Kristin Davis, known for her role in Sex and the City, is back as host of a bizarre series in which men compete to impregnate a single woman. Labor of Love is now airing on FOX Thursday evenings at 9:00 pm ET/8:00 pm CT.
The series features a female contestant getting to know various men in an attempt to choose one to be the potential father of her future child. The men compete to become the father of her child in a way that’s similar to the popular reality TV show The Bachelor. The expected outcome of the show is that the female contestant and the potential father she chooses will start a family together. But there is no mention of marriage in the show's advertising. It's all about partnership.
"The labor is mandatory; the love is optional," Davis says in the show's trailer.
This is a dating game on steroids. It goes from dating to mating by taking viewers along on one woman's unconventional and nontraditional journey to potential love and motherhood.
Here’s how FOX describes the new series:
In this dating reality show with a twist, a woman who is ready to start a family, but has yet to meet the potential father of her children, decides amongst aspiring fathers-to-be who go through challenges that put their parenting and partnership skills to the test. Each week, the mother-to-be, with the help of host Kristin Davis as her sounding board, decides who advances to the next week and gets another chance to prove themselves worthy of starting a family with her. Otherwise, she may choose to continue on the path to motherhood on her own.
The implications and innuendos of the show plus how it is being marketed is highly inappropriate, as is the whole idea of a woman choosing the father of her child based on a series of competitions.
