunites Patricia Heaton with her Everybody Loves Raymond mother-in-law, Doris Roberts. And for Heaton, it's like old times when her character, Frankie, ends up on the losing side of a battle with Roberts, who plays Brick's teacher Ms. Rinsky, a woman Heaton describes as "very no-nonsense and sick of interfering parents like Frankie."

Men of a Certain Age
Viewers who tune into TNT's Men of a Certain Age (Monday, 10/9c) won't find the next decade's version of Everybody Loves Raymond, and they certainly won't laugh as much as they're used to.
Ray Romano, who used his unique perspective on life to tell jokes, first as a stand-up comedian and later as a sitcom star, uses that same perspective to examine weightier issues. And even though Raymond depicted Romano's semi-autobiographical experiences as a son, brother, husband and father, he says his new character, golfer-turned-party-store-owner Joe Tranelli, is much closer to home.

"That's the sad part. This is more in common [with] me than Ray Barone," Romano says...
Brad Garrett in Monk by Trae Patton/USA Network Photo
Cheers to Brad Garrett for his image-changing guest spot on Monk. The 'Til Death star livened up the seventh-season premiere as "Honest Jake," a murderous handyman hired by Tony Shalhoub's obsessive-compulsive detective to fix up his new house. (The inside joke here, of course, is that Garrett was TV's original poster boy for OCD as cop Robert Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond.) The 6'8" Garrett effectively used his size for menace rather than mirth. Maybe he can intimidate Death's writers to give him scripts equal to his talent.

Ray Romano by Robert Mora/WireImage.com
Three years after the end of Everybody Loves Raymond, Ray Romano could be back on TV soon. The comedian is starring in Men of a Certain Age, a TNT pilot that he created with Raymond writer-producer Mike Royce, Variety says. In a bold development route, TNT is diving into the pilot straight from the script. Men will center on three fortysomethings in mid-life crises, offering what's described as a Sideways-ish tone as well as a dash of thirtysomething. At a recent movie premiere, Romano hinted at his new gig, and described his philosophy for the series as "write what you know, and write what you cry about."What's your take? Is this new concept a combo you'd want to see picked up, or a rehash of subjects well-trodden? Or, with Romano at the helm, does it even matter what it's about?
