Parent-friendly programming alert! ABC has just announced that it's adding a new primetime game show to its Spring lineup, and we're loving the premise! Bet On Your Baby is an hour-long show that will feature parents trying to predict their toddler's next move. Each episode will focus on five families with tots between the ages of 2 and 3 and a half. The families will compete in self-contained challenges against the "house" (as opposed to playing against each other), and at the end of the show, they'll have the chance to win $50,000 towards their child's college education.
Bet On Your Baby will be hosted by actress and comedienne Melissa Peterman, who has had roles on a variety of network and cable television shows, and is currently part of the cast of ABC Family's Baby Daddy. "I'm very excited to be hosting Bet On Your Baby. The concept of the show just appealed to me on many levels, because as a mom, I liked the fact that the kids are having fun and being themselves — it's the parents who are playing the game. As someone who likes funny, there is no one more naturally hilarious and fun to watch than a toddler," Peterman said. We couldn't agree more! How do you think you'd fare in trying to guess your baby's next move?
