ABC Renews Three Reality Programs

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Prime Time, Reality, ABC, Renewals,

Supernanny, Jo Frost Three ABC reality programs have been picked up for additional seasons—maybe one of your favorites was among the bunch?

First, America’s Funniest Home Videos will be making another return for, get this, its eighteenth season. Unbelievable that it’s been on so long. And even more unbelievable to me—how people getting hit in the crotch passes for a funny video? I don’t know about you, but I always feel bad for the people who are hurt. But hey, if you’ve got a shot at earning money for your pain, why not go for it?

Wife Swap will also return, marking its fourth season. This show is so strange to me because I don’t know why anyone would want to switch and play mommy to another family. Call me crazy. Especially since some of the families on this show are nuts.

Supernanny also returns for a fourth season, and, of the lot of these renewals, this is the one I really enjoy. The nanny on this show has heaps of credibility, mainly because of her accent. I mean, did you see Mary Poppins? Jo Frost (pictured right) has got the nanny air about her. Seriously though, she seems to have the touch and I often wonder what kind of nanny miracles she could work on my rambunctious kids.
