It seems like ABC Family is starting to hit big with their shows. The cable network has ordered 20 more episodes to their sitcom Melissa & Joey, bringing the first season total to 30 episodes. That is roughly 12-15 episodes more than most cable series get for a season, which means ABC Family has high hopes for the show.
The series stars Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, with critics calling the series an updated version of Who’s the Boss? While the ratings have cooled down considerably since the premiere, the sitcom is still averaging above 1.4 million viewers per episode.
The two stars first appeared together on the ABC Family movie My Fake Fiance that premiered to decent ratings and strong reviews about the two lead stars’ chemistry together.
