Baby Bachelor is the hilariously cute parody you need to watch right now

Just when you think it’s impossible to do a better parody of The Bachelor comes The Baby Bachelor from Jimmy Kimmel Live. Its second episode was released this week, and while Burning Love did a great job of sending up the ABC series, I think this is my favorite.

The quote-unquote series, starring Kimmel’s nephew Wesley, is both hilarious parody and impossible cuteness all in one. As with all reality TV, the authentic, unplannned moments between the babies are much funnier than the scripted/coached ones, and make this a must-watch.

Here are the first two installments:

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
