) will host Nick at Nite's search for the “Funniest Mom in America 2.” The competition -- a five-part reality series -- debuts April 4.
"Katey Sagal is the perfect choice to host this year's Search for the Funniest Mom," explains Sal Maniaci, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "Synonymous for her roles playing such memorable moms on two hit comedies, her talent and humor are sure to resonate with these moms as well as our viewers."
In this five-part elimination series, 10 finalists live together in a penthouse suite in New York City. During their stay in New York, they receive surprise visits from celebrity guests and the series' host -- Katey Sagal -- and compete in a variety of comedic challenges, each underscoring the contestants' talents and personalities.
The moms, divided into teams, tackle everything from entertaining an audience of kids to actual street performances in New York City to a sitcom screen test challenge. The weakest performers on each challenge will face off against each other in a head-to-head stand-up comedy battle. Over the course of the series, five moms will be eliminated and the five remaining will compete in the show's finale, performing stand-up comedy in front of an audience of hundreds. The winner will be awarded $50,000, the chance to develop her own show for Nick at Nite and host a special night of programming on the network.
