The babies are back and cuter than ever! ABC has premiered the first of eight new episodes of Bet On Your Baby for Season 2.
Melissa Peterman hosts the game show that challenges parents to try to predict their child’s next move in an effort to win money for their child’s future education.
In the second season premiere, 2.2 Million Viewers tuned in to watch 4 families playing for $5,000 toward their child’s college education. And while the parents play to win, their babies are just playing fun games in the show’s kid-friendly Babydome.
Then, new this season, all the parents return for a high-stakes game of “Baby Talk,” in which they guess the mystery word Melissa and their children are describing. One lucky family moves on to try to break the piggy bank and win a $50,000 college fund.
Bet On Your Baby is produced by Ben Silverman‘s Electus and 5×5 Media, who together co-produce NBC’s Fashion Star and TBS’ King Of The Nerds. The original directing format developed for the US series has been recreated in territories around the world, including China, the Philippines, and Korea.
During its first season, Bet On Your Baby found success as part of the network’s spring weekend lineup.
