Wednesday's TV Report

So as much as I disliked last night's "Secret Life", I made myself watch NBC's "The Baby Borrower's" tonight. It's the story of several teenage couples who are "lent" babies to raise for a few days. It's a realistic portrayal of the struggles of taking care of infants, and the teens portray an array of responses. I don't think it's compelling television, but at least one could TIVO it for an interesting school or church group discussion. Next week, they take on toddlers.

NBC advertises it as "it's not TV, it's birth control." And for young people who romanticize having babies, it just might be.
