MEL AND JOE STRUGGLE WITH HOME RENOVATIONS AS "MELISSA AND JOEY" PREMIERES ITS SECOND SEASON WITH TWO ALL NEW BACK TO BACK EPISODES
WEDNESDAY, MAY 30 AT 8:00PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (April 23, 2012) - With the house in disarray after a bathtub fell through the ceiling, the family is feeling the strain of close quarters in the season two premiere of "Melissa and Joey," premiering on May 30 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), followed by another all new episode at 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT.
In the premiere episode, "I Can Manage," Mel is feeling the pressure of balancing the massive home renovation with her duties at work. Determined to have the house fixed as quickly as possible, Joe convinces a reluctant Mel to put him in charge of the construction. But Joe's management style only makes things worse. Meanwhile, Lennox is thrilled when her school wants to put on her original play, but the reaction is not quite what she had hoped.
In the second episode, "If You Can't Stand the Heat," Mel is charmed by her "cabinet guy," but is less charmed by Joe's reaction to him, leading them to a fight about being too involved in each other's lives. However, their decision to give each other privacy does not turn out as planned. And Lennox is horrified at being appointed to her school's "spirit committee," until she meets the club's president.
The series cast includes Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence, Taylor Spreitler, and Nick Robinson. In "I Can Manage," the guest stars include Joel McKinnon Miller. In "If You Can't Stand the Heat," guest stars include Cody Linley, Bren Foster, and Joel McKinnon Miller.
