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.
