When we heard that ABC Family was developing a new sitcom for their comedy Wednesday lineup, we weren’t entirely thrilled. They haven’t had much luck in the past. Yes, they struck gold with Melissa and Joey because of the amazing chemistry between Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence but they also had some duds like State of Georgia and Ruby and the Rockits.
Once the cast was announced, my hopes immediately began to rise. Jean-Luc Bilodeau was fantastic on Kyle Xy and we couldn’t wait to see how he would fare in a comedic atmosphere. Plus, do you see how he grew up? He’s beautiful. Tahj Mowry was on one of our favorite shows of the 90’s: Smart Guy, so we couldn’t wait to see him back on our screens. Chelsea Kane is also another fantastic actress. Fans may recognize her from The Disney Channel or Dancing With The Stars.
We eagerly switched our channel over for the premiere of Baby Daddy and we were not disappointed.
The cast worked extremely well together and I surprised myself a ton by actually laughing out loud on more than one occasion. The show makes a fantastic addition to ABC Family’s Comedy Wednesdays and we’re more than happy to recommend it to anyone who wonders if they should watch.
Here’s hoping this is just the start of the sitcom comeback.
