New Reality Show Leaves Fathers Holding The Bag

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new family-oriented reality television show isn’t exactly male friendly.

That’s because Meet Mr. Mom gives mothers a one- week luxury vacation from their family and leaves the fathers holding the bag.

The six-episode NBC show pits two temporarily motherless families against each other to see how the fathers mind the kids for a week.

The dads will be graded on how well they do all alone – including keeping the house spotless and organizing sleepovers and pool parties.

The dad that scores the highest will win his family an undisclosed prize.

Executive producer Robert Riesenberg says the series will show just how under-appreciated moms can be. As he puts it, “All dads think they’re involved with their kids’ lives, but compared to mom, they’re not.”

Although many moms would cringe at leaving the kids with their less organized husband, Riesenberg figures most of the moms will see the week vacation as “a welcome break.”

Meet Mr. Mom premieres Aug. 2.
