Melissa & Joey stood as Wednesday's No.1 cable TV telecast at 8 o'clock in Adults 18–34, Women 18–34, Women 18–49 and Females 12–34 Demographics.
As she tries to juggle being a councillor and a guardian, she gets a little overwhelmed. Mel is hesitant to do so until she finds out Lennox wrote a poem about her principal, Miss Lunt (Vernee Watson), that wasn't so nice. Before leaving for a meeting, Joseph "Joe" Longo knocks on her door.
He apologizes for an outburst (seen earlier in the episode) and asks if she can get him a job.
If she doesn't apologize, Lennox cannot go back to school.
