Melissa & Joey Season 2 Launch Date; Friends Week-Long Spring Marathon on Nick at Nite; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of March 12, 2012)
As we first broke on Twitter last night, ABC Family will launch season two of original sitcom Melissa & Joey on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 with two all-new episodes at 8:00pm & 8:30pm. The sitcom of course stars Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. The first season was split up in half and had a total of 30 episodes. No word yet how many there are for yet season two, but we do know it is starting off with a two-episode premiere. We don't have any more details on this yet, so you'll have to keep it right here for further updates. ABC Family also new sitcom Baby Daddy starring Chelsea Kane, Melissa Peterman, Tahj Mowry, Jean-Luc Bilodeau and Derek Theler. If I were to guess, that would premiere the following Wednesday at 8:30pm. But that's just a guess as we don't know yet. ABC Family will be making an official announcement in the coming weeks on both sitcoms, so stay tuned!
Spring is in the air and before spring begins on March 20, Nick at Nite will air a week-long Friends Spring Fling marathon next week! The marathon begins Monday, March 12 and will through Friday, March 16, 2012 airing 8pm-6am on all five nights. It's wall-to-wall Friends with your favorite friends Joey Tribbiani, Phoebe Buffay, Monica Geller, Rachel Green, Ross Geller and Chandler Bing. These six friends pursue careers, love and happiness in New York City while relying on each other for support. This marathon happens a few days after we set our clocks ahead, as we spring forward this Saturday night. Friends regularly airs every night from 11pm-1am on Nick at Nite.
It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars, so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
