Despite the backstory, the humor is conventionally jolly. Hart has the comic edge over Lawrence: She's girlish and goofy, like a plush-doll Jane Krakowski.
I'm a bit of a dope when it comes to Hart; I squealed inwardly when I first learned of this show. She may not be destined to play Lady Macbeth, or even Rosalind, but she can brighten a TV screen.
Melissa & Joey are working again, and working hard, goshdarnit, for you. Your job is to sit there, numb, and remember Melissa and Joey fondly. Think about it: Is there anything that would be nicer to have back with us than the 1990s?
It's far from unwatchable, and there's potential in its leads, if they're left to their own devices.
ABC Family has been on something of a creative roll on the dramatic side. Melissa & Joey, by contrast, represents a decided lurch back toward the bland old days, grasping at TGIF's ostensible niche while offering precious little for which to be thankful.
