Premieres Follow All-Day Marathon of "Melissa and Joey" On May 29 from 12:00-8:00 PM ET/PT

Burbank, CA (May 1, 2013) - Summer starts off with laughs on ABC Family's New Comedy Wednesdays featuring Season Three of "Melissa and Joey," followed by the Season Two premiere of "Baby Daddy" and the series premiere of reality show "Dancing Fools."

In the Season Three premiere of "Melissa and Joey," entitled "Works for Me," airing Wednesday, May 29 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), Joe pursues a new job opportunity, sending Mel into a panic when she realizes he may actually leave. But the job isn't quite what Joe expected, causing him to reevaluate his place in the house and Mel's scheming to prove how much everyone needs him. Meanwhile Lennox thinks her artist boyfriend, Zander, may have found another muse, and Ryder's class trip has an unexpected outcome.

The laughs continue in the Season Two premiere of "Baby Daddy," airing from 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT. In the episode, entitled "I'm Not That Guy," Ben thinks he might like Riley and tries to convince her he's changed his playboy ways. Riley invites Ben to be her date at a work party, but Ben's efforts to prove he's dependable fall short. Danny hopes to come to Riley's rescue, but arrives only to find Riley getting friendly with another man (guest star Matt Dallas). Meanwhile, Tucker schemes to go out with a model, and Bonnie attempts to get to know a handsome stranger...with a little help from Emma.

Then, from 9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT, get ready for some dancing hilarity with "Dancing Fools," from the producers of "The Singing Bee" and "Oh Sit!" and hosted by "Baby Daddy's" Melissa Peterman. It's the ultimate comedy reality studio dance show, featuring the best, funniest, most outrageous and memorable user-generated dances caught on camera and presented in front of a live studio audience. From viral videos to original dances to tribute videos to dance bloopers, we gather dance videos from all over and have fun with them. We also invite the dancers of two user-generated videos to recreate their moves in studio for a chance to win $10,000.
