Parents will be able to win money for their child’s college education if they can correctly predict what their baby is going to do next on the new game show Bet On Your Baby from ABC. The primetime game show has just been greenlit by the network and could be airing as early as April.
 
Comedienne Melissa Peterman (Baby Daddy) will be hosting the series. For now, ABC has ordered just eight episodes of the show.
 
In ABC’s official announcement, Peterman was quoted as saying: “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 playing the game. As someone who likes funny, there is no one more naturally hilarious and fun to watch than a toddler. I am thrilled to be working now with both ABC and ABC Family, and I look forward to a long relationship with Electus and 5×5 Media.”
 
The Details:
 
Every parent thinks they know their baby well, but are they willing to bet on it? Bet On Your Baby will reveal the answer to that question each week in an hour-long program featuring five families with toddlers between the ages of two and three and a half years old. Each family will play a self-contained, individual challenge against the house — meaning they’re only competing against themselves, and not against other babies. At the end of the show, the five families return to play the college round for the chance to win $50,000 towards a college education for their child.
