Roseanne Barr Tapped to Host Third Season of Nick at Nite's Funniest Mom in America Competition Premiering Tuesday, April 3

Six-Part Reality Series Follows Real-Life Moms Vying for $50,000 and a Chance to Host a Night of Programming on Network

NEW YORK, Jan. 10 -- Nick at Nite announced today that actress, comedian and "domestic goddess" Roseanne Barr will host Nick at Nite's third season of Funniest Mom in America. The six-part reality series, which premieres on Tuesday, April 3 at 9:30 p.m. (all times ET/PT) follows the journey of moms across the country as they compete for the title of "Funniest Mom in America." One lucky winner will win $50,000 plus the chance to host a special night of programming on Nick at Nite. The series is being executive produced by Allison Grodner (Big Brother, Blowout). Funniest Mom 3 is presented by KFC.

"As America's original funniest mom, Roseanne Barr is our ideal host," said Tom Ascheim, Executive Vice President, General Manager, Nickelodeon Television. "Her comedy and expertise on child-rearing is sure to resonate with these moms as well as our viewers."

The series kicks off following the journey of moms who have been selected from auditions and regional competitions at comedy clubs across the country as they vie for the winning title. Twelve moms are chosen, and through an online component, a thirteenth mom will be voted in via the internet at nickatnite.com. All thirteen of these moms will compete in a semi-final showcase, in which six moms will be chosen to move on to the next round of the competition. It is these six who will compete in a number of various comedic challenges, work with special coaches and prepare for performances where week by week, one mom will be eliminated. The three remaining contestants will compete in the show's finale, performing their stand-up before an audience and a panel of celebrity judges to be announced shortly.

Perhaps best known for her starring role on the hit sitcom Roseanne, one of the most talked-about and celebrated sitcoms in history, the series garnered her an Emmy Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series in 1993. She has recently returned to her roots and began touring select cities in the U.S. and U.K. with her hilarious one woman show. In 2004, Roseanne costarred in the Disney film, "Home on the Range" with Judi Dench and Jennifer Tilly. Roseanne completed twelve children's songs (nine are brand new and original) and produced the accompanying videos in her cozy, family-run and kid-friendly Full Moon and High Tide Studio and released her first DVD for children entitled Rockin' with Roseanne: Calling All Kids!" which hit stores nationwide February 7, 2006.

Barr is actively involved in her production company and enjoys the opportunity to work with her family. FMHT recently produced Roseanne's standup comedy special, Roseanne Barr: Blonde and Bitchin', which aired November 4, 2006 on HBO.
