‘Melissa And Joey’ returns tonight! Watch our interview with Melissa for a sneak peek.
To say that Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence are upping their game for the second half of Melissa & Joey‘s first season would be a huge understatement. Along with the ABC Family comedy’s usual brand of snappy one-liners and madcap shenanigans, Melissa tells HollywoodLife.com to expect “some fun, edgy, racy little episodes” when the series returns at 8 p.m. tonight.
“We have great guest stars, like Vivica A. Fox, John Ratzenberger from Cheers and Leslie Grossman, who plays my cousin,” Melissa adds. “We also have Megan Hilty, a hilarious actress who plays Joey’s ex-wife.”
Melissa even gave us a preview of her favorite upcoming episode:
“We have a Lost in Translation episode where I’m meeting with a Japanese business man and Joey has to translate,” she tells us. “But the guy starts hitting on me and Joey doesn’t like it, so he translates it wrong — and somehow it comes out that I have diarrhea.”

Plus, find out about A Jar For A Jar — a charity very close to Melissa’s heart — and how you can get involved, even through Facebook. (Their goal is to send 1 million jars of baby food to hungry kids this summer, so let’s make that happen!)
