ABC-TV’s reality show “Supernanny” is looking for local families who need … well, a “super nanny.”
Terry Hazlett of the Observer-Reporter says that the network is hosting an open casting call from 12 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Boscov’s in South Hills Village.
An accompanying press release says the show is seeing families “from a variety of backgrounds” and is especially interested in “teen moms; parents with mean girls or bullying boys; culturally diverse parents; and divorced parents who are both seeking help.”
Notes Terry: “While you’re not likely to be nearly as embarrassed as knucklehead contestants who agree to appear on ‘Moment of Truth,’ be warned that your parenting skills might not be cast in an especially good light.”
That’s a nice way of putting it.
I’ll be more blunt: They’re going to make you look like an idiot in front of 8 million people. If you’re starved for attention and only have two working brain cells, well, the line forms on the right.
The show’s seen locally at 9 p.m. Wednesdays on WTAE-TV (4), Johnstown’s WATM-TV (23), Youngstown’s WYTV-TV (33) and Erie’s WJET-TV (24).
