There will be two seasons to watch for on Friday, as domestic-themed ABC reality series Wife Swap and Supernanny close their respective seasons with great episodes. Wife Swap and Supernanny, which were both recently renewed by ABC, will air their finales at 8pm and 9pm respectively.
On Wife Swap, the season finale will feature a family that operates a haunted house attraction swap with a strict, old-fashioned family that doesn't even allow their kids to watch the television or surf the internet. Somehow, only cobwebs are the only things that these two families have in common.
As for Supernanny
, Jo Frost will deal with the Krolikowski Family, whose four kids fight so viciously that blood is sometimes spilled. The British import will have her hands full as she also deals with the equally problematic parents - a mom who yells and a dad who spanks. The episode will follow Jo's attempts, no matter how successful or futile they are, at disciplining these four kids.
In other news, Wife Swap
, which allows one parent to swap places with another household for a week to experience how it feels, is now casting for its upcoming season and invites families to be part of the purportedly life-changing quality of the Wife Swap
experience. Potential families can live anywhere in the country, must consist of two parents, and have at least one child, age 7-17, living at home.Supernanny
's fifth season had been unprecedented, as Jo Frost criss-crossed America to take on some of the toughest parenting challenges ever, including an NBA star and his family, a family headed by deaf parents, a family dealing with a child with ADHD who had been suspended five times and is only in kindergarten, and parents who are in the midst of deciding whether or not to divorce.- Glenn Diaz, BuddyTV Staff Columnist
