A Dad vs. Daughter Fight on 'Melissa & Joey'When one big happy family gathers around the dinner table ... that's when the arguments begin and the knives come out. And that's the situation on 'Melissa & Joey' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC Family).

Mel (Melissa Joan Hart) has been given custody of her sister's two children: Teenagers Lennox and Ryder. But then Mel's father -- former Senator Russell Burke -- unexpectedly arrives in town, and he has some very different ideas about parenting.

[Spoiler alert.]

On the new episode, Lennox (Taylor Spreitler) is failing her chemistry class -- so Mel decides to get tough, forcing Lennox to stay home and study. However, Senator Burke (Christopher Rich) undercuts Mel's efforts by whisking Lennox away to parties. Pretty soon, Lennox is enraptured with her "fun" grandfather, and wants to move with him to D.C. ... Which is when the fighting around the dinner table really starts. Grandpa Burke has some very sexist plans for his granddaughter; these plans involve marrying her off at the earliest opportunity. Understandably, Mel is not pleased.

Will Mel manage to settle things with her dad? And will Lennox choose the easy way out, or will she learn the value of hard work?
