Funny lady Melissa Peterman is the host of ABC's new game show Bet On Your Baby, which offers families the chance to win money toward their child's college fund - depending on how well they know them. But isn't there that old saying about never working with kids on TV?

Yesterday, BFTV sat down with Melissa to find out what it's really like to be working with two- and three-year-olds, what we should look forward to in the eight episodes that make up the show's first season, and if her hosting experience on CMT's The Singing Bee taught her anything that she brought to the set of this new series.

Watch the fun video interview with the Reba and Baby Daddy star below, and make sure you're keeping up with Melissa on Twitter (@followtheblonde) for more laughs.

Bet On Your Baby premieres tonight with two back-to-back episodes starting at 8 PM ET/PT on ABC.
