‘Speechless’ Episode Guide (May 3): The DiMeo Kids Celebrate Prom

“P-R–PROM” (05/03/17) – It’s prom night, and all three DiMeo kids are going, which leaves Maya and Jimmy with a rare night to themselves. Kenneth is shocked to learn that they like to spend their nights without the kids to bring up past arguments they have bottled up or ignored in the past.

Meanwhile, a wary JJ bonds with someone who is sick of being the center of attention at school functions, on “Speechless,” WEDNESDAY, MAY 3 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
