What to Watch: April 2

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 2nd 2010 6:00AM
'Wife Swap' (8PM, ABC) season 6 premiere
This may be one of the wackier swaps in the show's history, but the point is still made in the end, that each of the families can learn something valuable from its counterpart. The swappers: New Jersey mom Ro, who has three children -- three real children -- and 15 "reborn babies," $5,000 plastic dolls that have heartbeats, and, thanks to Ro's obsession, closets full of clothes. Ro and her three teens are also super slackers, while husband Jay is the sole breadwinner for his lounging family. Ro does a switcheroo with Alabama mom Teresa, who runs a coffee shop and hot dog cart with husband Dave. Actually, the couple gets by -- barely, thanks to the economy and the floundering coffee shop -- with a lot of help from their pre-teen sons, who are forced to help their parents run their businesses so frequently that the boys haven't even been able to hang out with their friends for more than a year. "Friends are overrated," says Dave.'Wife Swap' (8PM, ABC) season 6 premiere
