Dayton Adult Prom offers a chance to relive glory days

THE REAL O'NEALS - "The Real Prom" - As the school prom approaches, Kenny tries to think of who the best guy would be to ask as his date. With time running out, Kenny and Jimmy try to come up with the perfect "prom-posal" for the classmates they each have set their sights on. Shannon thinks the idea behind prom is a scam and would rather stay at home, but once Pat discovers she was asked to attend, he tries to convince her to go. Meanwhile, Eileen tries to keep VP Murray's romantic attention at bay but struggles to resist, on the season finale of "The Real O'Neals," TUESDAY, MAY 24 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT) on the ABC Television Network.

Most likely, your last prom night was a bit more awkward than romantic (curfews tend to do that), and the wisdom that you possess now was not around to tell you to avoid wearing that eye shadow with that particular dress. It’s okay though — you’ll soon have another chance to experience a spectacular prom night.
