I hear ABC Family is close to giving a back order to Melissa & Joey. The size of the order is believed to be between 10-12 additional episodes. No surprise here – ABC Family brass has been happy with the performance of the freshman comedy, which premiered in June as ABC Family’s biggest ever series debut among adults 18-49, 1.3 million. In total viewers, Melissa & Joey, which stars Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, drew 2.2 million viewers, the most watched comedy series debut ever for the cable network.
