Discovery Family’s ‘Babies Behaving Badly’ has captured the attention of fraught parents across America, with ratings reaching an all-time high for the channel.
Every parent who has bore the brunt of their child’s temper tantrum will empathise with the caregivers in the clip show – and secretly enjoy not being on the receiving end of the fracas.
With videos of babies, laughing, crying and misbehaving racking up staggering amounts of hits on video sharing sites like YouTube, parents are capturing and sharing footage of their tearaway children like never before.
This week’s shows includes a young rocker, Cagney, from New Jersey, who flies into a rage when he is denied the pleasure of listening to Metallica before bedtime.
Another young ruffian lands herself in a spot of bother after sneaking a cow into the family home.
The action of the mini-cast is intercut with reactions from a team of five comedians.
Ty Barnett, Lynne Koplitz, Johanna Stein, Stephanie Blum and Joe Larson react to the shocking antics of the world’s most badly behaved babies.
Vice President of Production and Development at Discovery Family, Sarah Davies, said: “It's been our top rating non scripted show so far this year in the key demo, and the encores are playing well too.
“We love the show. It's fun and relatable, nearly every parent out there will get it.”
Watch Babies Behaving Badly on Friday at 8pm on the Discovery Family Channel.
