Philly Fans Were Abuzz as Joey McIntyre Was in Town to Promote His New Series Return of the Mac Debuting on PopTV


It’s not every day that Joey McIntyre shows up in town to hang out with his fans, right?  Well this past weekend that is exactly what happened and I was lucky enough to spend a few minutes hanging out with my teen crush at the Xfinity store in Cherry Hill. See what a cute couple we make?

Joey was in the Philadelphia area to promote his upcoming scripted comedy series, Return of the Mac which will be debuting on POP TV  April 12th at 8:30P/ 7:30C. The eight episode series  is a scripted comedy starring  Joey McIntyre as a version of himself alongside his real-life family — wife Barrett and their three children, Griffin (8), Rhys (6) and Kira (5). Joey lands the role of a talk show host at a fledgling cable network called The Comfy Channel. As Joey starts to navigate the talk show circuit, he is joined by his often misguided manager and team played by a hysterical cast, including Adam Ray, Jamie Denbo, Katie Wee, Punam Patel and Jordan Black.RETURN OF THE MAC is executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny McCarthy and Joey McIntyre, along with Tim Gibbons (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Paul Greenberg (“Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris”) and Jenny Daly (“Storage Hunters”).

No doubt that Joey has quite a fan club in the Philadelphia area as I was told people began lining up to see him as early as 8 AM (in the pouring rain) for the 5 PM event in King of Prussia on 3/31 and as early as 2 AM for the 10 AM event in Cherry Hill on 4/1. Despite the fact that it was quite cold and lines wrapped all the way around the buidling,  fans were smiling and giggling as they waited for his arrival.  Once inside, tears began streaming for some as they were able to meet the heartthrob in person, hug him and snag a picture that they will surly cherish forever. Joey obviously enjoyed his fans as much as they enjoyed him!

Joey was so incredibly sweet (and just as handsome as I dreamed he would be)! He took the time to answer a few questions from some of the bloggers who attended.  When asked how his children enjoyed working with him on the new series, the doting Dad flashed a huge smile, beaming that “It was a lot of fun and they loved it.” Gah!  I cannot wait to see them working together in this new series!
