    I don't know about that, but I'll definitely watch the show when it comes out on the 25th.

    No child should be left in prolonged distress for the entertainment of strangers. When a community becomes aware of a child's distress, that distress should be addressed. No one should make a dime off of this show, especially not NBC. No child of mine would ever be a part of anything like this.

    Whats more entertaining than young children in distress? That's why Amber Alerts are so prolific... its raises the pulse of the general public. if nothing more it keeps everyone on their toes and a little bloodthirsty, minus the blood. so more like tear-thirsty. you go Baby Borrowers!

    Holy hell. This is getting crazy! Look I think this show is a good idea. Teen pregnancies in this country are ridiculously out of control. Something must be done. I hope this show has the desired effect.

    Desired effect? Is the desired effect that random couples become willing to give their babies to teenagers to teach them a lesson? that's some lesson there. i dont know who will learn more - the teens or the parents. the babies wont remember a thing

    Whoa, intense conversation here! I think this is just what NBC wants, a bunch of crackpots stirring up controversy. Nothing sells like controversy, so NBC thanks you all!!!

    I am hoping that this show will be educational for many, not just those that participated. Teen pregnancy is way out of control!

    How about baby food and toys r us? Justv to prove that all this mudslinging and overacting has no effect on the show or it's sponsors.

    Agreed, I think the whole "social experiment" angle is exaggerated. It is entertainment.

    Let's make a reality show where the "cast members" or "contestants" or whatever have to be sexually active teenagers in order to participate. Doesn't that reward behavior that is a precursor to teen pregnancy?

    Baby Borrowers isn't exactly reinventing the wheel here. Every summer my friends leave their baby with this guy who has a really nice pool. They figure if he can afford to own and care for that swimming pool, he can afford to look after the kids for a couple months.

    The fact that you call people who would do such a thing your friends somehow does not surprise me.

    Really? Affording a pool equals good parenting? Strange.
