Former teen idol Joey Lawrence is getting ready for his new ABC Family sitcom with co-star Melissa Joan Hart, and the Blossom alum hopes the two can "tap back into the same magic" from the duo's recent hit television movie My Fake Fiancé.
Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence reunite for sitcom
"When the movie worked, ABC came to us immediately after that, like literally a week after, and asked ...
Question: Now that Joey is DOA on its return, again we have the debate about the death of what we know as the traditional sitcom. My question is, was Joey that bad?

If you're an optimist and old-fashioned romantic, then sure — consider them married.
Of course Danza wasn't one to settle down easily in real life, either, especially during the time the hit ABC sitcom was on the air (1984 to 199
