I mean, ‘original series debut.’ (Wow, those Freudian slips really sneak up on me sometimes.)
‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager‘ premiers this Tuesday on ABC Family. To summarize:
Good-girl band geek Amy is smart, talented…and pregnant. Super-Christian cheerleader Grace wants to wait until she’s married. As their secrets start to spread to the parents and to friends like bad-boy Ricky and wild-child Adrian, everyone’s secrets and stories start to come to the surface.
Having a field day blaming Juno, Jaime Lynn Spears, and Angelina Jolie for the increased rate of teenage pregnancy as of late, these same finger pointers are sure to make this new show the scapegoat of choice, especially if it’s a hit.
Funny thing is, for every finger you point at someone else, there are three pointing back at you (bet you never heard that one before).
Not to be outdone, NBC will present a new reality series this fall. Based on a British show by the same name, ‘The Baby Borrowers‘ is the result of a collaboration between The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and the television network.
Remember when reality TV was just about getting voted off? Ah, the good ol’ days!
