Critic Reviews

  1. Old-chestnut premise notwithstanding, the show wants to be modern, and the humor occasionally pushes further than one might expect from a family comedy.
  2. Although the show is reminiscent of the kid-friendly TGIF lineup, some of the jokes are for the PG-13 crowd.
  3. It's far from unwatchable, and there's potential in its leads, if they're left to their own devices. It's also possible that this middle-of-the-road sitcom will hit nostalgic buttons in former "Sabrina" and "Blossom" fans.

    Despite the backstory, the humor is conventionally jolly. [30 Aug 2010, p.38]

    The network has brought back Hart and Lawrence, who are both 34 (whoa!), in a sitcom called Melissa & Joey, premiering Tuesday night, which isn't half-bad. You could do worse--say, "Hot in Cleveland."

It feels less like a mainstream sitcom, and more like something the Disney channel would air with it's lame storylines and even lamer jokes, however, at the heart of Melissa & Joey we find an obvious chemistry between the cast which provides great potential to create a funny, natural feeling sitcom - if only the creators would realise this.
