Oh, Those Inept Dads! 'Meet Mister Mom'
The rules of this competitive reality series are simple: two dads are left to care for the kiddies while their wives vacation at a McResort in the tropics. The father who parents the most effectively (based on categories such as "Housekeeping," and "Time Management") wins a scholarship for the sprogs. Sounds potentially "hilarious," but NBC's seemingly airtight premise fell apart by the very first episode when it was revealed that the contestants were actually good fathers. Both men scored high marks across the board, even with such scripted crises as a "new pet" (ie; a llama) appearing in the yard and wild ten-kid slumber parties arranged by the producers. Sure, one of the dads allowed his son to consume 14 Fudgsicles in a five day period, but where's the harm? Guess a bad dad is hard to find.
