06/25/2008 (09:00PM - 10:00PM) (Wednesday) : FIVE DIVERSE TEEN COUPLES JUMP INTO ADULT LIFE ON FAST FORWARD TO TEST THEIR RELATIONSHIPS AND READINESS FOR PARENTHOOD, IN THE GROUND-BREAKING SEASON PREMIERE OF "THE BABY BORROWERS" - Five young couples from around the country - The Baby Borrowers - arrive in Boise, Idaho to participate in a unique social experiment, which asks them to jump into life as an adult on fast forward by setting up a home, starting a nine-to-five job and becoming parents, first to babies in tonight's season premiere. As the eager couples settle into living together for the first time, each teen "mother" dons a simulated "empathy" belly, to wear at all times until the arrival of their baby -- except Dunwoody, Georgia's Kelly. Made self-conscious by her boyfriend Austin's stray comment, their heated argument puts their attendance at a pre-natal class into question. The next morning, five pairs of volunteer parents arrive to entrust their infants to each of the couples - and settle in next door to monitor what happens on closed circuit TV. Soon, as the novelty wears off and crying begins, many of the infants' parents - and even the couples themselves - are surprised to see which of the teens step up to this challenge and who can't handle the pressure.
