ABC GREENLIGHTS 'BET ON YOUR BABY' GAME SHOW _ ABC has given the go-ahead to Bet On Your Baby, a new primetime game show in which parents try to predict their child’s next move in an effort to win money for their child’s future education. The hour-long program will feature five families with toddlers between the ages of two years old and three and a half years old. Each family will play a self-contained, individual challenge against the house -- meaning they’re only competing against themselves, and not against other babies. At the end of the show, the five families return to play the college round for the chance to win $50,000 towards a college education for their child.
