Not every Kickstarter film-funding effort ends in multimillion-dollar success, a la actor-writer-director Zach Braff's recent campaign or that achieved by the cast and creators of the canceled CW show "Veronica Mars. " Just ask actress Melissa Joan Hart, who failed in her efforts to raise $2 million for a romantic comedy in which she was hoping to star. Turns out fans of the '90s child star -- best known for the "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" TV movie and series  -- weren't so interested in watching her play a single thirtysomething forced to attend her sister's wedding solo in Thailand.

Melissa Joan Hart is pregnant for the third time, which means she may be holding a basketball, or perhaps a watermelon, and standing behind tall chairs on upcoming episodes of "Melissa & Joey. " Joey Lawrence, in fact, may be forced to remove his shirt more often to draw eyes away from his costar's expanding waistline. Their sitcom is returning May 30 for a second season on ABC Family.  One promo for the two-episode premiere shows Lawrence minus his shirt, pecs bulging and glistening.

The child star who grows into a drug-using train wreck is a cliche that some might have thought  Melissa Joan Hart escaped. The sweet star of "Clarissa Explains It All" and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" always appeared to be one of the more grounded actresses in Hollywood. But appearances can be deceiving. In a memoir to be released next month, Hart reveals a period of drug experimentation that included ecstacy, pot, mushrooms and mescaline. She partied at the Playboy mansion and kissed a girl -- all in one night.

It might have been the kiss of death for a certain fluffy little Friday sitcom when ABC moved the month-old series from its comfortable 8:30 p.m. slot to go head to head at 9 with Fox's much ballyhooed, blood-soaked "Millennium." Instead, the network switch last October was a vote of confidence for one of the few new hits of the season, "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," which is holding its own and better against Fox's intended blockbuster.

I would like to thank the academy . . . for the memories. The night of the Emmys was great. Sunday's celebration of 50 years of television moved me as it was meant to. Television has become a part of our lives, and a celebration of its influence over the last 50 years shouldn't go unnoticed. I'm one of those people who believe television can be a good influence in a child's life. My 12-year-old daughter's role model, Helen Hunt, is not a shallow one. She is a strong woman in her own right, who not only acts--and excels at it--but also directs and writes.

Melissa Joan Hart may have been able to work magic when she played teenage witch "Sabrina" on television about a decade ago. But losing pounds after giving birth to her third child in September wasn't likely to happen with the snap of magical fingers. Instead, she reportedly turned to Nutrisystem for help in shedding the pesky pounds (20, so far). On Tuesday, Nutrisystem announced via news release that Hart, 36, is its newest spokes-celebrity. In that role, she'll be able to "explain it all" for you -- kind of like her character Clarissa did in another popular show from the early 1990s.

Though last rites have been administered more than once, the situation comedy is the most resilient of television formats. Time-honored and stable, it is also highly adaptable, ranging easily in attitude from the sincere to the ironic, in form from the classical to the postmodern. The sitcom also has the practical merit of being comparatively economical and easy to make (which does not mean, of course, easy to make well), and after having been largely driven from the screen by reality shows and police procedurals, it is creeping back in around the edges.

A comedy called "Melissa & Joey," starring and produced by Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, received a 10-episode order from ABC Family and will premiere this year. Hart, who starred in "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" from 1996 to 2003, will portray the grown-up former wild child of a political family who is now a local politician herself and is forced to care for her teenage niece and pre-adolescent nephew after her sister is jailed and her brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits.

Ever wish that you could just wave a magic wand and--poof!--you wouldn't have to work out or diet? Even witches have to work at it. Melissa Joan Hart does as "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" (ABC). Hart, 21, does put the whammy on skin problems, though. "Tea tree [oil] I use all the time, like if I get zits or for my scalp if I've had a rough week with blow dryers." * Question: Any other potions? Answer: I put tub tea--they're like big tea bags--in the bath to relax and Ylang-ylang.
