On tonight’s “Melissa & Joey“ season 3, episode 21: “Plus One,” Mel takes Joe to a work dinner. Upon meeting the press, Joe starts to spout his and Mel’s opinions on issues, which garners Mel bad press. Meanwhile, Ryder musters up the courage to ask his new Chem partner Stella out on a date.
The series is based on Mel, the grown-up, former wild child of a political family, who is now a local politician herself. When Mel’s sister ends up in prison and her brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits, she must take responsibility for her teenage niece, Lennox, and pre-adolescent nephew, Ryder. With Mel spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Joey Lawrence) who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family’s “manny”.
“Melissa & Joey” season 3, episode 21: “Plus One” airs Wednesday Feb. 12, at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
