I think getting a look inside the world of ‘Mel & Joe’ around the holidays will be fun for the people that like our show.

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

"TVRage: First, let's talk the holiday episode. I was able to screen it the other day, and I really enjoyed it. What are you looking forward to seeing in the episode?

Joey Lawrence: I’m looking forward to seeing how other people feel about it. What I like most of all is that for the first time ABC Family included a couple of their serialized shows in their big 25 Days of Christmas, which is always so much fun … Us, and ‘Baby Daddy,’ are going to get to be a part of [the festivities of the holiday season]. I think getting a look inside the world of ‘Mel & Joe’ around the holidays will be fun for the people that like our show. I think it’s a funny episode, and it’s our first holiday episode that we’ve done for the Christmas holiday. I think people are excited about it. I’ve been getting a lot of tweets about it, so, I’m excited to see what they [fans] think.

TVRage: Now, let’s talk the upcoming second half of Season 3. What can we expect from the premiere episode?

Lawrence: Well, something really good. I’ll tell you that. I can’t say much more. We’re in the middle of shooting right now. We just wrapped last night’s episode that I directed, and, honest to God, this is probably, so far, the best season that we’ve ever done. We’re really hitting a real strong groove. These shows that we’re shooting right now are so good. I think people are really going to like it [Season 3B]. I think it will be our best one yet."

The 'Melissa & Joey' holiday special airs Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 8/7c on ABC Family.
