Also tonight is the series premiere (2 episodes tonight!) of Notes From the Underbelly on ABC at 10:01/9:01c. Andrew and Lauren have just found out they’re going to have a baby, and they’re having a difficult time following rule number one – keeping it secret. Suddenly switching to decaf, becoming a teetotaler at cocktail parties, and going to the OBGYN are all difficult to keep from family and close friends. Well Andrew and Lauren are about to learn that, when the secret gets out, the politics of parenthood can be just as demanding as raising a child. Sometimes all that “help” from loving but intrusive parents and “advice” from well-meaning but competitive friends who are trying to show you what great parents they are is not exactly what you’re looking for. Knowing what’s best for the child could be the easiest part… maintaining your relationships with family and friends can be the real challenge. It will probably be funniest if you are a parent, so I’m looking forward to it! :D
