We came across this short piece in the Miami Herald, "Your Toilet Training Tot Can Be a Star" and wanted to know what you all thought. It appears producers are casting for a new reality show wherein families will contend for rewards and the possibility of staring in a television ad for the winning family. The hook? The competition will involve families seeking to potty train their toddlers. While the Miami Herald article makes no direct mention of "Jon & Kate Plus 8", a writer at Babble.com picked up on the piece and believes the inspiration for this new show can be directly tied to the ratings success of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" and "the goings-on in the Gosselin family bathrooms."
Anyone who has spent any time blogging about the Gosselins knows the potty scenes of previous seasons arouse pretty strong feelings in many watchers. What do you think of this new show? Do you consider it tacky and absurd or just another blip in the craziness of reality television?
Perhaps when all is said and done, the Gosselin sextuplets won't be the only children of their generation to have been watched by millions on the potty!
