Image Credit: Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic.comA new VH1 reality show will take viewers into the life of new father and former Saved By the Beller Mario Lopez “from the hottest parties to the dirtiest diapers,” according to a press release. (Funny, I never considered those two things mutually exclusive.)

The Extra host and his girlfriend Courtney Mazza (a dancer he met while performing in A Chorus Line.) welcomed a baby girl, Gia Francesca, in September. The show, full title Mario Lopez: Saved by the Baby, will follow their journey as new parents and Lopez’s quest to show off his bulging biceps as often as possible. That’s not a complaint.

It appears my calendar is frighteningly clear the night of the Nov. 1 premiere, so for that reason and that reason only, I’ll give the show one episode to wow me. (It honestly has nothing to do with the fact that I can’t let the past go. Nothing at all.)

Who else is in, PopWatchers? If you plan on watching, is it for nostalgia or because you think this show has promise? Most importantly, do you think Lopez refers to his girlfriend as “Mama”?
