Season 1 Episode 16 of Speechless was watched by 5,340,000 viewers, resulting in a 1.60 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
The DiMeo family all have their own unique personality: a take charge mother (Maya) with an outlandish but no-holds-barred attitude, a husband who seems to be smarter than he thinks, a no-nonsense athletic daughter, a middle child who's the "brains" in the family, and their teenage son with special needs. The DiMeos are about to bring all that from a middle-class neighborhood they despised because of the location itself to a more upscale town in an effort to improve their way of life, with imperfect results.
As Maya fights injustices both real and imagined, the family works to make a new home for themselves and searches for just the right person to give JJ his "voice".
