TWAS THE NIGHT FOR SOME HO-HO-HOING ON ALL-NEW HOLIDAY EPISODES OF "MELISSA & JOEY" AND "BABY DADDY," AIRING WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10th, STARTING AT 8PM ET/PT
Burbank, CA (November 12, 2014) - There is a whole lot of fate and more than a little Christmas magic in the "Melissa & Joey" and "Baby Daddy" all-new holiday episodes, airing Wednesday, December 10, 2014 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
"Melissa & Joey" (8PM-8:30PM ET/PT) - In "A Melanie & Josiah Christmas" It's Mel and Joe's first Christmas as a couple, which leads to a competition over whose family ornament should take the prestigious top spot on the tree. To defend her ornament's worthiness, Mel tells an elaborate tale about how the star came into her family over 100 years ago. Her great-great-grandmother Melanie was engaged to the town's rich bachelor, Allistair, but her heart belonged to the lowly stable boy, Josiah. Trevor Donovan and Christopher Rich guest star.
"Melissa & Joey" stars Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence, Taylor Spreitler and Nick Robinson, and is executive-produced by Bob Young & David Kendall, Paula Hart, Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence.
"Baby Daddy" (8:30PM-9:00PM ET/PT)- In "It's A Wonderful Emma," Ben channels his inner Scrooge as he detests everything that has to do with the holiday season - the shopping, the crowds, the tree trimming, even the pageant at Emma's daycare. Adding to his bad mood are Bonnie, Riley, Danny and Tucker, who are overflowing with cheer until Ben can't take it anymore and wishes there was no such thing as Christmas. But when his wish comes true and the holiday vanishes, he unwittingly erases Emma's existence and alters the course of everyone's lives. Can Ben get his loved ones to believe in Christmas and bring Emma back before it's too late? Mo Gaffney ("Absolutely Fabulous") guest stars as pageant director Hermione.
"Baby Daddy" stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Derek Theler, Tahj Mowry, with Melissa Peterman and Chelsea Kane. The series is created and executive produced by Dan Berendsen ("The Nine Lives of Chloe King," "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" and "Hannah Montana: The Movie").
