ABC debuts Wife Swap Sunday.

ABC debuts Wife Swap Sunday.
The real wife-swapping show, imported from the UK by ABC, will debut with a “sneak preview” on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET, following the 8 p.m. debut of a new season of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The series then moves to its Wednesday at 9 p.m. time slot. In the preview episode, “A disorganized woman with 25 pets trades houses and families with an obsessively tidy woman who hates animals.” Sounds like fun. And if you want to dump your spouse on another family for a while, the show is still casting.
