Writer Dan Berendsen has become quite the tween and young adult whisperer in recent years, penning series and movies for the young generation — including Hannah Montana: The Movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam and ABC Family's recent drama The Nine Lives of Chloe King. Now Berendsen is back at ABC Family, but this time returning to his sitcom roots with Baby Daddy. The show, which airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c, stars Jean-Luc Bilodeau as a twentysomething guy whose ex-girlfriend dumps their baby at his doorstep and then splits. Tahj Mowry, Melissa Peterman, Derek Theler and Chelsea Kane also star. Berendsen took a pregnant pause to tell us why we should make room for Daddy.

Pretty Little Liars Boss: A's identity, motivation will all make sense
Not content with just having the most successful year in its history, teen titan ABC Family has unveiled a peek at some of its new original programming and we'd be pretty little lairs if we said some of it doesn't already have us hooked.

14. Saddest Confession: On The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki tears up and tells Tamra that she and her husband Donn are having "major issues" and that she's been praying every night for them to come together. She explains that they only talk to each other a few times a month and haven't had sex in almost two years, but feels conflicted because God hates divorce. Of all the marriages that have fallen victim to the Real Housewives franchise (and there have been a lot), this is one we wish hadn't.

Cheers to the real winner of Dancing With the Stars: Chelsea Kane...
Yes, Kirstie Alley got the lowest scores of the evening. And no, she didn't have a marching band like Hines Ward or do death-defying lifts like Chelsea Kane. But she still has a very strong shot at winning Dancing With the Stars.
Why? Because the studio audience — usually a very accurate barometer of viewers as a whole — wasn't just a little upset with her scores for Monday nights' samba and freestyle (a total of 54 out of 60), they were thoroughly ticked ...
Kirstie Alley, Hines Ward, Chelsea Kane
Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars may be touted as one of the closest ever, but 52 percent of TVGuide.com readers think Hines Ward will run away with the Mirrorball trophy come Tuesday night. Still, that doesn't mean we can count out fan favorite Kirstie Alley and Disney young'un Chelsea Kane, who along with the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, make up the top-scoring couples of the season.
"This season has been so up and down. There have been so many people on top of the leader board. I think it's really going to come down to who the audience wants to see," Ward's partner, Kym Johnson, says. "All three are such different personalities and such different styles. This one is totally up in the air, I think. You just don't know."
