From tonight’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes, a preview of the re-revamped Tonight Show.

By the way, ABC Family has picked up a new sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, sort of a knockoff of Who’s the Boss? but with Boy Meets World writers. (ABC Family seems to be trying to bring back that type of show — that is, a “family” show but pitched older than the stuff Disney Channel does. The other pilot they ordered and didn’t pick up was from Michael Jacobs.) And no, there’s nothing inherently wrong with their return to TV; they’re both old pros at this point.

The reason I mention this here is that if Lawrence is getting a show again, this brings him one step closer to getting on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. This is something that would be fascinating for those who remember Bill Hicks’s almost 20 year-old dream of what would happen if Leno interviewed Joey Lawrence: “My God, what have I done with my life! I used to be funny!”
