With ratings solid and growing for ABC Family, the network is probably in no hurry to hook up the titular pair in "Melissa & Joey" (Wed., 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family). But they're going to put them in as many awkward positions as possible before they get there. This week, it was a double date that went south for both of them.
Mel first hooked Joe up with a CEO friend of hers, but Joe's aggressive charms backfired on her, and she left him hanging on their double date. Meanwhile, Mel's date seemed great, until he just couldn't quite get over his ex, even though it had been more than a year since she'd left him.
But, as a fun bonus for fans of Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence, they did get to dust off some of the moves learned during their respective runs on "Dancing With the Stars" for a fun dance to close the episode.
The tension will continue to build very, very slowly as "Melissa & Joey" airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
