Scott Baio is 46... and Pregnant Set to Premiere

Scott Baio PictureWhen the entire basis for a show is shot down, perhaps it's time to cancel said program.

Last year, Scott Baio is 45... and Single was a big hit on VH1.

But now that the former child star has married Renee Sloan - and had a kid with her! - it just seems like a second season isn't appropriate.

Nevertheless, VH1 has announced that Scott Baio is 46... and Pregnant will premiere on Sunday, January 13.

Scott Baio is 45... And Single's first-season finale ended with the commitment-phobic Baio completing his two-month relationship counseling program with life coach Dr. Alison "Doc Ali" Arnold and taking the plunge by popping the question to Sloan.

The couple's new daughter was born November 2, reportedly weighing 5-pounds, 10-ounces. While the newborn baby girl is the couple's first child together, Sloan also has an 18-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Baio and Sloan wed earlier this month in a rooftop wedding ceremony at a Los Angeles luxury high-rise, as VH1 camera crews present to film the nuptials for Scott Baio is 46... and Pregnant.

Additional second-season episodes will follow Baio preparing for marriage, fatherhood and instantly becoming a father to an 18-year old stepdaughter.

I can't wait to watch! Best reality series. He is honest and open enough to let us agonize through the struggles with him! He's made a heroic beginning. Does Scott have the courage to humble himself; the desire to keep owning up to his fears of being stuck? Nobody I know would have given up all of his comfort zone publicaly. Can he handle the commitment to a wife and baby? This is going to be good. Even if he doesn't do well, this will be great to watch.
