BabySugar Diaries: Dad Camp Turns a Critical Eye to Fathers

After two seasons of tears, fights, and gut-wrenching decision making, MTV's younger sibling is turning the cameras from pregnant teen moms to the 20-something men who often put them in their expecting way. With last night's premiere of Dad Camp, VH1 turned to its familiar "rehab" formula to whip six soon-to-be fathers into shape.

The boozing, drug-abusing, and womanizing boyfriends will go through relationship therapy and baby prep classes, in hopes of becoming responsible and caring fathers in time for their lil ones' arrivals. At the end of the 30-day experiment, the expectant moms will decide if the men can remain involved in their children's lives. Though the show features the usual reality show fare (there are enough screaming matches and tears to fill a week's worth of reality programming), the show's central message — the importance of male influences in kids' lives — is respectable, even if the participants themselves are not. Did you tune in to Dad Camp last night? If so, will you continue watching?
