TV show description:
Following the success of the My Fake Fiance TV movie, Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence star in this series about a local politician who hires a former commodities trader to be the family’s new male nanny.
Mel Burke (Melissa Joan Hart) was born and bred into a political family. After a wild childhood, she’s now grown up and forging her own path through city politics. Her sister lands in prison, leaving her brother-in-law to go on the run after his company is rocked by a scandal. Mel takes in her sister’s two teenaged kids, Lennox and Ryder, and realizes she’s bitten off more than she can chew.
Joe Longo (Joey Lawrence) is a former commodities trader who lost his job. His wife is leaving him, he has no place to live, and is losing his Porsche. He needs a job and place to live badly so he convinces Mel to let him be the family’s new “manny.”
Lennox Scanlon (Taylor Spreitler) can identify with Joe’s plight. She was brought up on private schools and nice clothes and loves to have crazy fun with her Aunt Mel. Now that her parents are out of the picture, she’s going to public school, wearing clothes that aren’t too hip, and life with Aunt Mel isn’t much fun anymore either.
Little brother Ryder (Nick Robinson) seems to be following his mom’s path to jail time. While he’s on the basketball team and loves football, he also skips out on school assignments and sets fires. He needs some help from Aunt Mel and Joe in getting back on the right path.
Episode #104 — Double Happiness
Mel and Joe both panic when she gets news that will directly affect her senate run — they’re having twins. Meanwhile, Ryder gets his orders from the Navy. Lennox and Zander have life-changing epiphanies after they almost die in a car crash on the way home from a wedding. They decide to get married themselves. Also, Joe’s book gets published.
First aired: August 5, 2015.

Such a great show so funny love it family watch every episode missed watching it.
I love this show. I don’t understand why they always cancel a good family show and keep the shows that are gorey and evil.
Should be renewed!
So has to be renewed! They always cancel the best shows. Hope they bring it back somehow.
would like to see it renewed
wished renewed for three more seasons.
I wish they would have renewed for two more season. Loved the show would like for it to be back on
I really miss Melissa and Joey. I thought it was a really good show. My daughters (18 and 14) even loved the show. We would watch it together often. Sad to see another good one go away. I would have loved to see them raise a family, all with a political career she was going for.
I THINK IT SHOULD BE RENEWED. LOVED THE ACTORS AND SHOW
Loved it. Hope to see it renew.

I love Melissa & Joey and want to see what comes next for all of them. You can’t end a series with so much happening for the entire cast. Cancel Young & Hungry. Melissa & Joey is so much better!
I can’t understand how family-friendly programs get cancelled, but they continue to keep these dumbass “reality” shows on air. Really?!
